Chicken Caesar Salad Pocket Crock Pot #Recipe

Summer is here!  I don't know about you but when summer hits my cooking, meal planning and baking bug goes on hiatus!  I think it is the heat.  I never really want to turn on the oven or stove so until we have something planned to grill or put in the crock pot we find ourselves hitting the drive thru!  Yikes! Not good for us or our checkbook.  

Recently, I was trying to find some cool eats for hot days.  Another thing that hits me when it is warm out is that I do NOT like eating hot foods.  The kids and hubby will only accept PB&J sandwiches every other day!  (KIDDING!!)  

This weekend when the heat hit I tried something new and it was certainly a HIT by everyone.  In fact, we will be putting this on the weekly list I think.  Yum!
