more thoughts on crockpot cooking

   Posted by: liz   in family, food

i just finished putting together a chicken and rice meal in the crockpot (using NO cream-of-soup from a can), and i have to run some errands this morning.

when i was putting the meal together, and it was too late to change my dinner plans, i suddenly realized that there will be a time this morning that i will not be in the house as my crockpot is PLUGGED IN and COOKING away.

PANIC!

so i sent an email to my mom (who lives across the street from me):

“mom, i’m headed out to the shops. i have dinner in the crockpot so will you, from time to time, look out your window to make sure the house isn’t on fire? thanks!  ~liz”

and yes, i’m serious.

hahaha! 1. I LOVE the NO cream of soup in a can, and soooo many casserole and crockpot recipes call for it! nasty!! 2. “mom, i’m headed out to the shops. i have dinner in the crockpot so will you, from time to time, look out your window to make sure the house isn’t on fire? thanks!” too funny!!!!

Please do post the recipe. I am not a big cream soup consumer either, although my Dutch mother casserole credentials may be revoked for saying so.

I don’t trust small appliances as much these days, finding them generally more poorly made and unreliable. But back in the 1970s, the whole point of a crockpot was to load it up in the morning, leave it alone all day, and have dinner ready when you got home from work.
