So you might remember I got myself a new slow cooker last week and then planned two slow cooker meals. Guess what? Both of the meals bombed….BIG TIME! I obviously need to work on the whole time thing because both meals were way overcooked and I am here to tell you that overcooked meat is B.L.E.C.H…blech. So here is the thing that is confusing me. Instead of the front saying low and high (now wouldn’t that make sense?!) they make it complicated and use symbols I and II. So being the fairly intelligent girl that I am (a-hem, no comments from the peanut gallery) I assumed that one line would be low and two would be high because hello two lines is more than one line, right? I think I’m wrong or my slow cooker is on speed, one of the two. Sheesh I hope I figure it out soon because I can’t handle a repeat performance of last week.
Thankfully the Smarter Fettuccini Alfredo made up for it! Oh my word was this ever good and my hubby didn’t stop raving about it. So easy too thanks to the overcooked leftover chicken we used. I’m pretty sure it only took my daughter and I about 15 minutes start to table to get er done.
So next week ladies (guys?) in honor of Christmas I want to run another MPM Family Favorites Edition because I know you’ll all be breaking out the good stuff to serve to your family and friends.
You are all invited to share at least one of your family’s favorite holiday recipes or the link to that recipe. Just wanted to give you the heads up so you can be thinking about which recipe to include.
Okay so here is what we’ll be eating this week and you’ll notice we have another fondue on the menu. This is a BIG holiday tradition in our house and if you want you can read all about it here. So fun!!
Tuesday: Pork Schnitzel
Wednesday: Baked Teriyaki Chicken
Thursday: Leftover buffet
Saturday: Potluck Church Supper ~ not sure what I’m bringing yet, any suggestions?
Sunday: Beef Stew (which works perfectly with all the fondue leftovers)
