Last Thursday I started cooking again for my family. It had been a long time due to our recent move.
Thursday morning I knew I would be busy all day unpacking and organizing so I threw in a quick and easy dinner. I made crock pot chicken tacos. This is by far one of the easiest and tastiest meals I do. You add 3-4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, a can of chicken broth, and a packet of taco seasoning. Cook 6-8 hours on low, shred, and return to the crockpot. You can make almost anything with this chicken. You simply cannot go wrong with this.
Friday morning...same thing. I knew if I didn't put something in the crock pot, then we would end up ordering in. I made these pepperoncini beef sandwiches in the crock pot. It made a bunch and again... it was a big hit. I also fed my father in law, nephew, and two of my brother in laws and they all liked it too. I followed the recipe and also added 1/2 a sliced onion to the crock pot. I served it on toasted rolls with melted provolone cheese.
I also made this chocolate ganache frosted chocolate buttermilk cake topped with peanut butter cups for my brother in law's birthday. It was a HUGE hit.
Saturday my mother in law came over for dinner. I made meat lasagna. It was quick and easy. I used half cheesy spaghetti sauce and half vodka sauce. It was great. I like the top to be crispy too.
Sunday evening I made homemade beer bread and this chicken broccoli supreme casserole. It was very good and I liked the fact that it was all homemade.
Tomorrow I have grilled buffalo chicken wraps on the menu... I am finding Pinterest to be a great resource in locating new items to add in to our meals.
