Hubby had a taste for Tator Tots, something I have only purchased once or twice previously. SO, decided to appease the craving and make a Tator Tot Casserole; with ground beef in a cream of mushroom sauce; a lil bit of shredded cheese & the Tators on top. Not bad. Not something I plan to add to my regular rotation of recipes; but that's ok. emoticon

boneless ribs sound scrumptious. Thinking of the wine, you can always make jelly with the wine you don't use in the sauce.

Boneless BBQ ribs. Did not add the whole bottle of BBQ sauce, this time; which made better results. Still working on the right consistency. In this instance, less is better.

Recently I added not only kale and kernel corn, but diced ham and seasoned it with Southwest seasonings (cumin, 3 kinds of chile powder) and pureed roasted poblano peppers. Woo hoo. Gotta love roasted green chiles, even when they are not New Mexican variety and are mild. They are right good for one too, having a chemical which is a booster for our immune system.

Happy eatings!
May the forks be with you.

I'm slow-cooking our version of "stone soup"; an endless pot of cut-ends, canned beans, leftovers, tailings and what-nots. Btw, that latter category is not the Muppet you can buy online (hahaha).

emoticon

We will be doing this through the winter season, as it helps warm the house a little but namely makes it smell great, provides a mug of soup to snack or supplement with a meal, gives us something to offer neighbors and guests.

My standard seasoning is garlic granuales, worcestershire, bay leaf and every week or so I'll drop in some molasses when there are ham pieces in the soup. I use my metal tea defuser, it is shaped like an egg, to hold the broken bay leaf I normally would not use for fear of leaving it behind.

Some months ago, I had some wonderful BBQ drumsticks that were cooked in the crockpot. I've tried to cook the same; but, mine always comes out much runnier. I'm guessing they made their BBQ sauce from scratch. Idk, but, I need to make a change to my own recipe...will have to do some searching.

Thaila, that veggie chili over a tator sounds so good I'm gonna have to put it on the menu for tonight. I'm going to top it with homemade plain greek yogurt (fat-free milk w/whole-milk-greek-yogurt starter, strained in fridge in colander through microfiber towel). Thanks for the idea.

Ciao for now, Chow for laters,

I tried a stroganoff recipe that I'd found online, for dinner last night. It was real simple. Today, I hope to make up some chili. Don't know that it's a crock pot recipe, altho, I may turn it into one! I'm trying a "chili kit" (don't usually do that, but, this time am trying something different.) I usually make it from scratch, no mix.
