Chicken Philly Sandwiches in the Slow Cooker


This is one of those “throw it all in the crockpot” recipes that I love.  I made it on a busy day last week or the week before.

Actually, I’m not sure exactly when I made it.  Soccer season is in high gear right now, and schedules are a bit like moving targets.  We’ve packed more lunch meat sandwiches to be eaten on the field than I care to admit.

I don’t even have an ingredient photo for this.  I could have sworn that I snapped one, but I can’t find it on my camera.  The ingredients are all common though, with the possible exception of marinated artichoke hearts.

I was a little afraid my kids would balk at the artichokes, but they didn’t.  After it all cooked and we put it on sandwiches under melted cheese, they didn’t notice the ‘chokes.

Notice the big air pocket holes in the buns?  I cheaped out in the bread section.  Instead of buying hoagie rolls, I saved $1 and bought these strange rolls.  Every one of them had a giant hole in it.  They tasted good, but it made for strange looking sandwiches.

Turkey Italian Sausage and Tortellini Salad


It’s not often that you can satisfy the pasta lovers, meat eaters and veggie people all with one dish.  That’s what happened when I served this meal though.  The recipe is adapted from a cookbook that my sister-in-law gave me.  She is married to a career army man.  When they were stationed in Schweinfurt, Germany (2007) she helped put together a cookbook with recipes from the families of those serving with the Vanguards 18th Infantry Regiment. That book is full of wonderful recipes, including this one.

Tomato and Artichoke Heart Salad


A plate full of this and some bread along side would make an excellent dinner.  I think this might be my favorite way to eat summer tomatoes.  It’s definitely in the top 59 ways to eat them 😉  We had this salad with Cheese Stuffed Zucchini Boats.  It makes for a fabulous combination.  This recipe also comes from the New Recipes from Moosewood Restaurant cookbook.
