    Have you ever tried Mueseli?
    “Some people will tell you that slow is good – but I’m here to tell you that fast is better. I’ve always believed this, in spite of the trouble it’s caused me. Being shot out of a cannon will always be better than being squeezed out of a tube. That is why God made fast motorcycles, Bubba…”

    I just read up on Muesli, and it looks tasty I'll have to experiment with it, I've never even heard of it before. Thank you Mardy

    Obie - I have all kinds of recipes I've been meaning to record in here. Stuffed Kyuuei is the most complicated of them all.

    No doubt it's very complex, both salty and sweet, with a delightful fresh flavor that lingers.

    Oh, and it's delicious, of course.

    It's an acquired taste though. Not everyone likes it, by any means.

    Some people just don't know what's good.

    So... back to really talking about food... what do you have in the way of one-pot meals?

    Clever mouse.. I have a few recipes I've been meaning to preserve that are one potters.. I'm in love with setting something around breakfast in the crockpot to cook all day long for dinner, but I have a few others I'm rather fond of. I'm also posting up some stuff that you can make and freeze so that you can just pull out homemade later on in the week when there's less time.

    I'll dig them up and post them on here this weekend

    Category: Slow cooker.

    Simple 15 Bean Recipe
    Calories: Ham + Beans
    Source: Me!

    Total time: 24+ hours

    1 package of dried 15 bean soup (toss the stupid ham flavoring packet they give you)
    Leftover ham cut into pieces and the ham hock
    Spices you enjoy (for my recipe: Kick'n Chicken grinder, sea salt, pepper, cumin, cayenne, paprika, lemon pepper, onion salt, and dried parsley)
    Minced Garlic to taste, and 1/4th of an onion if you don't have onion salt

    Fill the crock pot between 1/4th and 1/3rd fill of hot water from the sink. Pour the spices into the water and dissolve them as best as possible. Pour the beans in, put the lid on, and let them soak a good 3 hours.

    After about 3 hours, turn the crock pot on low, and let them cook overnight.

    First thing in the morning, remove the lid, and put in minced garlic, onion, hocks and ham pieces. Give it a good stir, put the lid on tight again, and allow it to continue to cook the entire day.

    Serve with rice if ya want it's perfect cold weather food.
