An Affair With A Crockpot

I'm having a love affair with my crockpot. It makes me happy....especially on work days. So far this week I've cooked a turkey breast and a spaghetti squash in the crockpot. They were both super simple. For the turkey breast, just add some chicken broth and some herbs and cook on low for 8-10 hours. That's it. Simple. I followed a recipe for cooking the spaghetti squash, but it's really just instruction :: no ingredients needed. Again, very easy. Tonight we just topped it with a little butter, salt and pepper, but tomorrow I think I'll serve it with a dollop of chutney.
If you're interested in becoming inspired, take a peek at A Year of Slowcooking. Stephanie created this blog to document and review a crockpot recipe each day in 2008. I'm hoping to try some of her fall favorites very soon :: the Pumpkin Spice Latte perhaps.
