It’s been a while since I posted and I couldn’t wait any longer…the recipes are piling up and I want to share. The reason for my absence? I won’t bore you with all the details, but it has to do with consolidating all my web hosting accounts in a feeble attempt to save some money over the next few years. Sounds good. Alas, the first web site migration has been a nightmare. (Yes, I did burst into tears with tech support. The poor guy did not know what to do, so the call ended very quickly. But he got the immediate problem fixed fast.)
I’m really embracing my slow cooker these days. It takes a little bit of planning, but it’s nice to come home from work to a dinner that is, at least mostly, ready to eat. I had intended this meal to be for the Dark Days one pot meal challenge. But when I couldn’t fit the acorn squash into the slow cooker with the chicken, I gave up on that. Two pot meals don’t count.
Here it is, the 6th week of the Dark Days Challenge. Or maybe the 7th week…there seems to be some confusion. It’s a lot of weeks though, and I’ve been having fun. It’s a challenge to find interesting, locally sourced ingredients. First, they’re just hard to find. Second, my work schedule doesn’t leave me with a whole lot of hours in the week to go on the hunt. But somehow that’s making it more fun.
