Welcome to the Weekend….(Summer Favorites!)

Slim Aarons Palm Springs Poolside here

It’ a quick morning post for me today. This afternoon I’m hosting an End of the Year Bash for my teachers, clinicians/counselors and administrators of my programs for students with Emotional Disabilities. Today is the last day of school and we will celebrate the end of a fantastic year.  It’s a pretty casual annual event with tapas and lovely wines.

Today will be a hot one so I’m not wanting to do any baking to heat up the kitchen.  I’m serving the easiest recipe for a party- ever! It’s perfect for a day like today. Put it together in the morning and by the time you arrive home the aroma will fragrance your kitchen and it will be ready to serve.

Slowcooker Salsa Chicken Tacos


                                         *3-4 Chicken Breasts (fresh or frozen)

                                         *1 (24 Oz.) Jar Salsa

                                         *Lime juice and slices

                                         *Corn or Flour Tortillas


                                       I like to garnish with:

                                         *Sour Cream


                                         *Avocado Slices

                                         *Squeeze of Lime

Add salsa and juice of 1 lime to slow cooker and stir to combine. Add 3-4 chicken breasts to slow cooker and coat well with the salsa mixture. Cover. Set slow cooker on high for 4 hours or low for 6-8 hours. 

When finished shred chicken with 2 forks to absorb liquid.  Serve with tortillas, sour cream, cilantro, avocado and squeeze of lime if desired. 

I wore my new nude and gold Sam Edelman sandals to graduation last weekend. The wedge heel is low enough that they were comfortable to wear and walk all day. They come in a zillion colors. I think they looked particularly good with my new summer favorite polish, ‘Glamorous Life’ from Deborah Lippmann. It’s the perfect mix of gold with a touch of silver.Yes, glamorous!
