    Wow Amy- this looks amazing. Do you think there is anyway you could take your ketchup recipe and just add a few things to make it barbecue sauce instead. I made a ton of ketchup and I need to use it up and barbecue sauce (and these sandwiches) sounds like a great way.

    In regards to your question and post: I know how you feel. I am hitting midterms right now too and it is just as crazy. Last week, I thought I was going to collaspe. One night, I left around 8 am for school and didn’t return until after 10 pm! I haven’t had time for many meals either and it’s just been a miracle to have meals at all! :) Luckily, I was able to get a meal from a friend…and then use the leftovers for this last week.

    In regards to staying sane :) , I find that I have to get enough rest (as best as I can anyway) and take time for myself (even when I think I don’t have time to do so—that is most often when I need it most.) This can even be just short 10-15 min breaks. Go for a walk, read a book, etc. Or take an hour break or so. Just do something relaxing that you enjoy! Believe me, it keeps you sane and a lot happier! :)

    We will love your chocolate dessert no matter when it appears on here……I am in the same boat—I really wanted to post my chocolate crepes with strawberry filling and chocolate sauce for valentines day but just ran out of time. :) It will also appear soon. :)

    Best wishes with school and all of life! :)

    @Ari @ Food Intolerances Cook, Yes, make BBQ with the ketchup. I have and it’s great. Thanks for sharing this with me – I forget to stop and take a break. I just barrel right through. The days I do take a break, I’m much happier.

    It’s good to know that I’m not the only one who missed V-Day! Would love to see your crepes. Yum!!

    Great looking recipe, Amy. Thanks for posting even though you’ve been super busy! I find the thing that helps me most when I’ve got an insane schedule is taking or making the time for a good, nourishing meal to fuel my fried brain. This BBQ chicken looks like just the ticket!

    These kind of recipes are life-savers when time is scarce. I’m sure you did well on your midterms! And don’t you LOVE Ina Garten’s salmon and lentils recipe? I made a version of it back when I was doing my detox – and those lentils were so delicious, I felt like I was eating “bad” food. And hey, no worries on the Valentines stuff – I kinda ignored the whole thing on my blog too!

    This looks delicious Amy! Crock pots surely are a lifesaver during busy times! I tell all my friends who are mom’s that think they don’t have time to cook, to get a crockpot! They are truly amazing!

    Crocks rock. I break the rules all the time preparing mine the night before, storing it in the fridge, and then just plugging it in in the morning. Works great. This looks and sounds like a great barbecue recipe, Amy!

    Please listen to all the great advice, dear. You’re just starting out with your fabulous culinary adventure so you definitely need to pace yourself, so you can get the most of it and happily survive. ;-) BTW, one key that lets me know I’m juggling too many things is when I starting dropping things and tripping.

    Don’t worry about your intended Valentine’s Day post. We’ll need that on one of the days that we aren’t inundated with other sweet treats. I managed some special posts, but didn’t send out any cards or packages like I normally do. It’s different every year … I’ve learned not to fret about it (too much, anyway).

    Hugs,
    Shirley

    @gfe–gluten free easily, I have actually dropped a couple of things and didn’t go to Blissdom at the last minute because I couldn’t pull it off. Joe’s been helping with the grocery shopping, too, which is wonderful.

    I know what you mean about starting to drop balls – I’ve put a few down but so far haven’t dropped one.

    Good advice, my friend.

    That looks so scrumptious with the bread. What a yummy gf meal. Mouth is watering like crazy. I shouldn’t visit food blogs before eating dinner, lol :) .

    I’m using this with beef round steak tonight. It’s a leaner cut of beef, so the crockpot is the perfect place for it.

    @AmandaonMaui, Wow, it turned out really watery. The cooking time was definitely not enough for the beef. I ended up cooking it overnight. So about 15 hours. By then it could be shredded.

    It was always a possibility when trying to flex the mold.

    People often get put off by long term dieting side effects
    diets as sticking to a healthy eating habit.

    You can use the photos to help you with your regular dieting side effects.
    For example, I was able dieting side effects to weigh all my portions and use
    label information. First, putting dogs on diets is definitely adding a
    level of complexity to my life that I didn’t need even the small lowering that metformin produces.

    What i don’t realize is actually how you are no
    longer actually a lot more smartly-preferred than you might
    be now. You are very intelligent. You understand therefore significantly
    when it comes to this topic, produced me in my opinion believe it from a lot of
    various angles. Its like women and men are not fascinated unless it’s something to
    accomplish with Girl gaga! Your own stuffs outstanding.

    Always care for it up!
