Even though I am not working away from my home, the crock pot still gets a good workout. It is one of the best culinary inventions ever. Although it takes hours and hours for the food to cook, it is no fuss cooking at its finest.
Love the creamy texture of cream of chicken soup and cream cheese combined with the tanginess of Italian salad dressing mix. Anything is better with either one of these ingredients!
Serve with rice or mashed potatoes, a side dish like steamed broccoli or salad and some buttered biscuits and you have an awesome meal with little effort . . . just time!
