    I went to a Christmas party where a Crock Pot was being used to simmer Apple Cider.

    YUMM.

    ...it's simmering away as you read this:

    Polish Sausage & Cabbage

    Ingredients

    1 1/2 lbs Polish sausage, sliced or cubed
    1/2 a cabbage head, coarsely sliced
    1 small potato, peeled and sliced
    1 large onion, sliced
    14 oz. chicken broth
    1/2 tsp. caraway seeds
    salt and pepper to taste
    Preparation

    Place sliced cabbage in crockpot. Toss with diced potato, salt and caraway
    seeds. Add sliced onion and Polish sausage. Pour chicken broth over all;
    stir lightly. Cover and cook on Low setting for 8 to 10 hours (on HIGH
    setting for 2 to 4 hours). This dish is delicious served with mustard,
    horseradish and boiled new potatoes. Makes 4 servings (about 3 1/2 quarts).

    I guess I'll be sleeping outside tonight. ;f

    I did that too. I was grocery shopping on a very cold day just before Christmas and a nice lady was giving out samples of hot cider. I used her recipe in my crock pot and it was delicious. Warms you right up, (especially if you add a splash of rum ;f) and it makes the kitchen smell nice too.

    Apple cider
    Torani Carmel Flavored Syrup (which is also great in coffee)
    Cinnamon

    The cider will take a while to get warm so depending on how much time you have, put on high if you need it quicker, or low if you have more time. If you do use high, be careful not to serve it too hot. I don't really measure the quantities of the carmel syrup, I just throw some in and then taste it to see if it needs more (wait until it is warm though, the flavors are stronger then). Don't add the cinnamon until the mixture gets warm as the cinnamon won't mix in well cold.

    But when I am really hungry, it's the other way around. It is easy to find something I like, but it won't be cheap once I'm done! ;f

    My friends and I had a few (aka several) beers last night and decided to make deer burger chili in my crock pot. It is so good. The problem is we just sorta threw a bunch of stuff in, probably couldn't do it again. I guess that's what is great about crock pots, everything comes out GOOD.

    gonna do BBQ chicken next.

    Polska Kielbasa and cabbage/kraut is great, but I've made three batches so far and it's getting a tad old. That, and I tend to go through Beano tablets like there's no tomorrow ;f and that stuff is not exactly cheap.
