Weekly Fixins’ #3

Sorry I haven’t posted our dinners in awhile, I’ve been busy studying for midterms. Thankfully, those tests are all over and hopefully it’ll be smooth sailing until finals! Here’s what we fixed up last week (beware I went a little crazy with my crockpot)!

Disclaimer: I found these recipes on Pinterest and have linked the websites for them. These pictures are not my own and belong to the owners of the recipes.

Chicken Tacos

This recipe is easy peasy! It’s great because I put everything in the crockpot before I leave for class. If I get home late, Garrett can shred the chicken and eat whenever he’s hungry! Since Garrett is anti-cilantro, I left that out of the recipe! For the ingredients and directions, click “Chicken Tacos” above to go the recipe’s website.


Pulled-Pork-Stuffed-Potatoes

Pulled-Pork Baked Potatoes

I love making Mix & Match Mama recipes. This has been one of my go-tos recently. You marinate the pork in Dr. Pepper (my fav). We put the BBQ pulled-pork on a baked potato with cheese, butter, and sour cream! Mmhmm – it was delicious!


Creamy White Chicken Chili

This recipe was perfect for a rainy day! Again, I threw it in the crockpot and it was waiting for me when I got home. I seriously cannot express how much I love my crockpot! It’s a lifesaver. Garrett likes to add siracha to his chili for a little extra kick! Don’t forget to buy chips for dipping!

  5. Sprinkle on Italian Seasoning
  6. Put in oven for 25 minutes (stir occasionally)

  8. Add more olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and Italian seasoning
  9. Bake for 20 more minutes (stir occasionally)

This Thursday, we found out our building has a piping issue – water has been coming out the drain and filling our tub.  We’ve been making the trek to the gym just to shower.  When we weren’t waiting around for the plumber, we snuck out for dinner and brunch.  On Friday, we went to Bon Chons’ for Korean fried chicken and maki.  Then on Saturday, we had brunch at Hopewell.  We split a breakfast sandwich and maple-glazed wings on a donut waffle. Finally on Sunday, my friend recommended we go to this cute bakery in Brookline called Tatte.  We were a little adventurous and tried Shakshuka.  It’s a traditional North African dish with tomato sauce, bell pepper, eggs and feta cheese. We also got a breakfast croissant & it was phenomenal!
