I've mentioned this before, but I'm not much of a measurer or recipe follower when it comes to cooking. It's a problem I have.
I should clarify that this does not make me a professional. I just get lucky sometimes.
Although I did have a conversation analyzing the spices used on some potatoes at brunch this weekend. I felt faux-chef like and ridiculous.
I'm getting away from the point though.
The crockpot is a great kitchen tool for many reasons. First, you don't have to pay any attention to it once the ingredients are in. Second, measuring really isn't necessary (it's obvious now why I like it, right?). Third, food is delicious.
I had picked up some BBQ sauce at the store last week with the intention of BBQ chicken, crockpot style. There was no recipe I'd found or other guiding suggestions. I just felt like it.
So this morning I threw in chicken, onions, BBQ sauce, and decided to add a little honey and beer for kicks. Of course, a whole bottle of beer wasn't necessary, which is how I found myself drinking Shocktop while working on school work on a Wednesday.
I'll let you know how it all turns out (and by it, I mean the food. The school work will be fine, I'm sure.).
