I am loving my crock-pot. I've had it just over a year and let me tell you - that thing is amazing! I love that I can throw a bunch of stuff into it in the morning, then go out, run around town, come home and have a delicious hot meal ready for me! That's true love.
This weekend, thanks to an email from my friend Betty Crocker (I wonder if she is related to the Crock-Pot), I made a chicken and gnocchi soup that was fabulous! It kind of reminded me of a creamy chicken pot pie, without the top. A nice country home cooked meal for a cold weekend night. Served with fresh sour dough bread from the farmer's market... Perfection! I want to say this is my favorite thing from the crock-pot, but I say that pretty much every time I make anything in there, so I guess it wouldn't really count. But it is in the top 5 and will definitely be made again.
I think next weekend will be a perfect time to try my Wheat Montana Chili Mix that was given to me for Christmas from my Montana family. After that, who knows. Suggestions welcome! YUMMY!
