If you’ve missed my previous posts and would like to join in the Slow Cooker Challenge, it’s never too late! Go here to read more.
Today’s post is going to have to be short and sweet. I’m too busy to ramble…but maybe that’s a good thing.
This week, I made a recipe that I have made once before the challenge and blogged about: Thai Chicken and Vegetables. It’s a Weight Watchers recipe, but it is full of flavor and nothing that would make you think “diet”. You can follow the link to find the recipe. As I said I am busy, busy, busy, I made the recipe Thursday, rather than Wednesday, as I didn’t make it to the grocery store until Wednesday…and I did not make it to Zumba. However, it was perfect for Thursday, as I worked 12 hours and came home to dinner almost completely ready.
My second review of the recipe: still love it. It’s becoming one of my favorites. It takes a good bit of time for all the prep work (peeling and chopping the veggies), but it’s worth it (especially, as I said in my original post, there are no Thai restaurants nearby, and while this may not be considered “authentic”, it’s better than nothing).
This dish has very specific flavors and everything is all mixed together – so I have no tips for repurposing. At my house, though, we would gladly eat this for lunch two more times to use all 6 servings.
What’s in your slow cooker this week?
