We are having pulled pork for dinner tonight!  Another easy one, pork loin, onion, garlic, salt, pepper, and BBQ sauce.  Cooking on low today while I am at work.

Cooking is not my thing and I'm comfortable enough with that to accept that I don't even want it to be my thing. BUT life included working together to get the job(s) done and that means me doing some cooking and the slow cooker really helps me with that. AND we've had some great meals that we've repeated too much so I am making a butternut squash and white bean stew today. If it turns out well I'll share the recipe.

A couple of things I like about it so far are that it's a 4-5 hour thing which will be nice in the future if I don't get going first thing in the morning and that there are fewer pre-canned ingredients than some of the other recipes we've used and at the same time not much prep other than chopping.

I love that I am able to do other things-not tied to the kitchen. I definitely need to broaden my recipes.

I think I want to make this recipe this weekend. Cheese......

I think I might invest in a mini crockpot so I can make small batches of crockpot oatmeal.

We really try to eat pretty balanced meals with a meat, starch, and veggie every night and that can be a lot of work.  It's nice to come home and dinner is practically done!  It's also nice here in the summer when it's hotter than you know what to not have to stand by the grill and roast or turn on the oven.

I always see these recipes for overnight oatmeal. I think if you add fresh fruit, it give a chance for the oatmeal to absorb the juice and make the fruit soft.

I am so trying your oatmeal recipe!

For my husband, we have to have protein and starch/carb for diabetes. Too little carbs, his sugar plummets, too much, it spikes. We use the 3 plate method-One big protein, a veggie and a starch. We do veggie, meat, rice or a roll. Our starch/rice is usually the smallest serving. Just enough to get the sugars stabilized.  Smiley There are so many variations of eating food-my favorite is sticking the food in my mouth and chewing.  Cheesy

I work from home 1/2 day on Fridays-that's my crock pot day.

Does anyone have any recommendations on veggies in the crockpot, especially carrots. I either overcook or undercook them.

I roast all my veggies in the oven so I am no help with cooking them in the crock!  I have added carrot in when I make a roast but don't really care for them that way..

Starch/carbs are my favorite part of meals so I try to make that the smallest portion but it doesn't always work.  Give me bread or potatoes and I am a happy woman Wink

I made the best Buffalo chicken chili last night:

1 lb cut up chicken breast
1/2 chopped onion
2 chopped celery stalks
1 12oz beer
1 cup chicken broth
1 can fire roasted tomatoes
1/3 cup Frank's hot sauce
1 can black beans
blue cheese and sour cream for topping


If you want to, you can brown the chicken first, then add everything to the pot (except the blue cheese and sour cream),or you can throw the chicken and all the ingredients into the pot, cook on high for a 1-2 hours, then reduce to low and cook until the liquid goes down. Top with blue cheese and a little sour cream. You can omit the beans if you want.
