My sweet nephew, Randy will be moving to his new mini-farm in a few weeks and I will only be cooking for him a couple of times a week, I hope. Twelve miles in a long way to drive for a five course meal everyday. Edie and his dad gave him a red crock pot for Christmas so he would have dinner waiting when he came in from work. Providing he put something in it before he left home. Plus a huge cookbook for crock pot cooking. He was a little overwhelmed with the cookbook. He will be fine after he overcomes his fear of words like, saute', thyme, rosemary, etc.
He has ask me to put together a few of his favorite recipes that he enjoys now suitable for crock pot cooking. I'm happy to do that. However to get him started I thought I should start with an appliance he is familiar with, the microwave. How does this sound?
Pork and Beans
no printed recipe required
1 tin of Pork and Beans
2 slices buttered bread
Open tin, place contents on plate. Cover lightly with Saran Wrap. Heat in microwave for 2 minutes. While heating, butter bread. Enjoy.
Randy can prepare this tasty dish all by himself. He can even slice and add a hot dog later as he becomes more proficient in the kitchen.
