I'm having a love affair with our crock pot.
I think the hubby is too.
Is it possible to have an affair with the same object... because we are.
I didn't register for a crock pot when we got married. I didn't think I'd ever use it. Until I moved to Michigan. Suddenly it seemed like a necessity. There's something about cooking up a huge pot of soup in the crock pot on a cold winter day. So I asked for one last Christmas and my parents got me one. I was excited, dreaming about pork roasts and chicken tortilla soup. But there is so much more to it than that.
I'm still a crock pot newbie and don't use it very often, but when I do, the results are amazing (as you can see here and here). The crock pot saves you time, money, effort, sanity...all at the turn of a knob. That's pretty freaking impressive. I wish it could do the dishes.
And here we have orange chicken- a new favorite in our house. Grab a jar of orange marmalade and some barbecue sauce. Got some soy sauce? You're going to need that too. And some flour, gingerroot, and 4-6 chicken thighs. Dump it all into your crock pot. You're good to go.
