Due to my obsession with the crock pot, we have been able to eat fairly well since we moved into the hotel. Note I said fairly. 🙂
A lot of bread. A lot of frozen microwave meals. A lot of Ramen noodles. And most certainly, nowhere near the zero waste I can pull off at home. But without a kitchen, I think we’ve done fantastic by not eating out but once a week. So far I have cooked in the crock pot:
BBQ Chicken with microwave mashed potatoes
Vegetable soup made with frozen veggies, an onion and a bottle of V8 juice
Meatloaf stuffed green peppers
Chicken A la Mike
Tuna Invention (three times)
Hard-boiled eggs (which I whipped into egg salad)
Salmon, rice and veggies
A stuffed whole chicken
Corn on the cob
I’ll post these on my G.I. Crockpot blog so you can see which ones worked and which were a yucky disaster. Maybe you can find something you’d like to make! Or just get a hoot out of my horrible failures—which we ate anyway!!
Any quick crock pot ideas you could give me that don’t require anything other than a knife and a chopping board? No spices here but salt and pepper!
