    I also scored on a couple bags of roasted chilis, some organic Palisade peaches, local sweet corn, and a couple of Grand Junction tomatoes since my garden tomatoes are puny due to the cool spring and early summer. I do have a bumper garden crop of eggplant and and good bunch of peppers. It's a good season for eating. Being mostly off meat the variety is refreshing.

    Dinner is grilled tomato, cheese and green chili sandwich, sweet potato fries, and melon.

    I made Butternut squash soup and what seems like the 100th batch of spaghetti sauce. I am very close to giving away tons of tomatoes, I cannot keep up! It has been a banner year for tomatoes, and quite decent year for peppers. i have stuff a bunch of green peppers.

    I have a bazillion tomatillos so I guess we'll be making green salsa. I didn't expect them to be so prolific.

    I bought a crockpot after a friend wrote an article about crock pot shredded chicken for the food network with the idea that you cook up a couple of chicken breasts on Sunday and then use it all week for various things. We didn’t do that but we did cook up a bunch of Drumsticks with some garlic, onions, carrots, potatoes and spices. A good friend is coming for dinner in a few minutes. It smells fantastic and SO says the chicken is falling off the bone so I think we have a winner.

    We also have more of old lady neighbor’s tomatoes since she still is t home to eat them and they keep getting ripe. So I made another Caprese salad.

    Nice idea on the shredded chicken! We tend to use dark meats, too, because they are more flavorful.

    My DS has a great recipe for shredded pork--you put the pork shoulder in the pot with a can of Dr. Pepper, I think... can't remember which soft drink he uses! It comes out great! then you can just finish it off with your favorite barbecue sauce.

    I make bone broth in the crockpot all the time. I love making a good broth or stock from bone marrow bones, oxtails, and with a couple of short ribs thrown in... When it is done and has chilled, I LOVE how gelatanous it gets!! I just believe it has to be SO much healthier than boxed broth. It's a super base for so many soups an stews.

    This reminds me of “proposal chicken” a recipe sworn to bring a proposal from one’s boyfriend for the poor ladies waiting for such on The Wedding Bee.

    Put a whole chicken in the crock pot with…was it Pepsi? Some kind of soft drink anyway. Cook. Service to boyfriend. He proposes.Everyone lives happily ever after.
