Week starting Oct. 10, 2016


Balsamic Pot Roast. Prepared and cooked in crock pot Sunday evening. Used more carrots than recipe (bag &  a half). Added in celery. Cut veggies in large chunks and added them in at the beginning instead of adding in later and switching heat to high. Cooked about 2 hrs longer than listed on low.



Chipotle Chicken and Green Beans. One of my favorites…because it’s easy. Wanted to use entire large package of chicken (3 lbs), so I tripled the recipe except oil (used just a bit more than normal amount). Used olive oil instead of avocado oil (will buy some eventually). Picture on left is when I made it with home grown green beans vs picture on right made with store bought beans last night. Fresh tomato is a nice addition.
