Time to slow down...
It's cold. The trees have lost their leaves. That means it's time to break out the slow cooker.
I've been feeling the need for serious comfort food lately. I made country ribs and beans yesterday. I seasoned and seared the meat to get nice color and flavor and then put it in the crock pot with the beans, a little hot sauce (for the saltiness and the heat), more spices, water and some chicken stock. The smell was amazing before we even left to go to work! When I got home, it was falling-off the bone perfection. I added a green salad and some cornbread to complete the meal.
Is your crockpot on? If it is, what's in there? If it's not, what do you wish was in there?
