WEEKLY POT LUCK – CROCK POT RECIPES

My Project 151-001

This week we are bringing you some great main dish crock pot recipes from our friends around the internet.  Hot summer weather in the South always makes me bring out the crock pot to keep from using the oven and heating up my house.  I have always loved cooking in the crock pot and I own five of them.  I still have my first crock pot.  Remember those old three quart green ones? (some of the first ones were orange) The first crock pots came out around 1971.  I still have one of each!  The no turning, no stirring, no adjusting heat and being able to go off for the day makes me love this type of slow cooking.  I just put vegetables in two of them, my meat in the five quart one and return home to a meal all ready to put on the table. 

 We hope you will check out these recipes and sites.  You will be able to “share” with your friends by clicking on the Facebook, Pinterest or E-mail buttons at the bottom of each post. Click on the name of the recipe to check it out and Enjoy!  Be sure and check out the site as well as the recipes posted here.

WEEKLY FOOD TIPS FOR CROCK POTS:  Don’t overfill, 3/4 full is best.  Trim fat from meats before cooking to prevent greasy soups and sauces.  Generally, the low setting takes twice as long as the high setting in crockery cooking. Most of the time, stirring is not necessary and removing the lid adds 20 to 30 minutes cooking time. 

WEEKLY QUOTE:  No spectacle on earth is more appealing than that of a beautiful woman in the act of cooking dinner for someone she loves~Thomas Wolfe

WEEKLY FOOD FACT:  Most ears of corn have an even number of rows and most have 16 rows.

The crock pots today offer so many more cooking options than the old ones from years ago.  I probably use my crock pot more than any other appliance in my kitchen other than my mixer. I use it in summer and winter.  So, if you don’t have one or you have one and it is in the back of a closet somewhere, drag it out and cook up some delicious meals this summer. Here is a list of 26 Things You Can Do With A Crock Pot. 

Since this site is called “The Southern Lady Cooks”, I am adding a little Southern “thang” to this post.  We love having you all here from everywhere North, South and around the world. Not all my recipes are Southern but we like diversity, too.  Let’s just face it, we like to eat and we like to eat all kinds of food!  Thank you for your continued support of this site. We love all our fans. Have a great weekend and we will see you back here next week.

This is one of my favorite poems for Mom:

Mother's Day

I always think of my Mom when I read the poem above and I know she is waiting for me in heaven.  This is a link to my Mama’s Cathead Biscuits that was always one of my favorite recipes from her.

Weekly Food Tip:

Toast oats in 350 degree oven 10 minutes before adding to recipes.  Makes delicious oatmeal cookies and really brings out the flavor in breads.

Weekly Food Fact:

Ever wonder how “twinkies” got their name?   Hostess Twinkies were invented in 1931 by James Dewar, manager of Continental Bakeries’ Chicago factory. He envisioned the product as a way of using the company’s thousands of shortcake pans which were otherwise employed only during the strawberry season. Originally called Little Shortcake Fingers, they were renamed Twinkie Fingers, and finally “Twinkies.”

Weekly Quote:

“A Mother’s love for her child is like nothing else in the world.  It knows no law, no pity,  it dares all things, and crushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path. ~~ Agatha Christie

I am excited to be spending Saturday with my girls. We are making our annual trip to Amish Country.  We always check out all the fresh produce, go to the bulk food store and have lunch. I plan to feature our trip and Amish recipes on a future weekly pot luck.

We would like to wish all the beautiful mothers around the world a Happy Mother’s Day and hope your day is filled with love.

5 Favorite Blogger Recipes for this week:  Just click on the name of the recipe to go to the site and check it out. You will find lots of other good recipes on these sites, too. This week we are featuring Easter recipes.

CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER EASTER EGGS from Mommy’s Kitchen Blog

SKILLET CANDIED SWEET POTATOES from Everyday Mom’s Meals Blog

LEMON CRAZY/WACKY CAKE from Sweet Little Bluebird Blog

TIP OF THE DAY

Since Easter is here we are talking about eggs today!  Brown eggs have thicker shells than white ones and this makes them better for boiling because they don’t crack as easily.  Use hard cooked eggs within 1 week whether peeled or in the shell.  If you find an egg with a double yoke it is perfectly safe to eat. (If you find a double yoke this is said to be good luck.)  An egg with a blood spot on the yoke is safe, too. (It is just a mistake on the part of the chicken. lol) To test an egg for freshness,  put the egg in a bowl of water and if it sinks and lays on its side, it is fresh.   If the egg floats to the top it is not a good egg! White chickens lay white eggs.  Brown chickens lay brown eggs. Want more information about eggs? Check out the USDA website with information on eggs from Farm to Table.

FUN FACTS:

Egg rolling on the lawn of the White House dates as far back as 1878 under President Rutherford B. Hayes and is held on the Monday after Easter. This year marks the 136th annual White House Easter Egg Roll on the South lawn. Want to know more about this event?  Check out the Annual White House Easter Egg Roll.

WEEKLY QUOTE:

I think of the garden after the rain;
And hope to my heart comes
singing,
At morn the cherry-blooms will be white,
And the Easter bells be
ringing!  ~Edna Dean Proctor, “Easter Bells”

From our family to yours – May Easter happiness dwell in you and may you and your family be blessed with peace, happiness and joy this holiday season.
