Day 67 - I Can Do One Thing!

Tonight we're having leftover pork roast, and it's pretty good if I do say so myself. I made it yesterday in the crockpot. Yes--you read that correctly: SOMETHING I MADE IN THE CROCKPOT WAS ACTUALLY REALLY GOOD.

I'll be honest: I can now do one thing with the slow cooker: roasts. Unlike all the recipes in those "helpful" cookbook, I cannot brown them first, cook them on high, or add ANY liquid, but as long as I just season the roast, put it on LOW and leave it alone, I can produce edible--sometimes even tasty--meals.

Not much to show for 4 years of trying to learn to use the crockpot, but at this rate on our 8th anniversary I'll be able to make TWO things in the thing. Look out world!
