Oh my heck! My son Braydon and I got caught in a torrential downpour yesterday.
If you live in Salt Lake, you know what I’m talking about. Braydon and I were out running errands and the rain started to lightly fall and within seconds it was dumping rain and then hailing. I thought for sure the hail was going to crack my car windows it was hitting so hard.
We pulled up to the store we needed to go into and I told Braydon I was not about to get out. He waited for a minute and said he was making a mad dash for it. I eventually did too when I could see the rain was not about to let up. It was crazy and we were laughing so hard. Our shoes were drenched from the huge puddles in the parking lot, our hair was dripping and we were a sopping wet mess. . . we were quite a sight!
It’s June my friends and we had to turn the heater and seat warmers on in the car because we were so cold from being wet.
Thankfully this Slow Cooker Spicy Chicken & Rice was at home waiting for us. It was the perfect comfort food for a cold, rainy miserably wet day. You know how I love slow cooker meals and this one is ranking at the top of my favorite list right now.
I made this a couple weeks ago and we liked it, but thought it could use a few tweaks, so that’s what I did. My boys went crazy for it. My oldest son Josh was staking claims on the leftovers to take to work and Taylor inhaled a HUGE plate of it in about 58.3 seconds.
To say we all loved it is a bit of an understatement. You could easily use this for tacos, or burritos, but honestly, it’s fantastic on its own. . . no shells even required.Print
