Crock Pot Adventures Up-Date

So last week was my crock pot week and I must say it was a success!! Our favorite was the Rosemary Chicken with white beans, served over brown rice. If you want the recipe let me know. It's also very healthy. The Swiss Chicken was really rich and creamy. The Clam Chowder was fattening and delicious. The meat loaf had the most amazing flavor ever, but it wouldn't get hard and stay together, so I ended up putting in a loaf pan in the oven which defeated the purpose. I wouldn't make that one again in the crock pot, although I will make it in the oven because the flavor was amazing. The swiss chicken is a savory dish and rich like I said, and I'm not quite sure if I will make it again. Clam Chowder I will definitely make this winter. I didn't end up making the mac and cheese, so I can't say how it turned out. All together this was a very good week and Dave ate pretty dang good if I do say so myself.
The best things I made this week in my opinion were my chocolate covered peanut butter balls and my boston cream pie. (You know where my heart is. Remember, I use to be a 302lb girl at one time!)
Anyway that ends this week. Next week is just random recipes, but if I like any of the them I will let you know!

Sunday Morning Breakfast

So this Sunday I have been looking forward to all week. I had this special breakfast planned for Dave. Every day of the week I make him dinner, except on Sunday. Sunday is our breakfast day! (ok I'll be honest I make breakfast for him every day but it's never anything special, just eggs or cereal or blah blah blah.) So today I found this recipe called "A German Farmer's Breakfast" I loved it immediately because Dave is German (and he'll tell you that the instant he meets you lol. He's very proud of it.)

The breakfast turned out delicious, and a lot more than I thought it would!! Here is the recipe if any of you would like to try it.

German Farmer's Breakfast

3 Medium Potatoes
1/2-1 onion (depending on how much you like onions.) Chopped

a handful of fresh parsley chopped (add as much for desired taste)
1/2 C Sliced Mushrooms
4 T Olive Oil
5 Whisked Eggs
Salt and Pepper to Taste

First bring a pot with water (enough to cover potatoes to a boil). Boil Potatoes for 12 min. Drain and let cool.

Cut potatoes into squares and add to vegatable mixture along with 1 T olive oil. Cook until brown.
