I am still a week behind on this challenge, but I am determined to catch up next week.
Week 8 is more of a cooking technique/recipe. I had a half a package of refrigerated tortellini in the freezer. I wanted to serve it for supper one night, but I needed a hands off approach. I used this recipe for crockpot tortellini. My homemade marinara was already full of garlic, basil, and vegetables so I left the extras out. It was super easy, and we ate this better than the way I had cooked it previously.
Week 9 is another crockpot recipe. I made Slow Cooker Chicken Bahn Mi from 100 Days of Real Food. I was surprised that W liked it as much as he did. The onions stirred in well with the chicken and were not overpowering at all. We used homemade hamburger buns. I had pickled veggies on mine, but W did not. I would probably use some fresh ginger next time instead of the powdered. I will make this again especially during the summer. It is a good sandwich option for busy days.
It was late both evenings and neither dish was particularly photogenic. I will try to do better next week on pictures.
