Sahlab is a well known drink/dessert in the Arab world. It’s a thinner version of milk pudding or (Muhalabeya) and it’s so easy to make. You will need to know how many servings you need, so you have enough for everyone. (Hubby and I always take seconds and the kids wait for it to cool off first then eat as pudding in bowls) Per serving, you will need 1 cup milk. For each cup of milk add 1 tbsp each starch and sugar.

Freezer-to-slow cooker Friendly Meals

Posted by on Oct 14, 2013 in LoaMP, Main Course, slow cooker/freeze ahead | 4 comments

I’ve been meaning to prepare lots of freezer-to-crockpot meals now for a while. So I actually got myself to the grocery store and bought all the things I needed (at last). Only thing I really needed and forgot were gallon sized ziploc bags but oh well. I chopped the chicken breasts and chicken thighs and mixed them together so it would be a bit more tender than if chicken breast only. Worked well .   Here are the recipes I used and how many bags of each: Stew Meat, 1 lb each, not marinated. 4 bags Sirloin steaks, 4 large pieces in each bag, 3 bags, marinated with steak seasoning Chipotle Chicken Marinade, 1 bag Cut Chicken for cooking. ( Cut up chicken thighs and breast with salt, pepper, garlic powder) Can be used for stews later on like...
