My Review:

I was intrigued by the idea of cooking Asian food in my slow cooker.  I use my slow cooker all the time (Five Easy Crockpot Recipes, Slow Cooker Short Ribs), but I had never used it to cook any kind of Asian food.

I tried the recipe for Sweet and Sour chicken, but substituted a pork tenderloin:

The meal turned out so tender and flavorful. My family loved it!! This recipe was a huge hit and I will be sure to make it again. The directions were easy to follow and I didn’t have to adjust any times.

With categories as diverse as Ditch the Takeout, 5 Ingredients or Less, One Pot & Skillet, Skip The Stove-Top, Fiery Favorites, Meatless Mondays, Sensational Soups and Delectable Desserts, we will have new recipes to try for a long time to come!! I think I will try Lemon Chicken next, followed by Summer Rolls with Glazed Brown Sugar Pork and Mandarin Orange Cheesecake.

Is your mouth watering yet? I highly recommend Asian Slow Cooker Recipes. Even if you’re a beginner, there are plenty of helpful hints and tips. Give it a try!!

Change Is Painful, But …

change is painful

A lot of changes have happened for my family in the past year. The biggest change happened a little over a month ago. I quit my job and Art, Bud and I packed up the dogs and moved to Oregon. We are currently living with Art’s parents, while looking for jobs and housing.

Even though this was a planned move, it was still a gigantic leap of faith and has been very scary. Moving away from almost all our friends and everything we were familiar with was painful.  There were lots of tears and sleepless nights.

Let’s face it, most change is painful. The process of metamorphosis, as shown in the photo above, can’t be easy for the poor caterpillar. I’m pretty sure Dr. Jekyll didn’t consider it a party when he transformed into Mr. Hyde.  And what about poor Eustace Scrubb in The Voyage of the ‘Dawn Treader’ ?

In the book, Eustace stumbles upon a huge treasure, which he decides to keep for himself. He falls asleep with a gold bracelet on his boy arm, and wakes up with the bracelet cutting off the circulation of his dragon leg? What? A dragon leg? Eustace realizes that his greed has trapped him and he begins to cry.

Aslan arrives, and leads Eustace to a well, at the center of a garden.

Eustace looks at the well and wants to get into the water to soothe the pain in his leg, but Aslan says he will have to be undressed first.  Eustace realizes that he is a dragon and that dragons have skins like snakes which could be shed. With his new claws, Eustace begins tearing at his dragon skin. He peels off one layer only to discover another nasty, scaly, and rough layer underneath. And then another. After three layers, he realizes it’s vain — he will never make himself clean or get rid of his pain or shed the nasty skin. He allows Aslan to help him “undress.”

The very first tear he made was so deep that I thought it had gone right into my heart. And when he began pulling the skin off, it hurt worse than anything I’ve ever felt. The only thing that made me able to bear it was just the pleasure of feeling the stuff peel off. . . . – C.S. Lewis – Voyage of the Dawntreader

Should we avoid the pain? I don’t think so. We could have stayed in Napa, but the high prices were making it more and more difficult to make ends meet. Oregon is much more affordable and I know everything will happen according to God’s plan.

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says theLord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. – Jeremiah 29:11
