I’m in love- part 2

I’m in love.  Again.
And not with my boots.
Oh, and not with J.  I mean I love J, but that’s not who/what I’m talking about, of course… wow- I’m digging.  Back to the point at hand.
I love my crock pot.
One of my friend’s mom bought me a crock pot as bridal shower gift.  It was one of those items that I registered for knowing that I should, but thinking I wouldn’t use it for ten years.
O me of little faith.
The crock pot has saved me.  I hate overcooked/undercooked/dried out meat.  And I love meals with flavor other than salt.
A few weeks ago I made this, a cranberry beef dish… basically stew chunks, cranberry sauce and soy sauce in the crock pot.  Done 6 hours later. I served it over mashed potatos.
We had some friends over for dinner the other night and I courageously served a new recipe (although, the actual use of the crock pot negates some of that courage)- golden pork with cinnamon apples. Pork roast, brown sugar, golden mushroom soup, soy sauce, cinnamon, sugar, and apple slices.
Yum- I have no photos, but pork was made for the crock pot.  Perfect texture.
If you’d like to rejuvenate your love for your crock pot- check out the crock pot app for iphone or ipod touch… or that slow cooker lady’s blog (1 recipe for everyday of 2008… she was committed).

  1. Since photos are unavailable, I can vouch for the pork-apple dish. Very tasty! And, as I was the guest of honour (oooh fancy with the “ou”), I am confident that my opinion is way credible.

  2. I agreee. With the cold weather I have renewed my love for my crock pot (and mine came with a baby crock pot for dips, which I have yet to use even though it is really cute!).

  3. I just waddled in, stuffed from dinner and thinking I could never eat again. And then I read this and I'm drooling!

    I will have to dust my crock pots off (I actually have different sizes)and crank them up soon. Thanks for the inspiration!
