I have to be very careful about accepting any candy from my kids because those little stinkers have become very sneaky about trying to slip me some sour treats.
They know that I don’t like sour candy AT ALL! It makes me cringe just thinking about things like pucker powder, war heads, or sour gummies.
The bad thing is that all three of our kids know this, so they think it is absolutely hilarious to try to trick me into eating something very sour.
Usually they try to be very discreet and hand it to me when I am distracted, but I have gotten wise to their little tricks. Before any candy from them goes into my mouth it has to be inspected very carefully.
Now sweet chocolate…I’ll take that any day.
Recently, I found a few cookbooks on clearance at Barnes & Noble. One was a Taste of Home light meals cookbook. In this book was a recipe for sweet and sour pork that sounded like something we would like. Sweet for me, sour for them. Plus, it pretty much all happens in the crockpot, so it sounded so easy.
I modified a few of the ingredients for this dinner based on what was in our cupboard. I also used a package of boneless chicken that was in the freezer because we don’t do pork very often.
Everyone here gave this sweet and sour crockpot chicken two thumbs up all around the table.
