The kids, my parents and I just got back from a weekend trip to Minneapolis to visit my sister, brother-in-law and their kids. A four hour car trip. With two little kids. With my mom and I trading times being jammed between the car seats in the back.
And having a few stops on the interstate so the little guy can relieve himself. Boys.
So tonight we are still at my parents and tomorrow we'll have the 1.5 hour drive home. I just couldn't fathom another 1.5 hour drive, so we are stopping here for tonight. With all of that said, we had a great time. Ate lots of good eats, visited ValleyFair, watched our niece's dance recital and spent quality time with the family in their brand new home. It's beautiful. Like being on the beach, without the beach. Splendid.
Oh, and did I mention these sliders?
My sister had these waiting for us when we arrived on Friday. You know her and I are alike, when I had pulled (no pun intended), this same recipe out of the same magazine, hoping to give them a try. She beat me to it.
They are delicious, simple and family friendly. A keeper for sure!
Pulled Buffalo Chicken Sliders
6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/4 c. buffalo wing sauce
3/4 c. water
slider buns (we used Hawaiian sweet rolls)
blue cheese dressing
Place chicken breasts in a large crock pot, sprinkle with salt and pepper. Pour in wing sauce and water. Set on LOW and cook for 6-8 hours. When done remove chicken, shred with a fork, and then return to the crock pot to soak up the wing juice.
Top chicken on a bun, with more wing sauce and bleu cheese dressing.
Who wants to give these a try? I could just eat just about anything doused in buffalo sauce. Wings, sandwiches, french fries, shoes....just kidding.
