Overall I do have to say this was a great week of crockpotting! Don’t you agree? I went into this week with high hopes do to my love of the crockpot and due to the fact that I have already tried a couple of recipes from the blog A Year of Slow Cooking (written by Stephanie O’Dea) and have had great success!
A crockpot/slow cooker is a must in every kitchen. The possibliies for this magical little machine are endless. Seriously using a crockpot only requires a few minutes a week of prep time and planning and you can have full sit down family meals no matter how busy a day you are having!
These chicken lettuce wraps were the perfect meal for a hot summer day! The chicken is cooked to tender, flavorful perfection in the crockpot and and then wrapped in crisp lettuce. A light satisfying dinner, that we even ate again tonight!
I was a little weary of cooking fish in the crockpot, but I decided to go ahead and try this Foil Packet Tilapia. Let’s just say it was good but not my favorite; that I will probably make it again, but not anytime soon.
