    Your ham broth would probably make a nice soup with cabbage, onions & celery

      Yep, these cookers are great!
      Not much they can not do.
      I'm in Baton Rouge Louisiana and the Red Beans are cooking.
      Throw a chunk of Pork Tasso in there and serve over rice, Yum!

      I've wanted one for a while, but since my slow cooker still works I kept putting it off. But is top of the list now.
      I was wondering about using it in the van, but was concerned with the power draw. How have you been using yours in the van? Do you know the power draw it uses?

      Don't waste your money on those things...
      Unless you want to wait forever to cook 2 cups of anything.
      Is it done yet... Nope!

      Just ran out of half & half for my coffee so I used MrsWornOut's "sugar free" creamer. Checked my glucose and up to 380. Double checked the creamer and it is sugar free EXCEPT the #2 ingredient is corn syrup

      Yup, those "sugar free" options are a nice marketing joke

      Finally, after months of patiently waiting and to lose just a couple more pounds to reach my final target weight goal...

      [​IMG]

      [​IMG]

      Breaking past my 100 pound weight loss goal was a added bonus

      I believe two key factors slowed the final pounds to a snails pace.

      1- My body's ideal weight was already pretty much met.

      2-The gaining of muscle weight was at odds with my goal. Having now reached my goal, I don't mind adding more weight. As long as it comes in the form of muscle weight

      Great Job .. i would like to lose 25 lbs ... but about 1 salad a week is all I can Choke down .. and Cooked carrots or green beans is my vegetables taste limits ... the breaded food items and fast foods are at a minimum... i just like steak , roasts , pork chops , loins , hamburgers and grilled chicken too much ... so 193 to 195 lbs is my balance , i guess ..

      All aboard the Freight Train
