What’s for dinner?

13 12 2012

One of the biggest joys of working from home has turned out to be the fun I’m having making home-cooked meals!  Since I normally work right up until dinner time, I prefer to do my “cooking” in the morning.  And, since I actually don’t have much patience for watching pots bubble, I’m all about the Crock Pot!  I’ll post my favorites here as they develop, but I normally do things that are really basic – like, two ingredients basic!!  Our standards on any given week are: (1) thick cut pork chops in the crock pot with Lawry’s Tuscan Sun Dried Tomato marinade, spooned over rice; (2) thick cut steak filets in the crock pot with Lawry’s Steak and Chop marinade, with baked potatoes; (3) thick cut pork chops in the crock pot with Lawry’s Mesquite marinade, shredded and topped with KC Masterpiece BBQ sauce on sandwiches; (4) chicken breast in the crock pot with 1 pkg taco mix and a jar of Pace picante sauce, cooked and shredded for chicken tacos; and (5) Papa Murphy’s pizza – I don’t like delivery pizza because I like to actually see the ingredients go on.  We normally don’t eat out (allergies and MSG sensitivity) and I enjoy the challenge of replicating favorite meals at home 🙂
