Three of which ended up being put on quarantine for outbreaks of the flu or various nasty stomach viruses.  So no wonder I’ve had two bad respiratory viruses and two stomach viruses this winter.  The latter resulting in a diet that resembled the boiled chicken, rice, and yogurt diet we feed our dog when he’s sick.  So when I was finally feeling normal enough again for real food, I (and the baby) wanted it all.  Like enchiladas.  And tacos.  Being the hungry preggo I am, made “both”:  Crock Pot Chicken Enchilada Tacos!
