"Sometimes you get the bear, and sometimes the bear gets you." I love that saying.
Today the bear got me -- in the kitchen. I can honestly say that almost never happens. If I believed in bad karma I would say it was that.
The Crock Pot Enchilada Casserole from Saving Dinners burned. It burned in my Crock Pot. As I was putting it all in, I thought, "Hmmm, there's really not much liquid in this dish." Well, I should have listened to myself. I'm really baffled as to how that recipe got in a cookbook. Well, as I said at my Crock Pot Festival, slow cookers cook hotter today than they used to. Hot enough to burn. I had to take it out of the Crock Pot after three hours. And the edges were charred. I hate to think what would have happened had I left the house for six hours. Eeewwwww!
The Southwestern Slaw was way too spicy. And I cut the cayenne in half. I don't know how that recipe got four stars. I give it two at the most.
I'm not sure why I'm sharing all this. I did say I'd let you know what I thought of the Crock Pot Casserole. I guess I'm saying that we all have our days. Like I said, "Sometimes you get the bear...."
