Daily Bread Week 3

YIKES! I am getting this out a little late! For those of you playing along I do apologize!

I have to give elle bee her props for an excellent tasting and super easy crock pot recipe!!! The lasagna was a huge hit! My only regret was not grating the cheese in the morning when I had the time. I thought to myself -I will just grate it fresh at dinner time and it will be delicious and wonderful and my family will say "Wow Mom, this cheese has just been grated, thank you for putting such love and care in to everything you do!" Then the afternoon came and it was getting crazy and a whirlwind of homework, finding soccer clothes and crying babies hit and I ended up grating cheese with a toddler in one hand and the other one hanging from my leg....I think it ended up taking me 20 minutes to grate the cheese!!! BUT it was all worth it......

just imagine a nice green salad and a slice of garlic bread beside it!

Ok, here is this weeks is a little light, we have other engagements this week....

French Dip Sandwiches
Your basic put the roast in the crock pot with a package of onion soup mix and beef broth. Cook all day and put it on toasted sourdough rolls. I will be adding some Swiss cheese and mushrooms to mine but my kids will have theirs plain. I will serve it with fries and apple slices.

Chicken Piccata
There are a lot of recipes out there...I am going to put the chicken in the crock pot, dump a cup of white wine on top, a can of chicken broth, some lemon juice (maybe a 1/4 C) and some capers. Turn it on and walk away.

Wedding soup
I like this one... I will make the meat balls in the morning, cook them up and then put it all in the crock pot.

Ok, happy cooking!


  1. Yay!! I'm so glad you liked it!! The french dip sandwiches sound gooooood! If I can get my crew to the grocery store in the morning, I'm going to make those.

  2. man, those french dipped sandwiches really do sound good... not feeling like it falls under a "vegetarian" diet! LOL! Maybe I'll make them next month! :o)


say what?
