Cooking mode on Sunday

I woke up Sunday morning to cook up a storm.  I usually do this when a big storm is coming in but on Sunday I was just in the mood.  First I put a deer roast in the crockpot with some seasonings, onions and celery.  Within an hour the house smelled sooooooo gooooood!!!!

Crockpot ON!

Then I decided to make “Beer Butt Chicken” without the beer and used Dr. Pepper instead.  I oil the whole chicken, covered it a spice mix called “Kickin Chickin”, and stuffed the body cavity with pineapple tidbits.

So yummy!!  I covered it with aluminum foil for the first 90 minutes and then removed the foil to let it turn golden brown and the juices were sealed in.

While that was cooking I whipped up a lettuce and pea salad, my favorite!

I made a jello/cottage cheese salad, hubby’s favorite.

Start with lime jello dissolved with one cup of water.  Let cool.  Add crushed pineapple, chopped pecans, cottage cheese and you got a great  fruit salad.

  1. My God – what talents you have in the culinary sphere. Bloody mouth watering.
    The chicken looks just so delicious – no beer, but looks like
    Dr. Pepper (what is that?) does a pretty good job. I use lemon pepper and garlic granules quite liberally on steaks, lamb and pork chops etc.
    Maybe as well as selling fresh free range eggs you should start up a lucrative “take-a-way” epicurean, country cooked food stall??
    It is a wonder that your children ever left home – ha ha!
    Move over ” Julia Child”, here comes Rita Caldwell.

    • Julia Child is way to fancy for me!! I go for comfort food. Dr. Pepper is a version of Coca Cola but sweeter. I’m fortunate also in the fact that both of my children love to cook and are constantly sending me new ideas. I’m just a country cook that uses what she normally has on hand with no fuss! Makes cooking fun instead of a chore! Hubby is an excellent cook as well.
