I've finished the top half of Jake's christening outfit, and will post photos soon. And much to Rod's delight, I've been doing something for dinner most nights. There have been a lot of crock pot meals, but that's why we bought the crock pot trio. Yesterday I tried my own version of two recipes. Both were for apricot chicken, but had varied ingredients. I put my chicken tenders in the crock pot. Then I added one envelope of french onion soup mix on top of the chicken. The next layer was 1/2 a jar of pineapple apricot preserves, with a final layer of Marzetti's honey mustard salad dressing. It was delicious. We had mashed potato patties, and the gravy was really good on them. I think it would be equally yummy on pasta of some kind.
I guess I'm still flexible to change my ways. See, you can teach an old dog new tricks.
