Comfort Food: Crock Pot Style
A party I hosted yesterday was billed as a "Comfort Food Pot Luck." I served two main entrees: beef stew in one crock pot and mac and cheese made in another crock pot.
I must say both dishes were tasty and relatively easy to make. I had to spend some time in the morning peeling a few potatoes and browning the stew meat, but then it's a cup of this, a touch of that, mix it all together in the crock and viola! By the time the guests arrived, the meal was ready to serve. As a bonus, it made the house smell great!
Yesterday was the first time I ever tried making macaroni and cheese in a slow cooker. That was even easier! Shredded cheddar cheese, cheese soup, some evaporated milk, butter, and eggs blended together to make a creamy and delicious meal.
Now that I've had success with two crock pot recipes, I want to do more with the slow cooker. What meals do you like to make in the crock pot? Please share in the comments section below.
