Monday: CrockPot Thai Chicken Curry
First time making this. I liked it all right, but it won’t enter the regular rotation.
Changes: 1) Didn’t add brown sugar or eggplant; 2) I did add the optional fish sauce. Served with brown rice.
Changes: 1) Used a 2-lb pork tenderloin; 2) Used salt, pepper, and garlic powder to season the pork; 3) Used 8-oz can tomato sauce; 4) Used tamari instead of soy sauce; 5) Didn’t add sugar; 6) Whisked sauce ingredients rather than using food processor.
Wednesday: CrockPot Pumpkin Turkey Chili
Thursday: Spicy Chili Cornbread Casserole
I got the idea for this recipe from the link above, but I used leftover chili from the day before rather than making their version.
I also used regular cornmeal (not instant polenta), and cheddar for the cheese (rather than a combination of cheddar and Parmesan).
Verdict: It was decent, but also not something I’d add to my regular rotation.
Saturday: Penne with Sausage in Tomato Cream Sauce
I made a few changes this time: 1) Used 12 oz mushrooms; 2) Used a combination of homemade chicken stock and half & half (rather than a full cup of half & half).
Sunday: CrockPot Minestrone Soup
Changes: 1) Doubled the recipe; 3) Used brown rice noodles; 2) Served with shredded cheddar instead of Parmesan.
