We're in the midst of getting ready for a move; painting, etc. SOOO, not much cooking going on, working hard & very tired. Looking forward to when we're all moved & I can browse thru cookbooks, again.

I made fish & rice. Only, this time, I made it all a bit diff than my usual. Fish was nekkid & microwaved for 5 1/2 min. Rice was not the usual flavored rice mix that I like. I cooked up brown rice, then fried it with a couple Tbl butter, chopped garlic, chopped bell peppers (yellow, red, orange, green) & about 8 oz froz brocc flowerets. Didn't have a recipe, for the rice. Was just wingin' it. We were both happy with the results. About the fish, lately we've been getting 5 oz fresh salmon fillets. We were leary of trying the salmon (b/c of faint memories of the first times either of us tried it......several years ago.) Well, I'm happy to say that it's actually pretty good. I've always thought it had a kind of a steak flavor. I mentioned that to DH & he ended up agreeing with me. "It DOES taste kinda like steak!" emoticon

my husband used to make his own BBQ sauce, but it's been so long since he passed I don't remember what he put in it. It was very tasty though. Happy Memorial day

Have been cooking a lot, but, not as much in the crockpot, lately. Today, I happened upon a BBQ sauce suggestion (additions to pre-made sauce.) SOOO, the feast we just had was BBQ chicken breasts, Grillin' beans & corn muffins. Just trying to use up staples & getting creative, in the process.

I hope you are all having a good weekend.

Was just @ BIL & SIL home and brought home food staples that they gave us. (They're cleaning out cupboards, getting ready for camping season.) This means I'll be doing some baking & cooking around here! They fed us a steak dinner, as well. Feeling very spoiled. SIL is a better cook than I.

I found a great Lentil Chili recipe on Pinterest. It tasted awesome! If you don't have a Pinterest account now it might be worth starting one for the recipes. I'm hooked.

I've had a free eBook of slow cooker recipes & not actually browsed thru it, until recently. Decided to make out my grocery list, using a couple of the recipes.

Today was the first dish: "Healthy" Chicken Stroganoff (pretty sure that was the name.) One could use fresh chicken, boneless skinless. I took a quicker route & used a bag of frozen chicken fajita strips. They're not breaded & are kinda spicey. The other ingredients are 16 oz low fat sour cream, 1 can of Healthy Choice cream of chicken soup, and an envelope of onion soup mix. Put the chicken in crockpot, first. Mix the other ingredients in a bowl, together; then cover the chicken.

IF you're making this with raw chicken, the instructions are to cook on high for 3 hours, then low for 2 more hours. If using precooked chicken, as I did, having it on low for 3-4 hours is really all you need.

Original recipe says to cook up pasta, separately; and serve the chicken mixture over the noodles. I had some extra biscuits to use up, so mine was just a spoonful over a torn biscuit.

Calories are about 300-400 per serving; assuming that you're getting about 5-6 servings. I didn't calculate the noodles as part of the calories.

I think you could easily add some broccoli, to this & it would be delicious, as well. emoticon

One of my crockpot dishes, this week, is with lentils. Haven't had them in years, but, I remember liking them.

Lentil Sloppy Joes sounds intriguing. How do you make them? Do you only exchange the ground beef for lentils ? Do tell, please!

I may try the chicken and dumplings next week. I love soy sauce, but I can't have it often due to sodium. Today is another recipe from my Healthy Crockery Cookery book. Pork Chops with Minted Herb Relish sounds appropriate for the first day of spring.

Hubby & I have been sick. I fixed up some beef, broccoli, rice, & beef broth in the crockpot. I kept out the soy sauce, ginger & brown sugar (as I know hubby isn't crazy about soy sauce.) I'm used to adapting recipes & figured all would be fine. Perhaps its b/c of this cold (me barely having any taste buds, right now.) Anyway, the beef & broccoli turned out NOT to be a fave. I added extra salt & pepper to mine, which helped some. Won't be making this one, again. Guess one can't always be perfect. emoticon emoticon
It's actually a SP recipe & is prob very good (if one actually FOLLOWS the recipe.) It's called Better Beef & Broccoli.

Went grocery shopping, today; have 2 crockpot dinners planned. First one is a SP recipe, called Better Beef & Broccoli. 2nd one is for chicken & dumplings. I'm currently fighting a cold (or bad allergies), so don't feel like doing much of anything. I think these will fit right in, as they look simple. emoticon

I've never done that (cooked the meat ahead, for various meals), but it sounds like a great idea. When one cooks the meat dry, about how long do you need to cook it for? I saw my mom make a roast (without adding any water) in the crockpot, once. I hadn't ever done that & was marveling at how well it turned out.

I put in 4 Lg chicken legs, atop crunched foil, to cook plain and dry. I will season the meat for various meals as needed. Then I added veggies, leftovers and rice + water and made soup.

I seasoned the soup right away, but held back so as to add some herbs &c, when I heat it up.

I'm a big fan of crockpots since my stroke, and then my recent major heart attack. It helps cut some of our costs too.

May the forks be with all y'all.

Hubby had a taste for Tator Tots, something I have only purchased once or twice previously. SO, decided to appease the craving and make a Tator Tot Casserole; with ground beef in a cream of mushroom sauce; a lil bit of shredded cheese & the Tators on top. Not bad. Not something I plan to add to my regular rotation of recipes; but that's ok. emoticon

boneless ribs sound scrumptious. Thinking of the wine, you can always make jelly with the wine you don't use in the sauce.

Boneless BBQ ribs. Did not add the whole bottle of BBQ sauce, this time; which made better results. Still working on the right consistency. In this instance, less is better.

Recently I added not only kale and kernel corn, but diced ham and seasoned it with Southwest seasonings (cumin, 3 kinds of chile powder) and pureed roasted poblano peppers. Woo hoo. Gotta love roasted green chiles, even when they are not New Mexican variety and are mild. They are right good for one too, having a chemical which is a booster for our immune system.

Happy eatings!
May the forks be with you.

I'm slow-cooking our version of "stone soup"; an endless pot of cut-ends, canned beans, leftovers, tailings and what-nots. Btw, that latter category is not the Muppet you can buy online (hahaha).

emoticon

We will be doing this through the winter season, as it helps warm the house a little but namely makes it smell great, provides a mug of soup to snack or supplement with a meal, gives us something to offer neighbors and guests.

My standard seasoning is garlic granuales, worcestershire, bay leaf and every week or so I'll drop in some molasses when there are ham pieces in the soup. I use my metal tea defuser, it is shaped like an egg, to hold the broken bay leaf I normally would not use for fear of leaving it behind.

Some months ago, I had some wonderful BBQ drumsticks that were cooked in the crockpot. I've tried to cook the same; but, mine always comes out much runnier. I'm guessing they made their BBQ sauce from scratch. Idk, but, I need to make a change to my own recipe...will have to do some searching.

Thaila, that veggie chili over a tator sounds so good I'm gonna have to put it on the menu for tonight. I'm going to top it with homemade plain greek yogurt (fat-free milk w/whole-milk-greek-yogurt starter, strained in fridge in colander through microfiber towel). Thanks for the idea.

Ciao for now, Chow for laters,
hahaha

I tried a stroganoff recipe that I'd found online, for dinner last night. It was real simple. Today, I hope to make up some chili. Don't know that it's a crock pot recipe, altho, I may turn it into one! I'm trying a "chili kit" (don't usually do that, but, this time am trying something different.) I usually make it from scratch, no mix.

I have just completed a spaghetti squash. The crockpot makes it amazingly simple. I hope to top it off with some garlic chicken meatballs in a pasta sauce.
