  Sounds very good.

           Thank you.

Eek!  Guess I really need to put a pic of the real thing up instead of what is there.  But, that was when we were first getting FBR up and running, and I forgot to go back and fix the pic.  Oops...

Saturday night started out with crusty bread and shrimp sauted in garlic butter.

Dinner was steak, green beans sauted with garlic and onions and a cast iron fry pan with sliced potatoes, onions with garlic and oil and I sprinkled pepper, salt, rosemary and thyme on top.

Dessert was blueberry pie with vanilla ice cream.

Everything turned out great!!!   hungry

Great minds think alike! chili and cornbread, but I did something bad, I used the pressure cooker to cook some pinto beans and I was in a rush to get dinner on and added the beans to the chili and they were almost cooked bug-eyed oh well, we ate it anyway, then I put the whole thing back into the pressure cooker and made chili soup out of it.  The corn bread was good!yes

Slow cooker pork roast, green beans, & tater tots (my 2 year olds favorite).  Love it when I think ahead & use my crockpot! So nice to come home to an already cooked dinner.

I am so fond of crispy on the outside, well seasoned roast pork that I could never bring myself to cook it in a crock pot

I was worried about not getting a crispy outside, but the recipe I had called for minimal liquid & I did get some of the crispy outside.  Not perfect, but not bad for a crockpot.

When I cook a roast in the crockpot, like I did today, I don't add any liquid at all.  What happens is that some liquid naturally comes out of the meat.  The bottom of the meat, which is sitting in the liquid, doesn't get crisp, but the part above the liquid gets nice and brown and crisp.  I like using the crockpot for roasts because it helps me cut down on our gas bill yes

happy-flowerI am going to roast a chicken in my 6 qt. roaster, I would like a more crispy skin on top--the chickens taste wonderful, but would like to see a more oven roasted look, like Helen, I don't want to run the big oven.

      Thank you.

If you live anywhere north of Key West Florida you have no need to avoid using the gas oven It just helps to heat the house. In Maryland we haven't been much above freezing for several days.

Tonight I'm trying a low-carb dish called "Crazy Cabbage".  I had some crockpot rump roast left over from last night, but not really enough to make a meal out of.  The Crazy Cabbage recipe calls for hamburger, so I used part hamburger and part leftover rump roast.  I'll also make some mashed potatoes for my husband, but not for me *cry*.  If this dish turns out good, I'll post it on the Farm Bell later.
