Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Hello friends, I hope you are winding down from a very productive yet peaceful day. I am still tired and will be heading to bed shortly, I may even miss my favorite show, “Real Husbands of Hollywood”.

Tonight’s easy breezy crockpot meal ingredients were: chicken tenders, diced tomatoes, frozen veggies, rice, and black beans

Spray crockpot with cooking spray, layer chicken, frozen veggies and top with diced tomatoes, no other liquid is needed.

Have a good night – Smooches!

I love to cook dinner for my men but because I have such a long commute from Pennsylvania I am always on the lookout for easy, breezy dinner ideas.  Crock pot cooking is definitely my all time favorite but I don’t mind firing up the grill or even the oven during the summer.  Last night’s meal was definitely easy, breezy using chicken breasts and Kraft Fresh Take mix.  In our house, no meal is complete without a starch and a veggie, I chose Zatarains rice, steamed broccoli and Marie Callenders Cheddar biscuits.

In my house crock pot cooking isn’t  just for fall and winter months, it’s actually more convenient and a real time saver in the warmer months.  After work the last thing I want to do is turn on the oven or stove especially when it’s hot like it was yesterday.  I would prefer to walk into the house to a fully prepared meal smelling good!  Using the crock pot gives me more time to sit on the “back 40” or take a walk around the neighborhood.

These were the ingredients for Monday night’s dinner.

1 bag of frozen mixed vegetables
2-3 chicken breasts
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can of cream of chicken soup
1 jar of mushrooms
Pam Cooking Spray

You can use any cream soups

Spray Crock Pot with Pam or any cooking spray
Put in frozen veggies
Top with chicken breasts or thighs
I cut up an onion and added the mushrooms

You can use dried onions if you don’t have fresh

Sprinkled a dash of seasoning and dried thyme
Covered chicken & mushrooms with soups
Cooked on low for 7 hours
If desired, add a cup of uncooked white/brown rice when you get home

Poured in a cup of long grain rice

Turned off crock pot, stirred in rice, recovered and let sit for 30 mins while I changed my clothes

Dinner is served - I sprinkled mine with cayenne pepper
