I love to make big suppers - making 2, 3 or even 4 times what the recipes says. Then I freeze the extra and we have "fast food" ready for those crazy afternoon/nights when I can't cook (doctor appts, etc.).
My 4-qt crockpot that we received as a wedding present just wasn't cutting it anymore. You can't double or quadruple a recipe and still fit it into a 4-qt crockpot. Hence, my new 7 quart! YAY!
I broke my new crockpot in on Monday. The first thing I made was Southwestern Black Bean Soup. I've made it many times in the past, it is yummy. But I'm making much MORE this time than I ever have in the past!
When I was rinsing the black beans off before I put them in the crockpot, Daniel was watching.
He looked very interested...but confused...
Daniel: "What are we having for to eat?"
Me: "We're going to have soup tonight!"
Daniel: "Are we having blueberry soup?!?!"
