    Crock pot Cajun shrimp. I like the idea of slow cooking the shrimp to see if that makes them super tender and cooked just right. We’ll see how it turns out. I’ve never spent an hour cooking shrimp before…

    JP1: I would think shrimp would be overcooked and tough, so I will be interested to hear how this works out. Hoping I'm wrong!

    A friend was thinking the same thing. But actually they turned out great. Since they are cooking so slowly it's easy to see when they are just done. I'm not sure they were any better than if I had cooked them in a pan though.

    Slow cooker whole chicken. We did chicken legs last week and they were so good I wanted to try a whole chicken. I put garlic powder, paprika and oregano under the skin so hopefully it will be just as good. The legs were super juicy, fall off the bone amazing.

    My only concern is that I was on the phone for work nonstop all day until 2:45. The recipe says 4 hours so hopefully that’s accurate. Otherwise dinner will be a bit later than usual…

    Husband is out grilling chicken thighs now for a week of good eating!! I made the sauce this morning. Yum, yum. Fresh corn still coming into the fruit stand and I made Greek potato salad.

    In my time line it's not quite soup season, but cool enough to do a little more kitchen cooking. White bean and corn soup with fresh area sweet corn cut from the cob. The recipe calls for pancetta. I like to have an assortment of frozen soups for hot lunches in cold weather so maybe it's time to start the supply.

    The NY Times today had an article today about creamy soups they recommended. Several sounded good so I saved them to try out over the next month or two as we get to soup weather here. (It was 80 today so still a bit warm at this point but soon…)

    Last night was "lazy lasagna" which is basically just meat, frozen ravioli, mozzarella, and marinara sauce all thrown together in a pan and baked. Tonight, we are going out to eat. Nothing fancy but not sure where though.
