As you can probably tell from the few posts that I have had my oven has not been used for a while... It went out of commission a few weeks ago and the part is on back order! NOOOOO!! Like they say, you don't know what you've got til it's gone... While I am missing the handiness of having an oven that works I am also giving my trusty old crock pot a good work out, as well as the stove top and the grill! Hopefully it will be fixed soon so I can make a few loaves of banana bread and a few batches of cookies, but until then - the crock pot is on!
I searched my handy dandy crockpot cookbook and came up with a new recipe that I haven't tried yet... It was really good, even though I over cooked it a bit and it was a little dry. It was just as good when we threw some barbecue sauce on it and used the leftovers for sandwiches the next day! Yes, dual purpose!!
