I've decided to try something really challenging this week......not for you, for me, don't worry! I'm taking two of my favorite recipes and turning them (hopefully successfully) into Crock Pot recipes we all can use! These two recipes are both favorites of my husbands and the poor guy hardly ever gets to eat them because I just don't have time. I know you're just dying to know what these two recipes are, so here you go.....
The first recipe I'll attempt this week in the crock pot is Mjadra. I know what you're thinking.....Mjadahwat?!! This is a Lebanese dish pronounced Muh jed drah. It has lentils, rice, and onions in it. It is known as a "poor man's dish" because it is a super cheap and healthy dish to make, it's filled with protein and it makes a lot! I promise, if you keep an open mind, you're going to love this as much my family does.
The second recipe I'm inventing into a crock pot recipe is my father-in-law's Bean and Ham Soup. He makes the most delicious Bean and Ham soup you've ever tasted, so I'm hoping to make this recipe accessible to all of you through the crock pot! Let's hope this turns out and I can make my father-in-law proud! (And my husband happy!)
The third recipe I'm going to make this week is Parsley Chicken, which is already a crock pot recipe. I've made it before and I already know it's going to be delicious! So, at the very least, you will have at least ONE tasty and delicious successful meal to look forward to this week if the others don't work out so well! LOL
Here's my Menu for the week: (The days I make them sometimes change throughout the week as life happens!)
Monday: Mjadra served with Pita Bread
Tuesday: Parsley Chicken
Thursday: Bean and Ham Soup
I hope to bring you three delicious meals this week. I will continue to post pictures of each meal so you know what the end product should look like. If you ever have any questions, or comments on anything, please leave me some feedback! I'm always happy to hear it!
Happy Crock-Potting this week!
