I’m bound and determined to cook original meals for as long as I can. And it’s kind of fun.
Last week I cooked some chicken in the crock pot. I got the idea from a former roommate on her site – A Charmed Life: Roasted Herbed Chicken with Lemon Slow Cooker Recipe From Crock-Pot. I used five chicken breasts and sliced the lemon and put them on top of the chicken. I used three potatoes because that’s all we had. And then since I don’t like green beans (icky texture and my dad says they are poisoned), I put green onions in it. I seasoned it with pepper, garlic, and some chicken bouillon. It was super yummy.
Last night I made homemade pizza. We used the bread stick recipe I got from another former roommate many many years ago. We put garlic powder, basil, and oregano in the dough. The recipe made enough to make a cookie sheet sized pizza. Then we topped it with tomato sauce, salami, Canadian bacon, peperoni, pineapple, tomato slices, and lots of cheese. It was super super yummy!
Both of them made great leftovers for our lunches too.
