Catch Up

We have had lots of good food recently, and I will have to link to them because I didn't take pictures darn it!  Anyway, there were some good ones.  We have made it through the holidays, moving and selling one house, buying and moving into our new house, guests, traveling, and my pregnancy.  I'm feeling better, so I'm cooking again, hooray! 
Last night we had Creamy Artichoke Chicken from the cookbook 365 Days of Slow Cooking.  Here is a link to the blog, and I'll post the recipe here for since I changed it so much.  This is what I made.

4 chicken thighs, skinless, seasoned with salt and pepper
2 T tapioca
2 c chicken broth
Italian Spices to taste
6 oz marinated artichoke hearts, drained

Cook on low 3-5 hours, then add

1/2 c tomatoes (I used drained canned tomatoes because I had already used my other tomatoes and I forgot about it...sigh)
1 c mozzarella cheese
1/2 c cream

Cook for 1/2 hour, then serve over pasta.

My kids and I really liked this, Aaron thought it was flavorless.  Anyway, it's fast and easy, and delicious.

We had sweet potatoes in the crockpot for Christmas, the recipe is found here, and I added a little more butter and added pineapple juice rather than orange juice.  These are my favorite sweet potatoes I've ever had, really quite good, and they went over well at Christmas dinner with Aaron's family.

I'll post more later this week.

  1. When I looked at the web site for the sweet potatoes and saw marshmallows, I said, no. Do I have to add the tomatoes and cream on the chicken artichoke? It sounded so good until then. Sure love you. Mom
