Crock-pot/Slow Cooker December

unnamed

Howdy followers and readers. Or should I say Merry Christmas. It’s that time of year again! Lights, music, Mall Santa‘s, of course awesome recipes. I decided this month, since I have a lot on my plate to preview some of my favorite crock-pot/slow cooker recipes. If you are like me, you have relatives arriving in a week, with several other Christmas events in the community you must also be prepared for. So let’s commence Operation Crock-pot/Slow Cooker December. With some other recipes thrown in there for kicks.

 

A lot can be had with that pot you plug into the wall. And with little to zero prep. If you don’t have a crock-pot, these recipes can be adapted to be slow cooked on the stove or in the oven. Don’t you worry your pretty little head. You will truly love these recipes. You will believe the kitchen Elves came in while you weren’t looking and made a gourmet meal.

Just a hint: but that bag is the best thing ever. Requires little to no cleanup for you. Hence why Crock-Pot/Slow Cooker Recipes are so awesome.

 

Prepared to be awed. Check out my next post: Crock-pot Pot Roast!

I will be making a category solely for Crock-pot/Slow Cooker Recipes just for your ease and comfort.

Naturpark Frankenhohe: Picnic Epiphany

Eyrie and Sign

Had I really planned something today I would have brought a picnic on our walk through the Nature Park. We live in Burgbernheim, Germany, and the majority of Burgbernheim is a Nature Area where people from all over Germany come to walk, or Nordic walk through the forest.

So some Picnic food Ideas:

How to Pack a Picnic: http://www.countryliving.com/cooking/entertaining/packing-picnic-0905   (Stylish)

Sandwiches, which are easy to pack and light to carry: I’d go with a chicken salad, egg salad, veggie salad sandwich, tuna sandwiches. Wraps… But any will do

A Slug we came upon

Salads: As those above that you used as a spread, a pasta salad, potato salad, even a slaw. Fruit Salads a possibility also.

Fruit: Dried or fresh

If you have any recipes you would like to share, feel free to comment. My husband just ordered a tent. We are hoping to do some camping here in Germany before the warm season goes away.  I will be looking for some easy recipes to prepare ahead of time for a camping trip. I’m sure we will be cooking over the fire a bit, but having some food already prepared will make it all the better.
