Che Annon? Maybe not...

I remember when I used to be a good cook. Well at least I used to think I was a good cook
  It seems my cooking abilities have faded along with my youthful good looks.
  Makes one wonder... Was it ever the cooking?....

    The problem with cooking nowadays for me is time (and organization). Pam is working her fanny off, and I get home around 6. I rarely have the ingredients on hand for dinner, so I run out to the store and get home and cook something quick. Sometimes I have enough foresight to have the ingredients on hand to throw something together in the crock pot in the morning. Then I focus on recipes that can be thrown together in 3 to 5 minutes. Try this one on for size:

    Lazyman's Green Chile Chicken Stew (my own invention):
    Prep time: 5 minutes, cook time 8+ hours

    2 bags frozen 3 pepper and onion blend
    1 bag frozen home-style hash brown potatoes
    2 lbs frozen boneless, skinless chicken breasts
    6 lbs frozen green chile
    2 healthy shakes (approx 2 Tblsp) chopped fresh garlic
    1 1/2 Tblsp (approx) chicken bouillon powder
    1 to 2 tsp dried basil
    Salt and cracked pepper to taste
    1 to 2 Tblsp whole wheat flour to help thicken (optional)

    Throw it all in a very large crock-pot and cook low for 8 hours. Stir with a sharp serrated knife to shred the chicken when done. Serve with flour tortillas and a salad on the side. Serves 12 humans (or 2 humans and 3 teenagers).
