Good Morning and Happy Tuesday!
In my journey to becoming an adult, I used my Crockpot for the first time yesterday. I am an avid cook and a bit of a control freak in that area, so the idea of "set it and forget it" was very daunting. But as a college gal with not a ton of cooking time on my hands, i figured it was time to venture into this brave new world.
I made chicken and rice and checked it basically every 30 minutes because I was convinced it would not work. How do they work? How can meat actually cook in what looks like just a hot bowl? After remembering last minute to add water so my rice would cook and waiting 2.5 hours, the dang thing actually worked.
I then got that thought most people get when they have a new kitchen toy: "what else can it do?" So if you've got any Crockpot recipes, let me know because its my favorite now. Edible Campus, however, has a much better, fresher handle on food than I do. Check out our photo story on the grocery store in our own backyard.
