Great Easy Recipes

Our lives as a softball family has begun!!! Don't get me wrong we are ALL loving it!!! Laura Beth, the child who did NOT want to play softball at all, is loving the sport and playing the game. Carter, being the baseball fanatic he is, thinks he is needed at each practice and scrimmage. We usually go to everything as a family so Carter can learn the game before he plays and just to wear him out!!!! However, our days of 2 nights at the ball field have begun!! I do not want to be the mom who runs through the drive through for supper on those nights. I have struggled with finding things that would be good meals and maybe even last for another night. Thanks to Richard, Amy and some of their cookbooks I got a hold of over Christmas, I have found 2 great recipes I would love to share with you!!!

Meal-on-the-Run Pork Loin

3. 5 pound pork loin
5 oz. soy sauce
1/4 c. light brown sugar
1/2 c. red cooking wine
1 T. lemon juice
1 t. worch. (I can't spell) sauce
1 1/2 c. water

Trim fat off pork loin. If you want to freeze it, put the pork loin in a bag with all the ingredients and seal. Thaw it overnight in the refrigerator. Place in the crock pot on low for 6-8 hours. Shred or slice when done and return to sauce. If sliced, you can eat it with other sides and eat the leftovers on buns.

Taco Chicken

4-6 chicken breasts
1 can Rotel
1 packet taco seasoning

If you want to freeze it, place all ingredients in a bag and freeze. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator. Place in crock pot when thawed. Cook on low for 4-6 hours. Cut up and put back in sauce. You can use the cut up chicken with cheese, salsa, and black beans over tortilla chips to make chicken nachos. Put everything in the oven at 350 degrees until cheese is melted. You can also add the cut up chicken and add it to a salad with cheese and sour cream. This is how we had it the other night. Then Damon used the leftover chicken for nachos yesterday for lunch.

My all time favorite recipe is one that you gave me for chicken enchiladas. It is one of the only things I can make. I do have one other good one that I need to share with you, and since I make it you know it is easy.

Chicken Salad Puffs
Boil 4-5 pieces of boneless chicken breasts.

Finely chop chicken ( I use the Pampered Chef food chopper thing! Can you tell I am no cook?)

Add 8oz of softened cream cheese (you may need a little more; just stir it into the chicken)

You may want to add mushrooms and onions; my friend does, but the only other thing I add is salt and pepper)

Spoon the mixture into a crescent roll square (basically don't tear cresent rolls apart into triangles; leave two together to form a square). Add two spoonfuls at the most and fold cresent roll up around it. Pinch top of cresent rolls to seal.

Follow directions on crescent roll package for baking! Voila! They're great and easy.
