Family Ties and Eats

I had something strange happen today, on Facebook, of course. I received a message from someone I don’t know, they said they took a DNA test and it said we were a match for 3rd cousins.

I am intrigued, she went on to say her daughter said we look alike. I looked at her fb page and there are some similarities. Our smiles are eerily similar, I don’t know what to think.

I, of course, asked her familial relations, she said her mother told her that she had an affair and that the result was her. Super candid, she told me what she thinks is the name of her bio dad. His name doesn’t ring a bell, but the last name does.

The men in my family are notoriously, um, well, randy. My dad and my grandfather and my oldest brothers were not strayers. I know a couple of uncles that didn’t seem the type, but some of those others. Well, let’s just say there are family rumors.

The last name she told me is one that is familiar, but I can’t quiet place it. Maybe I’ll call one of my cousins and see if it sounds familiar to them.
The thing is, I look like my grandmother, the older I get the more I look like her. Her genetics are incredibly strong, whenever my family gathers I can see her. I used to think it was a trait passed on by my grandfather. I was wrong.

If this woman is really related to me, it is on my grandmothers side.

In other news, my version of crack chicken turned out amazingly well. here is the recipe, I know you all have been waiting with baited breath:

4 chicken breasts

4 chicken thighs, bone in and skin on, this makes for a more tender chicken breast.

1 bottle of Good Foods Caesar salad dressing

Cream Cheese brick

Half a cup of chopped up bacon. I use the Kirklands bacon that is already cooked and chopped up.

This all goes into a crockpot.

I put the breasts in first

Then the cream cheese

Then the thighs

Pour the dressing over the whole thing.

Last the bacon.

Cover and cook on low for 8 hours.

I am not going to lie, this was the most tender, tasty chicken I have ever cooked in my entire life.

If you are like me and hate Ranch, this is the chicken for you.

It is 100% Keto friendly, the dressing only has 1 carb as well as the cream cheese. that is it, no other carbs in the whole thing.

There you have it folks, my life in a nutshell, strange occurrences and a recipe all in one setting.

Bon Appetite, or dig in.

As usual any questions, comments or recipes you might suggest that are keto friendly you can leave here or send to me at
