Foodies



I have done a terrible job of updating my Recipe Blog lately.  Probably because I've done such a poor job of actually trying new recipes these past 6 months or so.  Regardless, I DID try a few new ones in the past week and they were both winners, so I think I'll share them. I'll also add them to the recipe blog so I can actually find them later.

The first one was a crockpot recipe- Crockpot Italian Chicken.  I found it on Pinterest here and I think I may have actually tried this one before.  It was really good and we'll try it again sometime.  We might try it over pasta instead of rice, but it was good over rice too.

 Crockpot Italian Chicken: 



Ingredients:
2-4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (can be frozen)
1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese (let sit out to soften- or stick it in the microwave)
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 pkg. italian dressing seasoning (the dried kind in the packet)
rice or pasta

Stir the cream cheese, cream of chicken, and seasoning together in a medium bowl. Place the chicken in the crockpot and cover with the mixture. Cook on high 4-6 hours or until the chicken is cooked and fall-apart-tender. After the first two hours when the chicken is softer i cut it up into strips for easier eating, but it's not necessary.  Serve over pasta or rice.  Yumm!



Okay the next recipe also came from Pinterest and was also a winner.  It's not REALLY a recipe, it's just something I did not know.  I found it here.  Who knew that you could make ahead burritos, freeze them, and then just stick them in the microwave when you're ready to eat.  I guess it makes sense since you can buy freezer meals, I just never thought to make my own.  


Freezer Burritos:


Basically, I cooked a batch of rice in my rice cooker along with a can of diced tomatoes, one chopped onion, and a clove of garlic.  I made a batch of burritos using the rice mixture, black beans, refried beans, chicken, cheese and salsa.  Then I wrapped them up individually and stuck them in the freezer.  When we're ready to eat them, we'll just unwrap them and stick them in the microwave for 3 minutes.  Perfect!

  2. I really need to be better about planning meals for us during the week. I'm always making game time decisions. These look great!
