Food Post...

Its been quite a while since I posted a recipe- so here's 2 for you:)

Mom's Iced Tea: 
Our family drinks this by the gallon:) I make a gallon every other day!
 It is decaf and it is delicious.
 It reminds me of my mom who I miss so much!
12 decaf tea bags(I use Salada or Lipton)
1 1/3 cup of sugar
1/4 cup of lemon juice or more if you like it lemony

So, I bring about 4 cups of water to a boil with the tea bags (which I clip to the handle of the pot) 
Right after it comes to a boil, turn the heat down to low and simmer for a good hour-
Stir in sugar and squeeze out tea bags .
Add lemon juice
Add water .
I have a gallon pitcher that i make it in and just pour the tea in and then add water to the top.
Chill and serve- its great!

BBQ Pulled Chicken Sandwiches:
I LOVE this dinner and it is so easy. I just discovered it and I dont know why it took me so long!
1 lb of chicken
1 bottle of Sweet Baby Rays BBQ sauce (its the BEST) 
1 cup of water
Throw all of that in a crockpot for several hours till chicken is cooked.
Once chicken is cooked, use a fork to pull the chicken apart and shred it
I put it on warm and I left the lid off for a while so it thickened up.
Serve on a yummy bun with a great salad.
I just LOVE food:)
