    I made almost the same meal a few days ago in an even more time-saving way – with the crock pot! Which was an extra bonus b/c I could prepare it in the afternoon and then it was waiting for me when I got home from my Sunday evening yoga. 🙂

    I put chicken at the bottom of the crock pot, then layered with sliced red onion, green pepper, yellow & green zucchini, and fresh heirloom tomatoes. Sprinkle with italian seasoning, pepper & sea salt. Cool for high on 1 hour, then low 4-5 hours and voila! And I totally made up the recipe based on the veggies I had on hand.

      I love my crock pot! I don’t use it as much in the summer though. You can expect some recipes from that for sure this winter!! I agree, there is nothing better than a crock pot meal after yoga! (and I’m a huge fan of the everything but the sink cooking method!–Don’t let those veggies go bad!)

        Totally! And I hadn’t used my crock pot for 6 months or so, but it was the kickoff day of the NFL season and fall is in the air in New England!
