When it gets hot out, we do a lot of stuff in the crockpot and on the bbq. I've been wanting shishkabobs lately but don't have the energy to make them and DH keeps forgetting to buy more propane for the bbq.

Stuff I like to make in my crock pot
soups (potato, chicken taco, corn chowder)
Tatertot casserole
spaghetti sauce
roast with potatoes and carrots
chicken and rice

I have been meaning to try a lasagna in the crockpot too but just haven't gotten around to it.

My cousin makes pizzas on her bbq. I've never tried it but it seems like it would be good. I believe she puts tin foil down and just tosses them on there until everything is ready.

Thurs: DH's "graduation" so a quick dinner before we meet up

Let me know if you want any of the recipes. I've never made the first two, so I'll let you know how they are.

How did the chicken with peanut noodles come out?
magsnemma replied to miob's response:
It was really pretty good. A little gluey, but I think I overcooked the noodles and I could've thinned out the sauce a little. But it was tasty. In case you're interested...
