Nope. I met Cat on a political website. She has amazing common sense, intellect, and humility. Very refreshing around those parts!
I've got about 3 hours to go, just enough time to head to the corner bar and catch the football game. It smells great so far, though!

A couple of things you might need to remember. A crock pot can dry out your meat. Sometimes 8 hours is too long. The more you lift the lid the longer it will take to cook your food. You could just throw the meat in with a cup of water and some seasonings. It won't be as good as all the stuff everyone else has suggested but it is a place to start. Even just salt and pepper would do it for a beginning. Check out the manual that usually comes with the product. There will be recipes there. Good luck.

Oh..I see you already started it. Don't br surprised if your veggies pretty much dissolve after 8 hours of cooking. Hope it turns out well.

So do you! You're very smart and you are so very nice to me on that whacky website. We won't speak of it here, thank God.

I can't wait to see how this turns out for your meal. This is very exciting to us; your first time with these foods and your crockpot.

Mordent, Mamma did say this to me: "If you can read, you can cook."

One of our members I think, suggested a crockpot cookbook. I think that's a great idea! Since you do not have a wife and children, you'll wish to look for a cookbook for one or two people. You'll be able to freeze leftovers for later meals, which does save very much time!

With love,
~Cat

Head to your local library and go to the cookbook section. You can use their copy machine to copy any recipes you see and like. Good luck with your meal.

My mom always says this, too. I would add that you should heed what you read, until you get some experience under your belt.

I had a friend who always overcooked a roast. She took it out of the oven when the recipe said to, but it didn't look done to her, so she put it back. After more cooking, resting and carryover cooking, of course it was overcooked!

Mama's are usually right. Sounds like you have a good start. I'm also on the west coast. What time did you say was dinner?
Good luck on the project

It turned out pretty good. I think the onion was too big, though. It's a little onion-heavy, flavor-wise. =(
