Anyone want to share a good one?

We attended our Thanksgiving Luncheon on Monday for our RL playgroup. It was potluck. One of the girls made her 'Crock Pot Dressing'.

It was go good that this year I am ditching my Mammaw's recipe (they are very similar- only you can keep adding broth in the crock pot to keep it moist...plus your oven is free for turkeys and pies).

Anyway- here ya go:

Crock Pot Dressing:
Ingredients:
1 pan of cornbread ( I usually make 2 pie pans)
6-8 slices of bread, toasted
4 eggs
1 onion, chopped
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/4 cup celery (I don't measure this I just cut up a few stalks)
2 cans cream of chicken soup
2 cans chicken broth, (you'll need more to keep adding through out the cook time to keep it moist)
1 tsp. sage (you can adjust this to your taste)
1 tsp. poultry seasoning (keep in mind this also has sage in it)
2 TBSP. butter or margarine
2-3 chicken breast (these can be left out, it taste just as good without them, I usually only use them if I am making the dressing as a meal and not using it at Thanksgiving or Christmas.)
(I plan to add 4 chopped boiled eggs too- but I love boiled eggs.)

Boil Chicken in chicken broth. Mix together all ingredients listed above in crock pot. Add chicken last. Cook on low 6 hrs or high 4 hrs. Stirring occasionally to keep it from sticking and adding broth to keep it juicy. It may not need to cook the full 6 or 4 hrs.

    I thought I would add our playdough recipes~

    *Cornstarch Clay*
    1 cup cornstarch

    2 cups salt

    1 1/3 cups cold water

    Put salt and 2/3 cup water in pan and bring to a boil. Mix cornstarch with 2/3 cup water and mix well. Blend 2 mixtures together and knead into clay. The dough has to be heated as it is combined to set. Makes about 3 cups. This clay can be air dried and then painted. Store unused clay in airtight container in the fridge.

    *Peanut Butter Dough*
    1 cup creamy peanut butter

    1/4 cup honey

    1 cup instant nonfat dry milk*

    Mix together until smooth. *For milk allergies, you may substitute flour for the instant nonfat dry milk. Note that some students may have peanut allergies. See the column at right for more info.

    *Earth Friendly Play Dough*
    1 cup flour (not self-rising)

    1/2 cup salt

    1 cup water

    1 tablespoon vegetable oil

    1-1/2 teaspoons cream of tartar

    Mix in saucepan over low heat. (It does not have to heat long.) Dough is ready when it rolls into a ball. Keep dough fresh in an airtight container. If you need to make different colors, add food coloring while mixing over heat.

    These ones where added by sweetsun~

    Regular Play Dough:

    1 c. flour
    1/2 c. salt
    1 TBSP cooking oil
    2 tsp. cream of tartar

    Mix all ingredients together. Cook in medium heat (350*) electric skillet.

    'sweet salsa chicken' ... it was goooood! Super easy, too ... take a jar of salsa, a jar of apricot jam or preserves, an envelope of taco seasoning & mix well. Dump in 1 1/2 to 2 pounds of chicken breasts or tenders, stir to coat. Dump into a baking dish & bake at 350° for about 1/2 hour. Sooo yummy!
