Weekend Cooking 4/21

Each weekend, Beth Fish Reads hosts Weekend Cooking.  This is perfect for me since I love food and cooking almost as much as I love books!

Not a lot of imaginative cooking this week. My husband was out of town for 8 days, so I went with super-easy, quick, few-dishes-to-clean sort of meals. We had steaks and baked potatoes, spaghetti with meat sauce, chili-covered baked potatoes, and take-out Chinese when things really got busy!

With hubby back home this weekend, I have resumed cooking but still keeping it simple. Last night I made Chicken with Paprika and Potatoes for the three of us. It is a fairly easy, tasty meal, and good for weeknights. It was perfect last night because we had a very COLD Saturday here.

Tonight, I am going for a super-easy one: White Chili made in the crockpot. I use the ingredient list in the linked recipe, but I just throw everything in the crockpot (don't even cut up the chicken breasts), cook it on Low for about 6 hours, shred the chicken, and voila! Dinner is served. I'll make cornbread to go with it. Then, we'll have leftovers for tomorrow, too.

Hope you are enjoying your food and cooking this week!


  1. I really like white chile, so I plan to click on over and check out the recipe. Easy meals are sometimes the way to go. This has been such a stressful week for everyone.

  2. I love white chili too, I'm going to checkout your recipe.

  3. That's the kind of slow cooker recipe I like!

  4. I needed an easy crockpot recipe for today -- you saved me. Thanks!

  5. I adore paprika! I am definitely making that one!

  6. I love it when it is all simple and there are leftovers!!
    That is how I eat all week for lunch at work.

    Me, too! I eat leftovers for lunch all week, especially now that my oldest son is at college and we only have 3 for dinner instead of 4.


  8. Sue, love the sound of this easy but tasty dish. cheers
