I'm stealing, but only because it all looks yummy!!

Ahhh, comfort food. As the weather turns colder, {and I get more accustomed to using the crock pot} I love reading other peoples' ideas for dinner. 

With 4 kids, I have to be pretty easy going with my meal ideas. Nothing too CRAZY or anything. 
And they have to be easy. Like EASY with a capital E!!!!!

So, I stumbled upon the following recipes from a woman whose blog I follow for home decor/DIY ideas. Turns out she has some great recipe ideas too - SCORE~!

Take a look! I think I'll try one of these this weekend or next week...

CROCK POT CHICKEN AND DUMPLINGS



4-6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 tablespoons butter 
2 cans cream of chicken soup 
1 can chicken broth 
1 onion diced (I used half of one) 
1 tablespoon dried parsley 
4 grands flaky refrigerator biscuits (I used five)

Put the chicken, butter, cream of chicken, chicken broth, parsley and onions in the crock pot and cook on high for four to six hours. 
As the chicken cooks and gets tender, break it up with a spoon or fork, whatever.
Get your biscuits and cut them into nine pieces. Stir into chicken mixture and cook for another hour.
(The recipe says to cook for 30 minutes but make sure before turning off the crock pot). 
1 hour may be needed. 

CROCK POT MACARONI AND CHEESE


1/2 pound elbow macaroni 


4 cups shredded Cheddar cheese, finely shredded, divided 
1 (12 fluid ounce) can evaporated milk 
1 1/2 cups milk 
1 egg 
1 teaspoon salt 
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper 
Dash of Worcestershire sauce


Spray the crock pot well with cooking spray. This cheesy goodness will stick otherwise. 
Mix the egg, fresh milk, evaporated milk, and Worcestershire together in a large bowl. Mix in the uncooked macaroni and three cups of shredded cheese. Pour into the crock pot and sprinkle the remaining cheese on top.
Cook on low for five to six hours. Do not stir or remove lid while cooking.
Cook for 4 hours. 

ENJOY!
