Do you remember there’s a Quiltathon coming up this weekend? Get your cleaning and cooking done ahead of time so you can spend as much time as possible sewing, ok?
Here’s a blog you all might want to check out – http://crockpot365.blogspot.com This lady is posting crockpot recipes every day. They’re all recipes she’s tried and she gives her opinion at the end of each post. I’m not a huge crockpot fan but here are the recipes I’ve tried and highly recommend. I haven’t tried I any I don’t recommend, so . . everything I’ve tried, we’ve loved.
Vegetarian No Noodle Lasagna – I made this and it was really (really) good. I added a pound of ground beef that I browned before adding to the pot. Guess mine wasn’t very “vegetarian”, was it? Add a big salad and crusty bread and the meal is done with little mess!
Chocolate Mousse – Now you know I’m not a chocolate lover but if I were, I’d eat this stuff til I .. well . . till I was sick! Chad and Vince loved it! The only thing I did different was I added more sugar, thinking maybe I’d like it better if it was sweeter. And, I have never had good luck putting warm stuff in the blender so I used my stick blender for this and whipped it up right in the crock pot.
Creme Brulee – This may sound bad but when you make this . . don’t tell your family. That way you can have it all to yourself. You really should test it before you share it with anyone else. And, sometimes you need to test a whole lot . . just to be sure it’s ok to feed the family, you know? Oh, this was so good! The only thing I did different was I used metal mini-loaf pans because that’s all that I had that would fit in my crockpot. Looks like she used a ceramic dish of some sort but I’m not about to put anything glass under the broiler for any amount of time. If I had one of those creme brulee torches, I could’ve used glass but I don’t, so I didn’t! 🙂
Anyway . . get the cleaning and cooking done ahead of time so you can Quiltathon this weekend, OK?
