The Wonders of A Crockpot!
Here is the two recipes I have used in our crock pot (and I don't know if they would even qualify as "recipes":
Put the roast in the crockpot.
Fill the pot with water until the water is barely covering the roast.
Add onions (even if you don't like 'em, they really bring out the flavor of the meat!), and chopped carrots.
A couple hours before you are to eat, add chopped potatoes.
Or instead of the potatoes you could cook some noodles on the stove, and then after you have pulled the roast apart, mix the noodles with the broth, roast, and carrots . . . Mmm Mmm good!
Basically we just put a chicken in the crockpot, cover it with water, and once it is done we pull the meat off.
Once that is done, you can use the chicken for whatever you want . . . chicken noodle soup, bar-b-q chicken sandwiches, chicken enchiladas, you name it!
Sooooo obviously if these are the only things I have ever cooked in the crockpot (well, I did try some brocolli/potato cheese soup once, but it was not a success!), I am not utilizing it to its fullest potential!
My goal is to find some more recipes for my crockpot, and try 'em out! If you have a favorite recipe, and wouldn't mind sharing that would be so great! Just leave a comment below with the recipe, or a link to your recipe! I am sure everyone could enjoy getting a few more meals out of their crockpot!
