Crock Pot Cooking

Since we got our new crock pot this year, we’ve made 11 dishes with it.  We always make a lot of food, so it lasts for several days.  It’s very easy to use: we simply chop and mix our ingredients and let them cook all day.  It’s great to come back from work at the end of the day to a home-cooked meal that you didn’t labor over.

We often start with an online recipe, then ignore the suggested quantities and put in enough ingredients to fill the (7-quart?) crock pot.  Here are some of our concoctions:

Chicken with Collard Greens
