oh hellz no!  lemme see....Fridays we always go out...Sat Andrew will usually make our "big" meal of the week, or try out a new recipe....Sundays we have pizza, so that we can have leftovers on Monday, that way we don't have to start out the week cooking or making a mess in the kitchen...


Andrew does most of the cooking...i will find the recipes and he will make them...good deal, huh!


i think Sunday we are making a baked cinnamon toast breakfast thingee i found on www.thepioneerwoman.com/cooking

jax- thats a good deal ya got going on!! oh and that looks yummy, im adding it to my list!! i try about 2 new recipes a week, and pioneer has been my fav lately.


clighter- wanna join my facebook club, called crockpot tuesday?! I post all of the crockpot adventures!


 


 2lb. Shallots, peeled
1 chicken (about 2lb) cut into serving pieces
salt and freshly ground pepper
2 Tablespoons unslated butter
2 Tablespoons canola oil
1/4 cup dry red wine (such as burgundy)
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/4 balsamic vinegar

using a pairing knife, cut a shallow X in the root end of each shallot. Set aside.

Season chicken with salt and pepper. In a large, deep frying pan over medium-high heat, melt the butter with the canola oil. working in batches, cook chicken on both sides until browned (about 5 mins). remove from pan and set aside.

Pour off all but 2 tablespoons of the fat from the pan. Add the shallots and cook saute over medium-high heat unti lightly browned, about 5 mins. add the wine, broth and vinegar. bring to a boil and degalze pan, scrapping brown bits off the bottom.

Transfer chicken to a slow cooker and add the shallot mixture. cover and cook until chicken is tender. About 3 hours on high or 6 hours on low.

If cooking on low, once the chicken is done, remove the cover and and set the temperature to high, cook, stirring often until liquid has thickened (about 15 mins)
