Get Ready for Crockpot Week!

Heh.

I've decided to make mostly crockpot dinners this week. Something about coming home from work and having a DONE meal turns me on. Seriously. A previous BF of mine once gave me a crockpot for Valentine's Day. I was a little miffed at first, but once he explained that having our meals cooked when we got home would leave time for other things.... *wink, wink* ... well, let's just say I warmed up to the idea quickly. :)

Besides, I don't use my slow cooker nearly enough as I should. Mainly, I use it to make my veggie chili. But, I know there's a whole world of slow cooking out there. It's time to become part of it.

I've picked out three recipes and purchased ingredients for them. I'm making the first meal tonight (actually it's cooking as I type!). Check back tomorrow and the remainder of the week for stew, soup and casserole recipes a la crockpot.

I'm interested to see how it turns out! I don't have a crockpot, probably just cause I'm not sure what all I can make with it. Would definitely be nice to come home to a cooked meal though...

Wow, I used my Crock Pot last night to make Two Mushroom Barley Soup from Robin Robertson's Fresh From the Vegetarian Slow Cooker. I'm not in love with this cookbook for two reasons: 1) The cooking times seem to be off in that the two recipes I've made have resulted in food caked on to the sides of the Crock Pot and 2) Almost all of them require prep as opposed to just throwing everything in. That being said, the soup, which turned out as more of a risotto, tastes great! Have fun w/ your Crock Pot adventures!
