Well, I posted less for Crocktober than I'd planned, because of no internet access for 2.5 weeks. Oh well, I had fun posting the ones I did, 3 or 4 different threads?, and hope they were helpful to a few people. Feedback was generally good & positive in the comments, so I will take that as a 'yes'.

Vali I am going to back to Stephanie O'Dea's 7 recipes in one post for whole chicken, since our local store had whole fryers on sale for 69 cents per pound. Your description sounds very good tho, too. Yum. The part about living alone now made me wonder; hope you are doing okay.

I fixed my second ever whole chicken in my crock pot this afternoon...and it came out soooo good. emoticon I more or less used the recipe that someone had posted a link to a couple of weeks ago, just modified a little. I read on some web site about rubbing olive oil on the chicken before cooking it in the oven so I decided to try that on the one I was cooking in the crock pot. I rubbed salt, pepper and paprika on the chicken as the posted recipe said to do. I also peeled an apple and put it inside the chicken before I cooked it. I was hoping that would keep it moister and maybe give it some extra flavor. It was so delicious and since I now live alone, I've got lunches for most of the week in my freezer now.

I think I'm going to try a recipe I found for applesauce meatloaf in my crock pot next. I'll let you all know how it turns out.

There was much rejoicing!

Question of the day: What month begins tomorrow?

Nooooo! Wrong! Tomorrow is Crocktober!!!

I got the terminology and idea from Stephanie O'Dea, The Crock Pot Lady. She is fantastic. I don't remember what she does, it will sure be interesting to follow her this month, but instead of posting a weekly recipe I'll be posting seasonal Autumn crock pot recipes for the team.
