OK, so no.
I don’t have a chicken dinner for today.
But we do have a winner!
Robin C! She squeaked in around 3 PM yesterday, and for whatever reason had a few complications with the commenting part – but she’s there on Facebook, and Rafflecopter picked her up and picked her out!
Robin – send me an email today, ASAP (firstname.lastname@example.org), and we’ll get your coffee into the mail directly from DOMA on this, the final day of the Bender Fundraiser! (And I’ll get your Fitness subscription squared away too.)
Thanks to all for participating!

LIVE so far apart. Continue reading
Don’t be fooled by the frying pan.
This recipe is for
slow cooker chicken.
Really, really good slow cooker chicken that you might want to stand over the crock eating before you serve it up.
The most perfect thing about this chicken though? It makes a HUGE batch.
We’re talking massive. Like,
“let’s feed 20 people” big.
“let’s feed the fam (of six people) three times over” big.
“Eat one portion now, freeze two for easy nights later in the month” big.
