Thankful Friday and a Recipe

Thank goodness it’s Friday! At the end of the week, it’s nice to stop and take a moment to share the things I’m thankful for from the past week. It’s a great way for me to appreciate the big things and the small things.

 1. I am thankful for the supply of bobbins I had full of white thread. I ran out of white spools of thread so I’ve been using bobbins until I can get to the store.

2. I am thankful to my brother for sharing a great recipe for pulled chicken in the crock pot. It was so delicious, and worked out great on a hot day, since I didn’t feel like turing on the stove or oven.

  • 1-2 packages chicken breasts, depending on how many people you’re serving
  • Half a bottle of BBQ sauce
  • 1/2 cup Italian dressing
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • Simmer in crock pot for 4 hours.
  • Shred chicken. Serve as a sandwich, nachos, burritos or tacos.

3. I am thankful for the pads on our kitchen chairs. I’ve been sitting at the kitchen table a lot lately, finishing up a few freelance graphic design projects.

4. I am thankful for ceiling fans to keep the air moving in the house during hot days.

5. I am thankful for my wireless mouse. It works great when I’m doing some digital drawing.

6. I am thankful for the spare coffee maker I had in the basement when my regular coffee maker started acting up. I almost freaked out.

7. I am thankful for the stashes of scrap paper we have so I can quickly write down ideas when they pop into my head.

8. I am thankful the construction crew finally finished repaving our driveway. (Now if they would hurry up and finish repaving our street one of these days so we could put our cars in our garage.)

9. I am thankful for these next few weeks before my Fall semester of classes starts. I still have a big list of things I want to do!

Inspired by this ongoing series of posts.

Hope you have a few things to be thankful for this week.

  • I really want to make the pulled chicken recipe this weekend. Is it a half cup of Italian dressing instead of seasoning? Sorry to be a pest — but the crockpot is so great in the summer and I am always looking for delicious recipes. Thank you!

    • Yes, Suzy, it should be a half cup of Italian Dressing. Hope you like it!

      • I’m sorry it has taken a week for me to reply. I made crockpot pulled chicken last weekend and it was fabulous. I had a sandwich, sprinkled some on top of a salad and (from your great suggestion) tried it on nachos. I even admit that one morning when I was running late for work I had a few bites for breakfast. I am very thankful for this great new recipe!

  • Oh that chicken looks quite yummy right about now!

    Yes thank goodness for white thread and your construction workers for finishing your driveway!

  • Nice 🙂 Well, can’t try the recipe as I’m a vegetarian but as usual this Thankful Friday post is great!

  • I’m thankful for my birthday, because the alternative to being one year older really sucks! 😉

  • Hello Terri,

    Lovely photo of the Lily. Tradesman never turn up on time!!!! Hope next week you get to say that your car is in the garage. The recipe sounds delicious. We are having a chicken for tea tonight, slow cooked, the best way.

    Happy days.

  • I am thankful for the wonderful soil, sunshine, water and seeds that allow us to grow our own food to nourish ourselves, both mentally and physically.
