Little Bunny Foo-Foo and Smoked Chicken
This little bunny is sunning out in our back yard this morning---cute. Bunnies like our yard because we have no pets out there, and lots of hiding places from the neighbors' cats.
We smoked some chickens. I love having meat on hand in the refrigerator. Smoked meat doesn't get an old taste either, which is handy for me on my special diet--instead of carbs for snacks I need protein to keep my BP from spiking--weird, huh?
This pic was taken soon after we put them in our electric smoker.
This one is taken after the smoking process was over. I know they look dark, but that's because of the smoking--you don't eat the skin. We had a meal with part of one chicken, then I de-boned and skinned the remaining......and
bagged the meat into meal sized portions, which I can freeze or just refrigerate, depending on when I plan to use them. I'm thinking... barbecue sauce and wraps for one meal, and a salad for me. Soup is a possibility, pot pie also, that is if I could figure a way to make it lo-carb. I guess I could make some small portions to freeze for hubby, then fix a salad for me. He's on a lo-fat diet, while I'm on a lo-carb one. It's kinda tricky.
I just know this meat is great on a salad, or in a wrap, which is real handy when you've got other things you need to be doing.
