I had a BRILLIANT idea for Easter. I was going to make my first turkey (breast)!!I shopped for just the right size turkey breast the week of Easter, had it all ready to go… and in the spirit of silly mistakes made in the kitchen, I realized WAY LATE in the game, that the turkey breast I had bought…. was fully cooked. OMG!
I had a crockpot malfunction this week. I can’t even believe it.Let’s think about this… a crockpot is PRETTY MUCH the easiest tool to cook with, and I jacked it up. How? Well, if you forget to add all the ingredients (specifically the liquids), you come home to a burned up mess. Ugh. Thankfully not a burned up home, but definitely a bit of “blackened” meat. GROSS!
I often struggle with using my crockpot.Not because it’s hard to use, but because I hate to leave something cooking in my house while I am at work. Most days, I’m gone about 12 hours… and that just seems too long to leave a crockpot unattended.
On Sunday, it happened. It’s officially fall.To celebrate the change of season, I filled my crockpot with the most delicious ingredients. That’s another thing I love about fall… crockpot cooking. That amazing, slow cooked goodness that is warm and satisfying as the weather gets cold… Yum!
Today’s recipe is one of those combine and forget type of recipes that I absolutely love.Anytime I have a chance to use my crockpot, I jump at it. And, when Corrie Anne was talking about her salsa chicken on Instagram last week, it got me thinking.
Pinterest… Oh, Pinterest….There are so many tasty looking foods on Pinterest these days… over and over, I find myself pinning recipes that I’m dying to make. Considering that my fellow pinners are sharing tons of these recipes with me daily, it’s really hard to keep up.
