There is something gratifying about putting a whole bunch of ingredients into a crock pot, you turn it on, and a couple minutes later- done. Well, I haven’t been too successful. I want to love my crock pot- but I don’t.

Don’t get me wrong, I have made a pot roast or two- but I have been cooking for Doug and I for almost 4 years now, and I don’t think that I have done my crock pot justice. One time I tried this spicy Mexican chili chicken dish with vegetable and rice and YUCK! The chicken was dry, the vegetables were mush, and the rice was hard. I have never made it since.

We leave pretty early in the morning, so I need something that can be in the crock pot for a long time or something shorter that I can make on the weekend. I am not the only one who wishes she could use their crock pot, right? Maybe it is just me and registering for the crock pot for our wedding was well, a crock (sorry- had to do it).

Well, if there is anyone out there that can produce a super yummy crock pot meal, please share it! I would love to try it out!
