Okay, I got a challenge for everyone. I need help finding crockpot recipes. Here’s the thing-I’m currently working in Afghanistan. I have no access to fresh meat of any kind. Anything I can get is already cooked in the chow hall. I can access a good amount of fresh veggies, fruit is also more limited. I usually search for recipes and then attempt to substitute whatever I can, so I can’t usually follow the recipes exactly. Tomorrow, I’m going to try a recipe I found online for Spicy Chicken & Sausage soup. Of course, my chicken and sausage are already cooked, but for that recipe, I happen to have everything (I order occasionally from NetGrocer because they ship to APOs, but they won’t ship dairy, frozen, etc. over here).
I’m looking for ANY kind of recipes. Main course, dessert, soup, etc. Anything! I love to cook, but we don’t have access to normal cooking products, etc. I ordered the crockpot from Amazon (big, oval one), and we have a hotplate. Someone here already had a big pot, and I just got some fry pans in the mail from Amazon today.
So, that’s my challenge. As I said above, no access to uncooked meats, nor eggs, flour, etc. When I go home on R&R soon, I’ll pick up some flour and other basics. I have some canned tomato paste, canned tomatoes, some “cream of” soups”, and some uncooked noodles and rice. I can get my hands on sugar, salt, pepper. Things like lettuce, tomatoes, raw onions, peppers, I can get pretty regularly. They have Polish Sausage frequently, and the Italian Sausage, which is pretty good here, not so frequently.
