Thanks! I got a crockpot last year, but haven't used it much. I don't really know what to do with it.Now that I'm thinking about it, I own 4 crockpots plus 2 other "slowcookers/warmers" - I have a 6-7qt oval one that the handles failed on, but the warmer & the crock are fine, the 6-7qt oval one I bought to replace it, 1 4-5qt one that is both a fryer and a crockpot, and one 4qt crockpot I think my mom gave me nearly 30years ago that the crock doesn't even remove. Plus I have a rice cooker that claims to be a slowcooker too, and one of those mini crocks that keeps dips warm (those are nice!). I use my bigger oval one the most, but I'm also feeding a lot more people - 4-6 family plus if we have guests. Here are some of the things I'll do:Toss in frozen meatballs with bbq sauce. Or make them Hawaiian by tossing in pineapple and teriyaki/sweet-n-sour. Chicken parts/pork chops - add the sauce of you choice - bbq, salsa, cream of whatever, I'll toss in pork roasts with bbq or salsa, and make pulled pork or carnitas. Same with chicken breasts. Soups! Beans, split peas, anything with a broth and veggies with or without meat. Stew. Cheese/salsa/sausage dip! The trick will be finding a crockpot that fits your family size - so with just 2, look for a smaller one unless you want lots of leftovers. I don't think you can even buy the kind where the crock doesn't remove anymore, so no worries there - the removable crocks are so awesome - Also buy the little plastic liners - it makes clean up so easy! Always ;-)Hunzi
