What's on the table, Mable? Thursday Jan 9th?

I think I will do a salmon filet today, baked with lemon and dill. Sides will be brown rice with green beans for me and peas for TB. If I am energetic I may make a "faux hollandaise" that fits all our dietary challenges. Not sure how, but I love a project!

What are you having today?

Slight change in plans. I'm power defrosting a boneless chuck roast. Instead of pot roast, I'm making stracoto with porcini mushrooms. I'll serve this over mashed potatoes or egg noodles.

I'm in search of inspiration. Have shrimp, haddock and scallops in the freezer. Anyone with a brilliant crockpot recipe perhaps, that uses one or more of the above?

I have recipes, just not for a slow cooker. Besides, most seafood would be beyond way over cooked using one, IMO.

While searching I came up against the huge carrots and found some risotto rice, so I tried them both together... was okay, but not the best you can have...

I agree with Craig. The slow cooker is no place for fish and seafood. They cook in just minutes. You can go simple by sautéing them and serving with tartar and cocktail sauces or do something like a mixed seafood curry like Harry does.

I took some sliced brisket out of the freezer. I'll have that with some mashed potatoes and an onion gravy. Broccoli on the side. Or I go out to the store, mushroom gravy.
