Its that time of week for planning our menus. I am continuing with cooking from the pantry as much as possible. We still have potatoes, but they are dwindling!
No, I didn't make this sweet potato pie. Ms. Smith's Sweet Potato Pies were on close out at Food Lion for $1.99. I doubt I could purchase the ingredients for less than that, so this was a Sunday treat, served with vanilla ice cream. My hubby said he felt like it was time to go Christmas Shopping or something, since sweet potato pies are a Thanksgiving and Christmas time dessert.
Also on Sunday's menu was what I call Ruby's chicken. Do you remember what Ruby said on the movie, "Cold Mountain", when Ada told her the rooster was a devil? "PUT HIM IN A POT!" I made my version of chicken in a pot. I cooked a whole chicken (or as the label said, a whole bird) in the crock pot until tender. I then removed the chicken to a plate to cool. I added potatoes, carrots, onions and bell pepper to the pot, added a small amount of water to the broth that came from the chicken, covered it and cooked the veggies until tender. Then I deboned the chicken and added the meat back to the crock pot on top of the veggies. For seasonings I used salt, pepper and dried basil.
