It is still the end of May but suddenly my part of the country feels like the dog days of August.  It’s been the sort of hot, muggy pool weather you associate with summer.  I will not complain about it.  After the ice age we experienced this winter, I’ll gladly take the 90 degree weather!

One of the biggest troubles with heat waves is you just don’t feel like cooking.  Instead I gravitate towards grilling our dinners.  But I truly believed I singed my eyebrows from the blast of heat the emanated from the grill grates the last time I grilled our hot dogs!  No thank you!  Which brings me to the crock pot.

The crock pot is just about one of the best inventions ever.  Who’s with me on this one?  It’s simple, effective and you can make just about anything.  I love bbq chicken in the summertime.  Instead of grilling it, I made it in my crock pot.  I added fresh oranges and orange juice with a bit of maple syrup for sweetness.   I love the simplicity of this chicken.  The taste was fresh and delicious.  Forget the bbq chicken on the grill!  It’s the cock pot all the way!

I think I’m going to invest in another crock pot.  I can  keep one cooking all summer long!
