When we still owned our farm we not only had an amazing garden and livestock but an abundance of wild edible plants growing on the land. Since my spinal cord injury the idea of wrestling a 130 lb. lamb makes me cringe but I still want to use the land we have to expand the sources of food I grow. And edible landscaping can be very attractive.
A funny thing happened that made me decide to make my Simple Slow Cooker Pot Roast for dinner. Andi had loaned me her DVDs for “Desperate Housewives.” I’d never watched it and Andi was sure I’d find it funny. I did but a couple of lines in the series made Mr. C snicker. He didn’t laugh. He snickered. And it was then that I knew I needed to make Simple Slow Cooker Pot Roast.

Having an empty nest allows me to cook food that may be too spicy or exotic for kids. But Pete and Andi’s youngest daughter comes for dinner frequently and I sometimes I like to make meals geared specifically to the taste of an 8 year old child when she eats here. Tonight Estrella will be having dinner with us so I’m making Bowtie Pasta & Ham with Cream Sauce.

Tacos made with ground beef are good but Slow Cooker Shredded Beef Tacos are the best! The meat is tender and the seasonings give it a spicy kick. Topped with crispy lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, and sour cream it’s a Mexican meal that will have you saying “Delicioso!”

If you’re in the mood for sweet and spicy chicken you can’t go wrong with Honey Sriracha Chicken! It’s sweet but with plenty of heat. It’s a way for me to serve food that’s reminiscent of Thai food without going too hot.
