I’m trying out six new crockpot recipes over the next two weeks from the blog A Year of Slow Cooking. September is crazy with canning, four children on separate soccer teams, and homework. I used this weekend to shop, prep, chop, and freeze all the ingredients. Hopefully, I’ll be able to throw things together after breakfast or lunch and have dinner ready when we’re ready. That’s the plan anyway.

FHE Treat: Fresh Peach Pie

Chopped Cilantro
Cornbread Muffins

Korean Ribs
Thai Coconut  Soup
Coconut Rice

Stew over
Oven Baked Brown Rice

    I think you should do a follow up on how the new crock pot recipes turned out. I am curious as to what your family thought. They look pretty tasty to me.

    Hi Kate:

    Wonderful meeting you and your husband at the dinner this evening. What lovely people. And you have a farm too. I’m still wishing on a star that someday I can follow in your footsteps.

    Great recipes. We’re going to try them out up here. We made up a red enchilada sauce to use up some of our tomatoes yesterday. It turned out really good. I’ll share it if you want to give it a go with your out of the garden tomatoes.

    Congratulations on your book. I’ll be looking for it so I can pick it up and read it. I’m so happy for you. What a wonderful thing to have all your hard work finally see the light of day. Just wonderful.

    All the best to you and your husband and your family.

    David, it was so nice to meet you and your mom in person. It’s easy to see that your sincerity is a family trait.

    I’d love to try out your enchilada sauce recipe. I have a box of garden tomatoes sitting in my kitchen at this moment, and I plan to pick more tomorrow. You can leave it in the comments here or email it to me at kate (at) katrinapalmer (dot) com.

    Thanks again for your encouragement and support. Good luck to you and your family as the soccer season really takes off.

    I watched your show last night and it was great. Will you post the recipe for the cilantro lime rice, the freezer burritos and the virgin pina colada? Can you give me directions on how to find them?

    I’m glad you enjoyed the show. I’ll be posting the recipes on Monday. I’ll be sure to let you know how to find them.
