Friday Fave: Slow Cooker

My slow cooker, aka crock pot, and I are in the midst of a love affair this week. I used it twice this week after never really using it on my own before. Hubby makes a mean pulled pork using the crock pot and that was really the extent of us using this beautiful machine. I made that Spice Corned Beef Brisket with Horseradish Sour Cream on Wednessday, and Lani's Chicken Tortilla Soup with a Heather twist yesterday (I'll be sure to share that recipe with you. It's delish!). And guess what?! Today, I don't have to make dinner because we have beef and soup leftovers! YAY!

We did the obligatory registering for this wonderful thing when we got married. We didn't have one and knew it was something we should have, along with a rice cooker and a some bed sheets. It is really sad that I/we haven't used it more in the 3 years we've been married. I'm sorry my dear slow cooker, I have neglected you for too long! I can't even remember who got it for us, but whoever you are, THANK YOU! I could quite possibly leave my Hubby for my slow cooker and Target someday. ;)

I am glad we have this version. I was just cruising Cuisinart's website and the newer ones have fancy buttons and a digital screen. This seriously couldn't get any easier with a knob that says Low, High, Warm, and the bottom knob with the amount of hours you want to cook at that temperature. Hello idiot proof! Although my timer knob doesn't go passed 8 hours and the new digital version lets you cook for 24 hours! Whoa! Anyone have a recipe for something you'd need to slow cook for 24 hours?! That's crazy!
