Trial #2 with the freezer/crock pot cooking was sausage and peppers (recipe here). Sadly, unlike trial #1 (coconut curry chicken), I probably won’t keep this one in my recipe book. It was… okay. Ish. Quite acidic, and the consistency isn’t the crisp, dry sausage that you like to get in sausage-and-peppers, but more, well, crock pot-y. Moist.
Also, unlike the coconut curry chicken, this one looks like it might only make 4 or so servings, even with rice. (Maybe only 3 Marc-sized servings.) We had enough for dinner for both of us with Marc taking seconds, and I’ll have enough for lunch tomorrow, and then there’s probably enough left for Marc’s lunch, and that’s it.
*shrugs* Can’t win ’em all. I’ll keep “sausage and peppers” on my list of things to make when I’ve got time to actually cook the sausage properly in the frying pan, but it won’t be on my list of crock pot meals. Oh, well. Tomorrow: cranberry chicken.
