I’m pretty proud of the fact that I can count the number of super bowls I’ve watched on one hand. I hate football with a passion. During high school I was part of my school’s color guard. We were pretty good. Ramsey High School was much better known for Big Blue, its band and guard, than it was for any of its sports team. We competed on weekends all over the northeast, but Saturday mornings were our dress rehearsals, halftime at the high school football games. For four years I was forced to watch football. As soon as I could escape I did.
You really can make anything in the crockpot. While I tend to stick mostly to dinner foods but have come across recipes for oatmeal, bread puddings, even cakes! Personally, I’d cook everything in a crockpot if I could, but I do understand not everyone is as into the idea. One woman said her kids referred to it as “mushy food”. If you want the sharp snap of a carrot that goes along with vegetable stir-fry, a crockpot may not be your best friend. But for warm, comforting stew or chili, or a faster, easy way to make BBQ Brisket or Pulled Pork, welcome to my little corner of the kitchen.
