A year ago, I got the idea in my head that I would absolutely DIE if I did not buy a crock pot. I mean, come on. Throw a bunch of ingredients in a pot, plug it in, and VOILA! Hours later - with no help from me - dinner is done! I had to be a part of that!

So I said to my husband, "We have to go to the store immediately and buy a crock pot, because I will absolutely DIE if I don't get one."
My husband didn't think that I would die. "You won't use it," he said, to which I replied, "Of course I'll use it! Every single day! Every single night! Just imagine the ease! All I have to do is throw a bunch of stuff in the pot, plug it in and VOILA! Dinner!"
"But you won't use it," Will said again. "Just like you don't use pretty much every other kitchen thing you said you'd die unless you had."
Hmmm... he sorta had a point.
"But I mean it this time!" I promised enthusiastically. "Of course I'll use it! How can I NOT use it?!"
So I bought one. And I did use it.
Almost a year ago.
And both recipes were... blech. They were healthy vegetarian stews (my hubs is the veggie in our house) that used up lots of herbs and spices and still had no flavor whatsoever.
I have a crock pot.
And no idea what to do with it. This is where I hope you'll come in, people who make yummy food in crock pots.
HELP ME! Is there a recipe you make in your slow cooker that you love and adore and your whole family gobbles up? I beg you, please share!
I'm not a vegetarian and neither are the girls, so ANY kind of recipe will do! Do you have a link to one you found online? Post it for me in my comments, please! Do you have a recipe that you love and adore and don't mind typing up and sharing with me? Email me, please! (email@example.com).
And of course, thank you!
Happy Monday, folks! This is going to be a good week, don't you think? I do.
