Successful Crockpot Meal and Celebratory Plans

Monday, February 04, 2013

This Crockpot Mexican Chicken is the best easy recipe I've tried in a long time:

In order to reduce the sodium (I've been over sodium 2 days in a row this week, but had been on target the whole week before) I substituted a can of low sodium tomatoes for some of the salsa and then added a T. of chili powder and a tsp of cumin. I used lower sodium black beans and no salt added corn. Next time I may try to find a low sodium salsa or make my own. My daughter, who rarely cooks, said she will make this recipe. Her husband, who usually only eats one bite of veggies per meal, and both kids liked this recipe. I ate it with brown rice, but also had tortillas for the hungrier members of the family. I sprinkled a little cheddar cheese on the kids' portions. We also had fresh unsalted green beans.

I forgot to photograph it while cooking and even when serving, so all I snapped was what was leftover:

So that recipe was definitely a success!


Natalie was sick last week and missed a couple days of school, but is back to school today. Gwen has the cough, runny nose, and no appetite today. So I'm exercising here at home rather than at the Y. Tomorrow her daddy is off work, so I'll have my personal training session in the morning. Then, since it is Natalie's 6th birthday, her daddy is going to go to school and eat lunch with her while Gwen stays with me. Tomorrow eve we have a special meal and Natalie gets to open her presents, but we still plan to go to Disney on Feb 23rd for even more celebration!!
