Today was a “what is in my freezer?” kind of dinner day.  It rained here all day and although I love the rain, my oldest little one loves to go outside and run off energy even more.  When he can’t do that, it makes for an interesting day. Today, was an interesting day.  Couple that with me staying up too late last night, and dinner becomes quick and easy.

Tonight I mixed broccoli with my leftover cheesy potatoes from last night.  We also had barbecue chicken sandwiches  that I pulled from the freezer.  I used this recipe for Crockpot Barbecue Chicken as inspiration. The main difference is that I made my own barbecue sauce! It’s really very easy:

1/2C. Ketchup

2tsp Yellow Mustard

1/8 tsp Chili Powder

1T Worchester Sauce

1/4C Brown Sugar

1/2-3/4C water

Boil in a saucepan, then pour over meat. For a thicker sauce, add a cornstarch & water mixture. Note: my mother-in-law mentioned to me that when she makes this she adds some store-bought sauce to it as well for flavor. I did not, and we liked it just fine 🙂

What are you having for dinner?
