They sure don't make 'em like they used to!
As long as I had to go out in the freezing temps anyway, I ran to the bank and the grocery store too. Also stopped at Farm & Fleet and bought myself a 4 qt. crockpot, on sale! I have a 6 qt., but it's a bit too large for some things. I've been going through my crockpot cookbook: 365 Slow Cooker Suppers by Stephanie O'Dea, crockpot365.blogspot.com and so far have marked four recipes I want to try. Tomorrow I'll be trying "Classic Chicken (Crock) Pot Pie". I love chicken pot pie, and it sounds so good! Cooking for one is not a lot of fun - and when I make any kind of casserole, I eat it for days, which is fine, because I don't have to cook again for a few days! :-). I thought it would help if I tried something new about once a week -- give me some variety and forces me to actually cook instead of nuking something! So that's the plan!
Only thing left on my to-do list today is knit on the socks and knit on the hat! Dinner will be parmesan encrusted tilapia fillets and a salad!
Until next time....Blessings
