Sunday Suppers: One Dish Wonders

We don’t own a crockpot, big shocker there. But there are plenty of times we don’t want to mess with multiple courses or a zillion pots.

Here are some of our favorite one-dish menus.

Shrimp Risotto

I know, there should be more shrimp on the plate

Kale, Spinach and Bread Casserole

Cheese makes everything better

Stuffed Squash with An Indian Twist

A rare sighting of the elusive spotted squash

Red Curry with Shrimp and Green Beans

Break out the company chopsticks

This blog attempts to collect some of the things I try to create with food and booze. Sometimes I succeed and sometimes I fail. My hope is to entertain and maybe help people think a little harder about what they decide to eat and drink.

    No crockpot? That is a bit of a surprise! I won our crockpot on a photo contest. The risotto looks amazing.

  2. Why no crockpot? I have to say it is not my go-to source of a meal, but I do like it for a few things. Like soup or stew. Mostly because it is safer to leave on all day when you go to work than a burner.

    “Stuffed Squash with An Indian Twist” ~ This is wonderful, I’m always up for new squash recipes.

    I love using my slow cooker for simmering dishes like 3-bean veggie chili, curried lentil soup, etc. . . . leaving me free to do other things (like enjoy an extended happy hour). 😀

  5. I’m surprised you two don’t own a crockpot. It would leave more time for drinking and gardening for you!

    These all look wonderful. (Ah … see what I did there?)

    The shrimp looks wonderful. If it makes you feel better we don’t have a crockpot either.

    Mmmm! Love me some shrimp with most anything!

  9. I love my crockpot.. but forget about it until late afternoon, lol. So these will be handy in the weeks to come! I love when everyone’s done in one pot!

    Helloooo bread casserole. I need to try that one out.

    I still remember that shrimp risotto, one of my favorites in your site

  12. Hubby objected to having a crock pot for years. I finally bought one early in the summer to make tomato sauce, so I didn’t have to watch it on the stovetop…
    He was so taken with it, he ordered a fancy new one, with a timer 😉
