crock pot for the last time this week. I cooked, served, and cleaned up all four dishes, and they were all delicious.
I am seriously considering my crock pot for all of my cooking. It made life so easy this week. Plus, I have a gadzillion more recipes to try sent in by all of you.
Just wanted to share my results on the last two recipes.
Thursday, we enjoyed:
Chicken Lasagna by Camille Cordero
(who knew you could make lasagna in a crock pot, but it really worked)
I have never had Chicken Lasagna before so this was really fun.
How Easy? 7
This was a little bit more time consuming because you had to layer everything, but all in all I think it only took me about 25 minutes to put together, and then was nothing more to do.
All of the flavors went well together. I wonder how this would taste with some Alfredo sauce in it. Stella loved it.
This didn't stay together all that well, or I am just a dork when it comes to serving it. The spinach however gave it a pretty color.
Clean Up? 9
This was easy to clean up. I used a crock pot liner so all I had to do was pull it out and dump the leftovers in a container. There was no other sides to clean up.
This meal cost around $11.00, but it made a lot.
Chicken Cordon Bleu by Yasemin Rice
We had this dish tonight. It was great to throw it in before church, and have a meal when we got home.
I think Yasemin was at an advantage because Sunday dinner always tastes so good. After 3 hours of church everything tastes better.

This took some time to coat all the breasts and wrap them up. Next time, I am just going to add the seasonings to the sauce. I also might try using breaded chicken tenders.
This was great. The flavors go so well together. My hubby had seconds and he rarely does that.
It looked so beautiful served over the rice. The ham gave the dish a nice punch of color.
Clean up? 8
Fairly simple to clean up. You still have the rice pan, and whatever you cook the veggies in to clean up. All in all very simple.
This meal cost about $13 to make. We have enough leftovers for one meal for Jonathan and myself.
I will share the winner tomorrow so stay tuned.
