I’m finally able to take a moment and post about the delicious dinner I made on Tuesday. Tuesday marked our one month of marriage- wow, time sure does fly by- and it’s been nothing but wonderful!!
I decided to try cooking in the crock pot [my first time!].
My good friend Corianne, [she’s an amazing writer and fabulous recipe finder, she’s also prego with her first little one! Check her out here——> Band Of Burtons ] suggested I try this mac & cheese recipe she had recently made and as we both have an affinity for cheese, she knew I wouldn’t resist this recipe!
You can find the original recipe here at this blog::: Crock Pot Mac & Cheese
Corianne suggested that I add some cayenne pepper, extra salt & Parmesan cheese. I did just that [I also added a bit more cheese, because let’s face it- I.LOVE.CHEESE!]
This dish cooked on low in about 2.5 hours- I mixed it as I went. It was a very delicious first crock pot recipe!
For the main course I decided to revamp my Dijon Chicken recipe which can be found here:: Dijon Chicken
The things that I changed were: I added mozzarella to the top and sliced almonds. These little changes added so much to the chicken. The almond crunch was a nice change to the breaded I usually put on and next time I’d probably keep the Parmesan rather than use mozzarella.
I also put together cheese croissants and a veggie salad- peppers, tomatoes, almonds, spinach and lettuce.
All in all the dinner was perfect-o! Everything turned out delicious and everything was a hit. It’s been an amazing month of marriage and I’m so blessed with so many wonderful people and opportunities in my life!
Have a fabulous Thursday!
