I deviated from last weeks menu just a little bit. I ended up making several of my daughters favorite meals. She left yesterday to move out of state for grad school. She’s been home since March, when her college moved to online because of the virus. That’s the longest she’s been home since her sophomore year of college. Man, I’m going to miss her!
One of the dishes she requested was cheeseburger macaroni. Made with homemade mac and cheese. Some like to put ketchup on it. I’m in the ketchup club. lol
It’s always a good morning when you get a double yoke egg!
Since we had such a busy schedule, with getting her packed, getting her car in the shop to be checked out, and trying to watch as many episodes of Bones together as we could, I needed easy meals.
The day her car was in the shop and I had to drive to town multiple times, I made the Chicken Alfredo that she requested.
I started the night before by grilling the chicken when make burgers that night for supper. I squeezed making pasta and alfredo sauce in between trips to town. I then put the chicken in the bottom of the slow cooker. Topped it with the hot spaghetti and hot Alfredo sauce. And turned it on warm so it’d be ready for dinner.
Doesn’t look particularly appetizing sitting in the slow cooker, does it? When I served it, it was perfect, though!
I dished out the spaghetti and sauce first, then I was down to the chicken and placed it on top.
While I didn’t cook the whole thing in the slow cooker, I used the slow cooker to help me get dinner on the table in a timely manner.
And that’s what having kitchen helpers, like the slow cooker, is all about!
What’s your favorite kitchen helper?
Now…. to answer the question that I get asked about a hundred times a day……….What’s For Dinner?
Sunday – soup & sandwich day – Cheeseburgers with all the fixings
Monday – chicken or turkey – Baked chicken, baked potatoes, zucchini
Tuesday – pizza/pasta – spaghetti with meat sauce, green beans
Thursday – pork or chicken – Chicken Pasta Salad
Friday – Quick & Easy – Leftovers this week, as I think there will be plenty
