winter for me is lots of sleep and lazy cooking with the crock pot. one of my favorite meals to make is pork ribs. so easy to just make a mix of sauces and pepper to make them. about an inch in the bottom of the pot add the ribs stir them till coated and set on high for about 4 hours. now toast up some sweet potato fries in the toaster oven. add a pbr and your ready to feast.
