Recipe Swap?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
The other thread with helpful tips got me wondering about helpful recipes. I could really use some good crockpot recipes but any recipes are welcome! I know it could really help others out as well.

I've been eating fast food and other crap just because its quick and easy. Bleh.

I love this curry recipe:

http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Indian-...-I/Detail.aspx

I always double it but use 3 cans of tomatoes. Also I shred the chicken. If you are looking for quick you can get one of those roasted chickens at the store and use the meat from that. Also I add potatoes and peas.

You can search for recipes by ingrediants you want and don't want. Also, if you sign up (free) you can save the recipies you like and have it generate shopping lists for you.

Chicken drumette pieces
2 cans of chicken broth (or homemade broth)
1 can of chicken gravy
half a cup of flour and water (for thickening)


Put into a slow cooker. Wait for chicken to fall off bones (usually 4-5 hours later). Add egg noodles and frozen veggies. Turn low and let cook for 1.5 hours. Stir occassionally to make sure all noodles are cooked. Remove from heat (to ensure noodles don't overcook) and serve.

In the summer I love to keep in the fridge:

romaine lettuce chopped up- or you can buy it in small pieces in the bag
shredded carrots (i buy them shredded already)
cut up pepper
feta cheese crumbles
kalamata olives
cut up cucumbers

throw it all together and slice a tomato in and voila, greek salad

sometimes I get one of those rotisseri chickens too and we shred it up and keep it in the fridge for sandwiches, or to throw on salad or whatever

and pitas with hummus are a go-to for us as well!

Put a pork tenderloin or shoulder (much cheaper!) in the crockpot and cover with root beer....you could really use any liquid, I bet apple juice would be great too. Put on low all day, probably 6 or 8 hours or until meat is falling off the bone. (It's hard to get out as the meat does really just slide off!) Shred it up and add BBQ sauce. Put it on some yummy rolls and eat it up!

It'll make a lot, so it'll be lunch and a few meals for ya!

Great suggestion! I'll have to try that.
