After an 11-month hiatus, I shall be using my Crock-Pot® again in the morning, for what I believe will be the sixth time in just over two years.
I have no idea what I’m going to attempt.
#1, November 2006. Some variation on German potato salad that turned out quite well. I was pleasantly surprised with my ability to make something edible.
#2, January 2007. Mahi Mahi chowder. While it made a mess in my car, it was tasty.
#3, February 2007. Queso dip? I don’t remember.
#4, May 2007. Some sort of chicken with way too much vinegar and garlic. I think it was a variation on a Filipino recipe. It was actually ok, but I felt sick afterwards.
#5, January 2008. A variation on a Tuscan bean soup or stew. I made it for people who are true foodies, and they genuinely liked it, so I must have done something right.
So I almost never cook…and I when I cook for myself, I make some horrible things. But if I’m cooking for someone else, I somehow manage.
One thought on “Toastie Crockpot Surprise #6”
Oh. My. Goodness.
I recently made that Filipino recipe and when I lifted the lid of the crockpot, the vapors actually singed my eyebrows. I don’t know what I did wrong, because I followed the recipe to the letter, but the results were vile. I think the proportions must have been off.
DH likes to do corn beef and cabbage in the crockpot, and then he has leftovers for homemade reubens for a few days. He also has a great recipe for Portuguese beans (pink beans, two types of sausage, and onion, etc.) that he and the kids love. I don’t have much success with the crockpot, but (joy!) I’m the one who gets to clean it!! hahaha
