I woke up last Saturday morning to gray, overcast skies, so thought it was as good a time as any to grab the crockpot and make some french onion soup.
By about 2pm, the sun was shining and it was really warm out, but by dinner time it was beginning to cool down again, and having been out all day shopping for new jeans for my husband, it was nice to come home to dinner pretty much ready. This is why I love the crockpot.
My husband loves to bbq, enough said! If there’s a way he can make a meal onto the grill, then he’s happy. Summer pretty much means at least one meal a week is bbq’d. Pretty soon this will be at least one crockpot meal a week.
I was in LA a few months ago, and got on a huge mexican food thing. One might say you can
actually eat too much mexican food, but my husband and I can prove you wrong.
To top the tacos off, they suggested homemade pickles which were delicious. I’ve never made
homemade pickles before, but they were super easy. I don’t think they are authentic or anything,
but now I’m thinking I could pickle just about anything.
For you cilantro haters, you could top with parsley, but I think that’s sacrilege.
Cilantro is great, so eat it NOW!
