Playbook Challenge: Pulled Chicken BBQ Sandwiches

Tonight I cooked my first meal for the Dinner: The Playbook Challenge. Being me, I hemmed and hawed about what to make until about 6:00 tonight, then ran around to three stores buying every last ingredient for all three dinners. While this is not a method I recommend, I was still pretty pleased with how easily I was able to plan, shop, and get everything started, armed with my copy of the cookbook, and my trusty Rifle Design notebook.

As I drove home, I decided on the Pulled Chicken Barbecue Sandwiches, Sandwich Slaw, and Asparagus with Vinaigrette, because well, it sounded incredible, and it would pair wonderfully with the guilty pleasure TV we were planning on indulging in.  Mission accomplished on all counts! Please excuse the hastily taken, sub par photo; I took it on the deck in the last gasps of sunlight.  I wholeheartedly recommend all three recipes, and so does the Gent.  Stay tuned for tomorrow’s meal… and a better photo that will do it justice :)

BELIEVES: “A human being is part of the whole, called by us ‘Universe,’ a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest – a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation, and a foundation for inner security.” Albert Einstein “The important thing is not to think much but to love much and so do that which best stirs you to love.” St. Teresa of Avila “People say that what we’re all seeking is a meaning for life. I don’t think that’s what we’re really seeking. I think that what we’re seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonances without own innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive.” Joseph Campbell
