Recipes for Nannygoat

I wish my recipes were all cute like Kathryn's, but here they are--a few of my family's favorites for the Nannygoat 30 meals project:

(And when I say "family's favorites" I mean Mike's and my favorites because I swear my children hate everything but plain potatoes. I keep telling myself that if they try it enough times they will eventually like it. Say when they're 20 or something.)

Ummm. . . did you know that copy and paste from MSWord to blogger is not functional? Does anyone know how to make this work? Sorry that means you get a short recipe and only one, because it is past my bed time.

This one is from my friend Melissa and it is easier than wiggling your finger:

Crockpot Salsa and Black Bean Chicken

4 chicken breasts (Can be frozen or thawed. Takes longer to cook if frozen)
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 jar of salsa
Add all ingredients to crockpot. Cook 7-8 hours. (Honestly I always forget to cook in the crockpot until lunchtime so I always kind of defrost the chicken in the microwave throw it in the crockpot and crank it to high for 3-4 hours.) One hour before serving, shred chicken and place back in. (I don't do this either. I shred the chicken right before I serve it. Don't use your fingers. It will burn.) Resume cooking. We like to eat this yummy chicken mixture in tortillas, although it is a little runny. You could probably serve it over rice or noodles as well. Mmmm.
