Summer Yummy

We have been at the pool almost everyday this week. We usually go after naps in the afternoon. It is so nice to come in to a cool house and smell dinner in the slow cooker. After a fun in the sun we have to do baths and then I have two hungry kids. Or one. Hayden eats everything! I'm not kidding, but Layla she is currently on food strike. Yesterday I made an incredibly fattening casserole, with cheese and pasta...she ate a banana and almonds. I guess she was the smart one :) However I am all about easy and once again the slow cooker works for me. When my kids are older I am looking forward to cooking more gourmet meals. I found a homemade tamale recipe in The Food Network magazine...holy yummyness. I can't wait for a weekend to cook those, so here goes another EASY 'summer yummy' recipe.

Slow-cooked Italian Chicken

3 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 pkg. dry Italian dressing mix
1 can of 98% fat free cream of mushroom soup
4 oz can mushrooms, drained
8 oz fat-free plain yogurt

Place chicken in slow cooker. Mix together dressing mix, soup, yogurt and mushrooms. Stir into chicken.

Cook for 6 hours.

We ate this with a salad with a sun dried tomato vinaigrette dressing. It is made by Kraft and it is to die for! It is Gary's new favorite dressing.

I love looking at recipes online. I get an email from BettyCrocker, Allrecipes, and Campbell's. I love the patriotic desserts and fruit salads posted this time of year. Check them out. I am gonna add a new addition to my side bar so you can see where I get some of my recipes! Happy Friday :))
