There arsenic a bunch of slow cooker recipes so far my favorite is the crockpot salsa chicken on sp. Taco seasonings, salsa, cream of mushroom soup, and sour cream at the end makes a good sauce for over brown rice. Some green beans to go with it makes a good dinner. Everyone at work likes it too.

I made something like that for dinner last night, the only difference was I baked it. It probably would have been better with a crockpot, but mine broke, and unfortunately I didn't get one for Christmas. Sigh... But I love that meal, it was really filling! And rice goes wonderful with any vegetable, I think! It seems to take on the taste of anything you're cooking.

Another easy one for crock pot is the skinless chicken & salsa. I tried it and is is so yummy!
If you put in a lot of salsa you could just fix a pot of rice & wallah!
Rice is easy too especially if you get the quick type. But white rice is generally cooked with lid on tight from boil then simmer 15 min or brown rice 45 minutes. Just don't forget the lid has to be on when simmering on low heat. I usually add a touch of olive oil to pot beforehand but that is optional.

That is what I have been doing! But sometimes what I fix isn't conducive to keeping for another meal (like the cod fish I am baking tonight just doesn't taste as good the next day). Many dishes that have spices seem to meld better overnight (spaghetti, chili, soups). When I fix chili, I can have that again over a baked potato with a little grated cheddar cheese on the top for lunch or supper the next day.

emoticon It sounds small but you have to start somewhere. I made a taco stew type dinner in the crock pot. It was easy and a big win with the man. Next I made a super simple chicken dish and it was a win.

I am trying to cook twice a week rather than just heat a frozen something I bought at the store. Next am making a red potato dish I found on SP. Any other suggestions are very much appreciated.

Bring them on. I will be proof if they are easy or not.
