Slow Cooker Chicken and Noodles
I quartered new potatoes and placed those in first, then added my chicken pieces(seasoned with garlic salt and fresh cracked pepper) added carrots and celery then poured in 4c water with chicken bouillon and 2 bay leaves. Toward the end I added leftover roasted red bell peppers, mushrooms, and onions. I had regular egg noodles and boiled them separately. I tried thickening it with the cornstarch but that didn't work. I even tried instant mashed potatoes. In the end I made a roux with butter, flour, and some of the liquid from the slow cooker on the stove. That did the trick. I think cooking the noodles separately will result in a thinner broth. I will make this again. I would like to try adding a little sour cream at the end next time.

Groovy Green Smoothie
Yum! I used vanilla Greek yogurt. I didn't have any grapes so I used the entire peeled, cored, and chopped apple as another reviewer suggested. I tried this with kale and it was very good. First time making a smoothie. Will make again.

Easy and Quick Strawberry Summer Salad
Great base recipe. I spiralized and marinated my cucumbers in the dressing with fresh chopped mint. Started with field greens, then topped with the cucumbers, sprinkled the sliced strawberries and garnished with feta cheese. I think my addition of mint and feta took this over the top.
