Crockpot Dinner and Leftover Lunch

May 4th, 2015 at 06:36 pm

In my ongoing quest to not think about the couples counseling appointment I have tomorrow to see if we are going to be able to work things out, I bring you: my dinner.

I was so pleased this morning when I remembered to load the crockpot and turn it on before leaving the house - Crockpot Pesto Ranch Chicken, which is ridiculously easy.

Toss in some chicken thighs, most of a jar of pesto, packet of ranch dressing, and a little bit of chicken broth, ignore for 8 hours on low, then stuff face.

I had planned to have it for dinner tonight, then have pesto chicken and motz sandwiches later this week. Unfortunately, I underestimated how much the thighs would shrink, so after Voldemort and I ate our portions and I packed my lunch, we have MAYBE enough for one sandwich.

Which can work - I'll shred it pretty fine before layering it on the sandwich, we'll split it, and add some veggies and fruit on the side and it will all work out just fine.

I also took a small piece of the chicken for my lunch.

I pack bento most days, even if mine aren't as cute as many, and the easiest way to do that is to use leftovers. So here we have brown rice, pesto ranch chicken, parmesan corn, cucumber, and grape tomatoes. I will most likely add a snack of an apple and a peanut butter yogurt dip that is super yum in a sidecar container.

Voldemort's lunch hasn't been packed yet, but I'm planning on monkey towers (banana peanut butter bites on crackers), grape tomatoes, a plum, and...something.

I just hope I can actually eat tomorrow - when anxious, my stomach gets a little cranky, and I'm thinking the couples counseling definitely qualifies as something anxious making.

    Good luck with the counseling. Hang in there.

    Just want you to know I read through your whole blog yesterday, and I feel so sad for all you have been through. Good luck with the counseling, and my advice is, let it be whatever it is meant to be. Counseling can be a lifesaver, or a bandaid that came too late. Don't beat yourself up if it turns out to be the second and not the first. I was married to a difficult man myself, and the marriage was unsalvageable, but I am all right now; much better off, really, and much happier. And may I add, much more financially solvent! Hugs, hugs, hugs, and best of luck!

    Oh, and I think your bento box is cute!
