Tater Tots(R) Casserole
This only received so-so reviews at the table. I followed the recipe as written without the Montreal Seasoning because we didn't have any. Prep time was quick and easy. I didn't like that the sauce was gray. It just looked unappetizing. I mistakenly mixed the meat and sauce together before putting it in the pan and actually felt it could have used a little more sauce. Overall between the color and the really heavy Worcestershire taste I just wasn't fond if it. My teen son, on the other hand, though it was excellent and finished off the leftovers the next day. I don't think I'll make this version again.

Vegetable Cheese Soup I
I think this is a decent start for a good soup but it didn't wow us. I have leftovers that haven't been touched. I did not have creamed corn so I added canned corn and I used salsa con queso as another reviewer suggested. I like the combination of corn, potato and carrots and the kick the salsa con queso gave it. At the end of the cooking time I mashed the potatoes and carrots a bit in an attempt to thicken it up a little. The overall taste was ok, but it needed something to liven it up and I'm not a good enough (or experimental) cook to determine what it needed. My daughter didn't like the corn, my son thought it needed meat. I will give this one another chance using less broth, a few spices and adding chicken and we'll see what we get.

Kalua Pig in a Slow Cooker
We have made this more than once and love it. I typically use a pork shoulder. Until just recently I was making this with regular sea salt, but I now have some Hawaiian salt purchased just to make this recipe. I wonder if that will change the taste any? Great for football games, birthday parties and New Year's Eve. You won't be disappointed with this tenderness and flavor of this pork.
