Pozole in a Slow Cooker
I had heard tell of how good traditional pozole is and this was really good, just not quite as good as I imagined it would be. I wonder if this could be because I had to use all dried peppers, except for the fresh pasilla peppers I found. However, it was definitely yummy enough that I would make it again. I tried it both traditionally with cabbage and lime juice, and gringo style with sour cream, cilantro, and cabbage and both were good, but I did like the flavor and contrast that both the sour cream and cilantro gave it.

Slow Cooker Chicken Pot Pie Stew
Not bad, I'm not sure if my potatoes were just large, but I used the amount the recipe called for and felt that the mixture didn't have quite enough sauce, so I added a little more soup to mine. It is plenty salty, so I would recommend using less bouillon. I halved the recipe and only needed a cube and this was perfect for me. Very filling and I would imagine this is quite a bit healthier than the average chicken pot pie. Oh, and if you don't want to wait for the crock pot method, I cooked up my chicken and boiled my carrots and potatoes in a separate pot. Then I put the other ingredients in a pot and added the cooked chicken and potatoes, made my biscuits, and then ate it about an hour later.

Barley, Shrimp, and Corn Salad
Sooo good! I loved the chewiness of the barley and the over-all mix of flavors. I made this recipe farely close to as written only I used about twice as much lemon juice, because I love the citrus flavor. I even used fresh thyme, but I would recommend using less thyme than listed. I put in the small thyme leaves and felt like I was biting into a Christmas tree when I would get an entire leaf. Chop it finely! But next time I will use less thyme and try using dried thyme to see how the flavor compares. Over-all I loved the unique combination of textures and flavors!
