So I used a slow cooker for the first time ever the other day. It is truly a miracle device. I put a liner in, added chicken thighs, chicken broth and a bunch of spices, and 8 hours later had tasty cooked food. The cleanup was a snap and I had tons of leftover. I don’t know why I waited so long. I learned that I do need to spice more aggressively, though - the meat came out moist, but a little bland.
Oh, even better? I learned I can add frozen meat. So, take 5 minutes in the morning to add frozen chicken and some other ingredients to the cooker and come home in the evening to a delicious home cooked meal with easy cleanup. What’s not to like?
Favorite slow cooker recipe sites I’ve found or had recommended:
Has anyone else noticed that the critiques that Hollie and Jessica (and even Elise) get are not given to Skylar? The judges aren’t telling Skylar to loosen up, or connect with the audience better, or show emotion because she already does all those things. I’m not generally a country music fan (though my husband is doing his best to convert me) but I really enjoy Skylar. Sadly, I think she’s going to finish third or fourth behind Colton, Jessica and possible Phillip. No worries, though - much like Kelly Pickler, I’m sure she’ll have a career.
