Hello, Stranger!

I am sure a lot of you thought that I had just disappeared off the face of the planet!
But, I am here to say that I am back from outer space. Well, not really. However, I am back from an amazing western Caribbean cruise aboard the Disney Magic. I plan on doing a trip report in a later blog, but I am still trying to settle into my routine again.

To hold you over until I get back into the hard and heavy blogging, here is a quick, easy and cheap recipe for you try!

Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken Quarters
This recipe is super easy to make and easy on the budget.
Chicken Quarters (How many quarters you put in depends on your family. We used about 4 lbs. of quarters and we plan on using the leftovers to make BBQ chicken sandwiches for dinner tomorrow.)
1 bottle of your favorite BBQ Sauce
Crock Pot
Place chicken quarters (fresh not frozen unless they are thawed first) into the crock pot.
Dump the whole bottle of BBQ sauce over the tenders.
Cook on high for four to six hours or on low eight to ten hours. (I prefer the low setting because it really makes the meat nice and tender. But, the shorter amount of time will make the dinner yummy as well.)
That is it! Throw some sides together like french or sweet potato fries, a veg and you are done!
The approximate cost of the entire meal including sweet potato fries and a can of veggies is about $6. The price will vary depending on how much meat you purchase and use.
