I just wanted to share a super easy, super delicious recipe with you today.
A break from all the 'mind talk'.
I love my crock pot.
I want to marry it.
It gives me plenty of time to sit and do nothing for 10 minutes.
(Which was SO much easier today!)
I'd like to get a new one - a pretty, shiny one with a digital display.
Instead I have one with ivy leaves all over it, a clear indication that I was a new bride in the 1980's.
I'm on a bit of a mission to use it as often as possible and make healthy, tasty meals.
Last night's mission was a bit of a fail - chicken breasts, black beans and salsa, cooked on
low all day.
It was edible, but a bit paste like.
I just had a moment, and it spurred this blog post. I spent the morning perusing at JoAnn Fabrics -I have an idea for some felted embroidery projects and I needed supplies - I just came in the back door - the house was quiet and in order, and I could smell dinner in the crock pot.
Now, I don't know about you - but on a happy scale of one to ten - that's pert near a 9.5.
Let me know if you try it - and how you like it.
I kinda made it up.
Now, of course there are other recipes on line that sound decadent and wonderful, but they are full of the devil dairy - which I'm allergic too, and if I indulge I forget to wear a bra, comb my hair and look like I'm ready for the maternity ward. This recipe helps me fit in my size 8 jeans, and feel like a million bucks.
If you have any tweaks or additions - let me know!
Crock Pot Chicken Florentine
1 lb of chicken breasts, boneless, skinless

32 oz jar of Spaghetti Sauce
Liberally sprinkle garlic salt on the chicken breasts.
Place in bottom of crock pot.
Slice peppers and onions and place on top of chicken.
Dump spinach on top of chicken, peppers and onions.
Pour spaghetti sauce over the whole deal.

Come back in 8 hours and eat.
I make gluten free brown rice pasta to go with this - and serve it over that.
