I can feel my cholesterol rising just reading that.
“The national budget must be balanced. The public debt must be reduced; the arrogance of the authorities must be moderated and controlled. Payments to foreign governments must be reduced, if the nation doesn't want to go bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance.”

I like to use the crockpot for cooking dried beans. 

Mostly navy beans and red beans.

Navy beans;

Ham bone (or ham hock)
1 sm package navy beans washed
large onion
3 ribs celery
salt and pepper
1 tbs of old bay seasoning
bay leaves
cover with water
I set it on high until everything heats up then turn to low.

I like my chili beans made with the dried red beans.

Everyone has their own recipes for making chili beans.

I make mine with beef, onion, tomato sauce, dark chili powder and garlic.

I use it for my taco filling, tostados, or over fritos.  Topped with lettuce, cheese, fresh salsa (or chopped tomatoes) and sour cream.

My sister did something really weird. She would get a chicken, stuff it with tangerines (pierced many times with a fork), and toss it in the crock pot. I never got to try it, but my brother in law loved it.

anyone ever try that? or even hear of it?

Were the tangerines whole?  Interesting.  I've heard of lemon chicken but not orange chicken.  The only stewed kind of chicken I like is with noodles or dumplings.

Slow cooker iz mah freeend.

Chili, pork chops, stew, chicken and dumplings, name it.

But these are also some really good ideas.  I want to try that cube steak one, especially considering cube steak is pretty inexpensive.

These recipes sound soooo easy.  Love the different items to combine into sauces.  I haven't tried any yet, but they sure sound good.   :drool:

My favorite crock pot recipe.....

1/2 cup salt per pound of peanuts, cook on high for 15 hours.

I'm a guy. What do I know about slow cooking anything other than boiled peanuts. :-)

Too much salt.  1 cup per five pounds.  Oh and only boil Gregory peanuts.

This looks interesting.  Haven't actually tried it but with the price of ground beef, I wonder if cheaper frozen meatballs would be less expensive.
