Slow cooking - a great fit in Sandy UT

I discovered Crock Pot cooking in my Aussie bachelor days.

Easy meal preparation, and always way too much. Meal size portions into baggies, flatten and stack in freezer. After a few different recipes, the variety in the freezer could satisfy my requirements, especially so if I remembered to label the packages -otherwise "meal surprise"

Colder weather, and the production of comfort food make slow cookers ideal for my lifestyle in Sandy UT. Besides food is always a good conversation starter.

Slow cooker recipe books are legion. They are everywhere, for the faint-hearted and the unadventurous.

With a slow cooker it is very hard to have a flop. My basics:  meat of choice, chunks of fresh vegetables, flavoring and water. It worked well with beef, lamb, pork, even kangaroo or wallaby. The end result was often a hearty stew. Meatballs, dumplngs and spacialty sausage have found their way into my pot.

My standard Crock Pot for a long time was less than a gallon, round upright.

Just recently I lashed out for a new slow cooker, an oval 6 quart one which even came with a miniature pot for heated dips (.6 quart) - all for less than $20. And it's a bewdy, mate.

Today's menu is a fortified soup, featuring chunks of potato and butternut pumpkin (home grown of course). Smells great.  Eminently shareable - we are likely to have different visitors throughout the day. They will have this offering (just my wife's nature of hospitality, and a a buffer against the cooler weather).

Besides, there's heaps.

Larry I love crock pot cooking. We have a real nice one that is ceramic and comes out of the base and easy to wash. Good for people on the go.

Took me several years of marriage to get my wife to use a crock pot or any sort of slow cook. She thought the food would go bad if cooked overnight.

Noah - good to see you are into slow cooking. I use an old liner as a stovetop vessel for some experiments.

Than - single males have less food inhibitions than caring new spouses. They jut don't want to risk losing you.
