"What a Crock" Wednesday

As you know, I'm in love with my crock pots.  I have four, one that is really old - before the crocks were removable.  Two are single crockpots - two different sizes, and then the triple one. I've been using them quite a bit, it makes dinner easier when it's been so hot.

I've made this bread pudding twice - once with apples and raisins, once with fresh peaches.  I don't make the sauce, I did use the sugar since it was only 1/4 cup and I substitute the mulling spice from Tastefully Simple for the cinnamon.  It is really good, and the family prefers the peach variation.  May try pears the next time.

On today's menu is this pot roast recipe.  It uses the three mixes pictured along with 1/2 cup water.  I haven't decided what to serve with it; I love these potatoes. Covering the crock with foil steams the potatoes, they are perfectly done without being mushy.  And I also found this recipe for crock pot mac and cheese.  I'm not sure if I have the evaporated milk, but if I do, this is the one.  I'm off to load the crock pot, have a great day.

I want to start using my crock pot more. I have a little one that I think might be perfect to try Steel Cut Oats for breakfast. The larger one I used to make Chili for my crew at all-day sports events when I was a cable TV producer. It hasn't made anything since I did peach butter in it in 2004. It's crying to cook something! LOL

That bread pudding recipe is yummy-looking! I may have to try it!

I love my crock pots. That is is the bread pudding that I make and I put the sauce. Hubbykins loves it!
