Gypsy Chicken Stew
This was outstanding! All the flavors blended perfectly. I was afraid the sherry would be overpowering, but it wasn't at all. I used poblano peppers (couldn't find regular chile or "aneheim" peppers, believe it or not)..they turned out great...they are nice and fleshy and complimented it well. Also I used a large can of peeled whole tomatoes cut in half, fresh vine-ripes were $3.99 per lb. I opted for the $1.99 can, and it was just fine. I topped with shredded jack cheese and a little cilantro over white rice to soak up the broth. We also enjoyed a nice cold ale with it, yum!

Tuna Mushroom Casserole
This is the first time I've baked a tuna casserole...all these years I've only made a sauce and served without baking (that's the way my husband's mother made it, think "comfort food"). Imagine my surprise when he suggested I bake it! It was very good...I did follow other reviewers advice. I cut the bread crumb mixture in half, added peas and I used sliced fresh mushrooms (sauteed in a little butter and salt). I used whole grain penne pasta since that's what I had on hand. It was very tasty and the texture was good, but next time I will add a little more soup and milk to make it wetter as per my husband's suggestion. Also, the thyme was a little overpowering, I will cut back on it. A half teaspoon should be sufficient. Overall, we enjoyed it very much (even the picky kids)!

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork
This was very, very easy and so delicious! After hand shredding the pork, I stirred in a generous amount of Wegman's Memphis style BBQ sauce...its sweet, and has a strong smoky taste. I lightly buttered kaiser rolls with sesame seeds and lightly toasted them, then loaded on the pork. On the side we had home-made potato and egg salad and corn on the cobb. Yummmm!
