Non-goose Michaelmas

No goose to be had around here, so I made one of the easiest, cheapest, yummiest crockpot dinners tonight...

Brookside Bistro proudly presents....

Crockpot Chicken, with its companion leftover recipe, Chicken Pastina (con Verdure, if you want to get fancy.)

Kasia - you can do this one!

Here's why I love making this meal - aside from being VERY yummy:

whole, fresh chicken = $5
broth = $1
soup mix = $1.50
pastina = $2.50
veggies = $2.00

So we've spent about $11.00 and change to feed our family of 4.25 (he's still little!) for two nights. Not bad, and they love it!

I slammed out some homemade bread, too - felt the urge to knead today - and topped off the experience with some honey butter. Oh yeeaaaahhhh....

Mmmm! Soon's someone buys me and Canuck the bigger slow cooker we registered for (mine's definitely not big enough to accommodate a whole chicken), I'm making this!!

Yippee!!!!

Sounds yummy! is pastina like that little tiny pasta?

Yep - I put a picture of the box next to the recipe on the bistro blog - it's tiny little stars (think "chicken & stars" soup). I also make a killer pastina carbonara with it. Another post for the fall, I guess....
