We're having friends over for lunch after church on sunday. I'd like something that I can put in at 8-9am, and pull out at 12:30 and eat. Any ideas? I really enjoy cooking, but I just can't decide this time around.

Any dietary restrictions? I have been craving pulled pork for so long, and that would be great in the slow cooker, and would not take any time at all to "pull" it

I love to do chili, pulled pork, and beef roasts.

Lots of em, but I love pot roast,carrots,potatoes and some other veggies. But the best one that is the quickest my dad makes and now I make is meatballs with spaghetti sauce and we even add cooked spaghetti when its done. :D

We had pulled pork this week, and I don't want it again. I make a really good crockpot tortellini soup...maybe I'll go with that. It's my 4 year old's favorite meal.

I like to make beef stew in my crock pot. I get 2 packages of the McCormicks beef stew mix and mix that with 6 cups of water. Then I cut up potatoes(I leave on the skin), carrots and celery(you could add onions too but I can't stand them so I don't) then let it cook on low for about 4-5 hours. Then when its done you can eat it as is or put flour in it to thicken it up. I hate adding the flour though because I feel like all I'm eating is gooey chunks of that instead of the stew.

Nice. Yep. My daughter calls it tornado soup & it is "famous" in our family, lol. I guess that'll be it!



And there's no way I can bring myself to make homemade bread in the midst of moving, but I'll totally buy some frozen bread and heat it up. :lol:

Hahha I have the easiest recipe for homemade English muffin bread. It's so good with that soup (or just with butter and honey)...I can eat a loaf by myself.

Although I doubt I'll have the energy to use it now, can I have the recipe? :)

1.5 cups warm warm water
3 teaspoons of yeast (or two packets)
2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoon sugar
3.5 (ish) cups flour
(I eye ball the flour until the dough forms but is still a little sticky)



Put water in big bowl, add yeast sugar and salt. Stir and let dissolve for a minute or two. Add flour by cup at a time until dough forms but is still sticky
Put into buttered loaf pan and then let it rise until the dough reaches the top of the pan



Put in 350 oven for about 25 minutes, then take it out and pour about a tablespoon of melted butter on top and then out back in oven for 10 mins or until perfectly golden!




The recipe says to wait until it completely cools, but I never can because wait because I suck
