Let's face it, it's hot, really really really hot outside. And it isn't even July or August yet. What am I doing to keep the heat out of the house? Cooking outside among other things. Yes, I have rediscovered the Crockpot! I was never a crockpot user but now the idea of using less energy to cook dinner and not having that heat in the house is simply wonderful. On the menu for tonight, pork chops cooked in seasonings, onions, garlic and butter. Yummy! It's so easy that I will probably go ahead and invest in another one.
