The first recipe is from one of my favorite blogs to read: Pearls, Handcuffs, and Happy Hour.
Crock Pot Pot Roast Sliders with Creamy Chipotle Sauce
Degree of Difficulty: 4
Mess Factor: 4
As I have mentioned before, I really do love crock pot recipes that only require dumping in all of the ingredients, setting the pot to low, and coming back 6-8 hours later. This is one of those recipes. The pot roast sauce used a lot of powdered dip and seasoning mixes.
The real recipe suggests making sliders, but I only had leftover hamburger buns, so we had full sandwiches. I used the broiler to melt pepper jack cheese on the buns and slathered on the creamy chipotle sauce.
The next recipe we tried out this week was inspired by a Taco Pie pin I found on Pinterest. After pinning the picture, I clicked on the link but it didn't go anywhere. Since I was already in the mood for Mexican, I ended up googling Taco Pie and picked/pinned a new recipe from Pillsbury. Not only was this recipe really easy, but it was super tasty as well!

In order to make this recipe a little healthier I used ground turkey instead of ground beef and I really don't think we lost out on taste. The first step is to brown the ground turkey, mix in 1/2 cup water, a packet of taco seasoning (low sodium of course), and a small can of sliced olives.
I'm in my last week of pregnancy, so not exactly sure what this week will bring in terms of getting projects done. My parents were in town this past Easter weekend and they were a HUGE help in getting Amelia's nursery ready. We just have a couple of art projects left to finish and hang up, then I will take the final pics and make the final reveal of her room!
