This meal was made using my Crock Pot and many more recipes using it will posted in the near future. On October 13, a shorted feeder cable fire caused a manhole explosion in the street in front of my building. We did not have power for 16 hours and the gas was not restored in our building due to some safety tests the building did not pass. Instead of fixing the gas problem, (for financial reasons I presume) the landlord decided to convert the entire building to electric stoves. This means over 70 units need to have electrical wiring installed before the new electric stoves are set up in each apartment. I am really bummed out since we love to cook and we are in this situation for about another month or so. On October 21, our gas stove was removed and we have been using the Microwave, Rice Cooker and Crock Pot to get by. This upcoming week we are purchasing a George Foreman Grill thanks to a gift from my mother-in-law. If we have enough money left, we may also get an electric skillet. I created this super easy recipe using the Crock Pot and it was so delicious.
