Slow Cooker Carnitas
This recipe makes enough meat for a teenage boy and 5 friends. :) Double the amount of all seasoning and rub it all into the roast (don't just sprinkle or coat it). After cooking, break up the meat into large chunks/shreds on a cookie sheet and put it under the broiler for a few minutes. Serve on warm corn tortilla with diced sweet onions, cilantro, jalapeno slices and some salsa.

Slow Cooker Beef Stew I
This is a fine basic recipe that can easily be tailored or improved for your taste and preference. While it is tempting to throw everything in the crock pot before rushing out the door on busy days, the stew will benefit tremendously from browning the meat and deglazing the bits with wine or broth. Two more cloves of garlic wouldn't hurt, either. :)

Potato Leek Soup III
My changes to the recipe: Reduce butter to 1/2 cup (1 stick); reduce heavy cream to 1-1/2 cups of half and half; increase leeks to three; add 1/2 pound of hot Italian sausage (cooked and crumbled). Served with a fresh loaf of french bread. It was a very rich and carb-heavy meal, but good for an early autumn evening.
