    nakabi! - Good to see you back on here! I hope you had enough filling left for the Lemon meringue pie! :-)

    Dr D - I usually spray the slow cooker with non-stick spray. Then slice 1 - 2 onions & line bottom of the slow cooker with them. Then add carrots, potatoes (if using them). Then season the meat on both sides with pepper and garlic powder. Then put meat on the veggies in slow cooker. Then top with whatever sauce I am using (BBQ, marinade, teriyaki, beef broth). Then I usually top with A LOT of sliced or quartered mushrooms! Then cook on low for 5 to 6 hours until it falls apart.

    Like Kathy S., when I want stroganoff, I use beef broth while the meat cooks and then 30 minutes before it is done, I make a slurry with flour, sour cream and some of the broth from the slow cooker. I mix it well. Take the meat out of the slow cooker, mix the slurry into the slow cooker and then pull apart the meat. Put the meat back and cook on high for 30 min, to thicken. Hope that helps! :-)

    First day back from the beach. DH has a meeting until around 9:00 tonight so I'm using some leftover rice, chicken, and veggies to make a chicken fried rice for when he gets home. I also have some salad to round it out.

    Hey Nakabi good to see You. So here is my review of the cookies. The TASTE is amazing....not too overwhelming with the banana flavor, not too much sugar. That's the good part......the bad part I would not call these cookies. They are more like cakes. Rae actually called them mini pancakes lol. I am getting ready to try to put them in my muffin tin and I'll update y'all on how they come out. Not sure what I did wrong. I used self rising flour and followed the steps to a T including chilling the batter in the fridge for 30 mins. When I post the update to how the muffins came out I'll post the link in case anyone wants to try them. Again the TASTE is amazing.....just wouldn't consider it a cookie.

    Dr. D. I slice potatoes and carrots (and any other veggies you like i.e., mushrooms, peppers, etc.) and put in crockpot. Then I cover with water or chicken and/or beef broth and add seasonings (Mrs. Dash garlic and herb is what I like) place london broil on top and add more Mrs. Dash on the roast and then turn on high for 4-5 hours or low 7-8 hours. Roast just falls apart. I take roast and veggies out. Add a slurry of water and flour to thicken and stir in the broth right in the crockpot. There you have a one dish dinner. If you line the crockpot with liner virtually no cleanup. Easy peasy.

    I am eating the leftovers as I type.

    t me know how those cookies are.
    Dr D- my fave way to do a London broil is too easy it's embarrassing. Place broil in crockpot, open can of sliced jalepenos, dump over meat, and cook on low for 8 hours. It will literally fall apart and is not as spicy like you might think it would be. I usually take out the meat and then make an au jui or make a gravy to serve on top of mashed potatoes.

  • nakabi Apr 26, 4:19 p.m.

    Wow, these meals sound good!
    Raesmom-let me know how those cookies are.

    Tonight it's leftover smoked ribs, mashed potatoes, green beans, and Caesar salad. Lemon meringue pie for dessert if I can keep Mr. Nichols and the Littles out of the filling:-)

    RAESMOM1612 - There's actually a PDQ in Cary across from Publix which is near my house. It is right next to Papa John's so will be super convenient. I have never eaten there so I can give a review after I go if anyone is interested :) BTW, the pizza and cheese sticks came to $8.88 which will feed the girls tonight AND tomorrow. Combined with coupon for the chicken that will be 5 meals for less than $10 :)

    Tonight we are having fajitas leftover from last week. I accidentally made way too much last week. So steak fajitas with onions, peppers, and mushrooms and all I have to do is reheat and serve! That's my kind of night :-) Sides of rice, beans, and fresh grapes and strawberries.
