First things first people ... I have done it.
For better or worse I put my big girl social media pants on and I joined Twitter.
I am officially ready to Tweet.
Oh I have no clue.
I am officially ready to hashtag...or should I have just said I am officially ready to #?
Oh good grief. I am in trouble.
I would love it if any of you out there on twitter would
Thanks for being the best readers ever.
You are grand.
On with Slow Cooker Saturday. Another week, another Slow Cooker Recipe.
Can I get a WOOT, WOOT?
I LOVE sandwiches. Pretty much all sandwiches. There are a very few I won't eat...cough...cough...seafood salad sandwiches...ehem....
I love that this recipe was for chicken that was going into a sandwich.
The roasted red pepper and chicken cooked away in the slow cooker with no never-you-mind from me. When it was time to eat, I just had to get the bread, lettuce, tomatoes, and spread ready.
Then it all cozied up together and got put on a plate waiting for my undivided attention.
Well, not undivided. I couldn't help but giving some of my attention to these insane homemade Garlic Parmesan Fries (recipe included today).
I felt just like I was eating at a restaurant. Except I didn't have to leave a tip and I had to wash the dishes afterwards. But other than that...yeah it felt like a restaurant.
This is an easy and completely yummy sandwich recipe. Plus you can really switch it up how you like. With the Roasted Red Pepper Chicken as a base you can choose the type of bread. You can choose different spreads. Hidden Valley has these great new spreads that work perfectly on sandwiches (they don't know I am saying that, I just really like their spreads and want to pass on this little gem to other sandwich lovers).
We used the Spicy Chipotle Pepper flavor on one sandwich. We used regular pesto on another.
Both were super tasty.
See, you can switch it up how ya like.
Anyway you make the sandwich it will be tasty. Okay I take that back. You probably won't enjoy the sandwich if you use Peanut Butter as the spread.
This recipe is definitely worth trying.
