There are certain months where Husby has no set time when he gets off work. It's just up in the air - and whenever he's done, he's done. This past month, he was supposed to get off at 6pm, but mostly arrived home around 8. This makes meal planning/prep next to impossible! Cooking meals that require last minute attention have gone out the window around here, because I don't feel like being in the kitchen at all hours of the evening, and if I prepare it for when he's "supposed" to be off, it will be ice cold by the time he finally does get home. So, crock pot meals have been a life saver for us lately. I can throw the meal together in the morning and it can cook and simmer until late evening when we are ready to finally eat it.
The crock pot had to be invented by the wife of a medical resident - of this I am SURE! :)
But guess what, friends? This chick has officially run out of crock pot dinner ideas. And I need some HELP!
We have exhausted roasts and stews, and I've done the BBQ chicken and even some pork chops. We just need something different. I know there are thousands of awesome crock pot recipes out there ... it's just that I don't know about 'em. And I like "tried and true" recipes from my trusty blog friends, so if you could hook me up with your favorite crock pot recipes, you'll be my BFF.
If you have some great ones, share them and I will cook and review them on my blog. It'll be so much fun!
And I'll be forever indebted to you and your slow cooking knowledge. And hey, maybe in the mean time I can help out some other ladies in the same situation as me in providing some great new recipes! Here's to yummy hot suppers for the late eating families out there!
On your mark, get set, SHARE THE RECIPES!
Thank you so much, friends!
