*Salads are my standard this week – mix of greens with roasted potatoes, chopped radishes and pickled red onion (I just thinly slice the onion and let them sit in red wine vinegar.) For the dressing, I used 2 tablespoons of the pickling liquid, 2 tablespoons of olive oil, some poppy seeds, some dijon, and salt and pepper to taste.

**Pizza and salad coming to us from Mellow Mushroom – you can $5 off an online order of $25+ with the code Mel5

***For this slow cooker chicken – combine the chicken, canned tomatoes, salt, pepper, oregano, parsley, and any other spices you feel would make a nice addition in a slow cooker. Cook on LOW for 2-3 hours (or high for 1-2). Before serving, stir in a splash of heavy cream. I also tossed some diced potatoes and broccolini in olive oil and granulated garlic, and roasted them in a 425 degree oven (potatoes for ~45 and add the broccolini in for the last 15 minutes!)
