I loves me some kitchen appliances, but I'm pretty shitty at actually using them.  My goal this month is to use a different underutilized kitchen gadget (for cooking purposes).

I broke out my dusty, never used Crockpot[1], washed it, set it on a hopefully nonflammable counter and dumped crap in it.

Crap used:
- 2 sliced and chopped sweet potatoes.
- 1 can of black beans
- 1 can of condensed cream of chicken soup
- 1 can of water
- a bunch of minced garlic

Notes to myself: Next time, mix up the soup and water first, it is looking grizzly.  Also, rinse black beans, as the last look was looking...grey and not so appetizing.

We will see if something edible comes to fruition.

When I actually go shopping and plan, I'd like to make:
Thai Tofu Veggie Curry
Chicken and Sweet Potato Stew

I think I'll dig up some side dish recipes, as I'm trying to eat my fruits and veggies, and anything that makes that part easier, I need help with.

[1] Yes, a Rival Crockpot, no generic slowcooker here! Just what was on sale at Target the week I got the slowcooker hair up my ass.
