Time to move on???

I tried another crock pot recipe today & it was delicious!! My friend Katie sent me this one & the recipe was cleverly titled "Chicken". I actually remembered to take a picture.
Here's the recipe:

1 Pkg. Onion Soup Mix
1 1/2 Cup Milk
2 Cans Cream of Mushroom Soup
1 Cup White Rice
6 Chicken Breasts (I only used 4)
6 tbsp Butter ( I used less than 4, who needs all that butter??)
1 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Pepper (I didn't use salt or pepper, I used some McCormick garlic herb seasoning)
1/2 Cup Parmesan Cheese (Walmart didn't have Parmesan so I used an Italian blend)

Put onion soup mix, milk, mushroom soup & rice in a bowl & mix it all together.
Grease crock pot
Put chicken in crock pot & butter it
Pour mixture over the top. Add salt, pepper or whatever seasoning you use, then cheese on top
Cook on low 8-10 hours

I made green beans to go with it & it was delicious if I do say so myself. Dean liked it too! I'm thinking since I actually made some changes to the recipe & it turned out good maybe it's time for me to move on to cooking in something other than a crock pot?? I probably won't but maybe I could.

Speaking of food. I've jumped on the Ground Flaxseed Meal bandwagon. All the healthy people blogs I read rave over this stuff. Apparently, it's super healthy & has all sorts of vitamins & stuff that you need. I added it to my chocolate milk. I couldn't really taste it except for some little grains which was no biggie. I think it will be great in oatmeal which is what I see a lot of people put it in. I got mine at Whole Foods & it was with the vitamins. That's the last place I would've looked. I never would've found it without help.

I went to Yoglates yesterday & today. Tomorrow will be my second run of the week. It should be interesting because a cold front came through today & it's going to be in the high 40's in the morning.  Wish me luck!!



  1. That looks so yummy! Thanks for the recipe. I'm going to try it.

  2. That looks great! I will try it, too!
    I am going to pick up some ground flax and add that to my list - might as well. I have a post forth-coming on all of my other initiatives. Been reading alot about Kefir too. Have you tried it?

  3. I'm going to have to try that crockpot chicken. Sounds yummy and easy. Flax seed... have a box at the house, but never opened it.

  4. The chicken dish looks great. Thanks for the recipe, Traci. It came in a timely manner too cause I can prepare it tomorrow since my friends and I are having a small tea party here so I won't have time to cook....Christine

  5. Mmmmmm! that recipe sound so good! We use Flaxseed in smoothies around here!
