3 Recipes & a Picture

Leftover Beef Stew

Leftover Beef skewer ingred.
Leftover Vegie Tray remains
Water to cover

Cook on low all day, than enjoy :)

I had a lot of leftover vegies and beef chunks from our BBQ so I threw it all in the crockpot the next day for dinner. Yum :) Things were so busy that I didn't get to take any food pictures but I have a couple recipes for you.

Super easy crock pot shredded BBQ Chicken

5 frozen chicken breasts
1-2 bottles bbq sauce

(how easy is that huh? :)

Now I put my ingred. in the crock pot the night before, about 11pm, on low and left it overnight. At about 11am I opened it up, removed the meat, shredded it with a fork, then added it back in for a couple more hours on low. Because the chicken was frozen I didn't add water, I didn't want it to get too runny. It was perfect served on large kaiser buns. There was none left after the bbq.

Now for dessert my Hubby wanted Tiramisu, But I couldn't find ladyfingers when I went to the grocery store that usually has them & I didn't feel like driving all over looking for them so I concocted my own recipe that my sis named-

Black & White Trifle

1 pkg chocolate wafer cookies
1pkg softened cream cheese
1 small pkg white chocolate instant pudding mix
1/2 cold milk
2 containers cool whip

Beat the cream cheese, slowly beat in the pudding mix, then the milk.
Beat until smooth, fold in 1 cont. of cool whip, whip it :)
Place a layer of cookies on the bottom your trifle bowl, add a layer of the cream cheese mixture, than a layer of cool whip, than a layer of cookies. Repeat until ingred. are gone.
Top with crumbled remaining cookies and keep overnight in the fridge.

This turned out really good, next time I make it I think I will double all my cream cheese ingred. except the cool whip. The way it was it only went about 3/4 the way up in my bowl. Because it sat overnight the cookies softened up, this reminded me of like a cookies & cream pudding or ice cream. Yummy :) Next time I will take pictures I promise!

I love the idea of using leftovers to make stew! The barbeque chicken and trifle sound good, too. And yes, I want to see a pic of that trifle next time you make it! I'll bet it was really pretty.

I left an answer to your question in the comments on my cupcake post, did you see it? I love making the filled cupcakes, it's so much fun and you can go crazy with fillings. I'm thinking about trying a sweetened cream cheese filling in muffins, next. Not sure if they'll be delicious or gross, but I want to try it!

Erica Hanks said...

Every time I come to your blog, I get hungry! Yum! I need to cook more! I just get so lazy and end up throwing something together at the last minute.

Lissaloo said...

Erica that is exactly how it goes here most of the time. I'm lucky if I get 2-3 meals a week planned ahead.

Thank you!!!
