I recently ordered a programmable 6 1/2 quart slow cooker. I’ve made three things. The first two were flops.
1) pork chops with orange apricot sauce: My son and I liked it but husband said “Could we please not have this again?” I think he is weirded out by fruit and meat combinations.
2) bean mix: even I was not crazy about this and I like everything.
3) Chili: A success. I posted the recipe here.
I love how dinner is ready when I get home. The mornings I put it all together I march upstairs and say to my husband “Honey, dinner’s ready!”
