The beans and ham still tasted good, but I was afraid of that crock pot burning the house down or shorting out and leaving uncooked food on the counter all day. So, I ordered a new one.
It's fantastic. I used it yesterday to make a vegetarian shepherd's pie. It cooked evenly, the lid had a handle and nothing blew up. I'm quite happy.
This is a busy week for us so we're making a couple crock pot meals and eating the leftovers all week. Doug is in training and Phee is out of school for three days so we have lots of fun stuff planned.
Meals for the week of August 20
Vegetarian shepherd's pie (recipe coming later this week!)
Crock pot chicken tacos (I've been formulating a recipe in my head for this one... we'll see)
Sandwiches or breakfast if we need a filler meal
