Happy Thursday! Happy Slow Cooking Day!
Remember to go see Sandra for a bunch of totally awesome crockpotting recipes. Because (um.) this isn't one.
I got cocky.
I thought you could cook anything in a crockpot. I was very way wrong. And I don't even want to know how much money I wasted (I sent Adam off to the store and he never saves receipts) on making this catastrophe.
(don't go buy them.)
--beef bacon. or pork. whatever.
--1 1/2 pounds of fresh scallops
--juice from 2 lemons
--1 t black pepper
soak scallops in the juice from 2 lemons and a teaspoon of black pepper in the fridge for 2 hours (you will be wasting your time, btw)
very carefully and with a lot of effort wrap each scallop gingerly with a half slice of bacon. Push a toothpick lovingly into each scallop to hold the bacon in place.
Stagger the lovely little scallops in a pretty pattern in the bottom of your crockpot. Smile at your handiwork and give yourself a pat on the back for your creativity.
cover and cook on low for 2-4 hours.
(please don't really do this. please.)
This will stink up your house. You will not be happy.
And noone will come to your rescue when you whine about the icky layer of fatty disgusting slime at the bottom of your crock.
and you will be sad.
but then you will be taken out to dinner.
which makes you wonder if it was all worth it...
