The house sits on just over 1 acre of land a couple miles outside of Frederick (oh my, I guess it is time to get a riding lawn mower!) Here is the front view...
And a view from the back... Can you guess what probably sold Jeff the most on this house? Our neighbors directly behind us have animals.... and not just any kind - right behind our fence are Alpacas!
There is even a good sized shed that matches the house in the back corner!
Have you ever seen that Chevy Chase movie where they release some deer when they try to sell their house? During the inspection this morning, guess what I saw wandering around our house and driveway? Hmm... I wonder if someone set that up - hee hee!
The movers will be coming to get our stuff from Phoenix the second week in July and we should close on the new place shortly after that. The ball is starting to roll and it seems to be going quite quickly now! It's too bad I feel like crap to enjoy it all (I've had a sore throat since Monday... sigh) - but I guess I shouldn't complain!
Sorry about that - we can get back to the food now! One of the dinners I made before we left again was Pulled Chicken Sandwiches. This has so much going for it! The chicken is first rubbed with a flavor-packed combination of spices and then grilled off until done. I used chicken breasts for this, but the original recipe did call for thighs - feel free to use what you like! Once cooled enough to handle, you shred the chicken and reheat it in a slightly sweet and spicy homemade barbecue sauce. The sauce was just so good that I will be repeating it for other recipes - just enough vinegar and spice to punch up the flavors. We had them on plain buns, but go crazy and dress them up if you so please!
