Crock pot cookin'

Last week I had a brilliant idea: I was going to find crock pot recipes and use my crock pot everyday. And it was going to be fabulous. And easy.

Here's what I learned:

1) Out of 4 crock pot recipes, only 1 made it into my monthly meal rotation.

2) It's nice to throw the ingredients together and forget about dinner until you're ready to eat.

3) Cleaning a crock pot is annoying.

4) Always have a back up dinner (i.e. frozen pizza, frozen skillet meals) ready in case your crock pot dinner turns out to be disgusting (and there's a good chance that's going to happen.)

So my fabulous crock pot week didn't really turn out as fabulously as I had hoped. I'm glad that I found one recipe that I can use. And with some recipe suggestions from friends, hopefully I'll be able to test out a few more recipes and add them to my list of delicious and doable slow cooker meals.

To help with #3, try spraying the crock pot with Pam before putting the food in. It's not a total miracle worker, but it does help considerably.
