Usually I pick out a random cookbook based on the appeal the cover has to me and the time of day I am making my selection – the closer to lunchtime, the more likelihood there is a picture of a plate of actual food on the cover.
This week, I started flipping through a couple of books for an interesting recipe. I think I found one. From the Gooseberry Patch collection, Super-Fast Slow Cooking. Hey, I don’t write the titles! Did you know that there are crock pot recipes for sandwiches, breakfasts, and desserts?? I had no idea.
2 8-oz cans tomato sauce
1/4 t garlic powder
1/2 C water
1 1/4 lbs. ground beef
1/2 C long-cooking rice
2 T onion, chopped
1/2 t salt
1/4 t pepper
In a slow cooker, mix together tomato sauce, garlic powder, and water. Combine remaining ingredients in a large bowl; mix well. Shape into 24 pine cone-shaped balls; arrange in slow cooker. Cover and cook on low setting for 7 to 8 hours. Makes 4 servings.
See, you were thinking you’d have to start in the woods, searching out a pine tree, just like I did. Sounds delicious, though, doesn’t it.
Call us and ask for item 722022 (they promise me it will be on line soon).
