Great, you're back. You ruined dinner using method 17, 42, and 29. You're going to love method #36. It's a fix it and forget kinda ruin. It's really a method and not a recipe. You can apply this technique to many family favorites.
Today, I'm ruining a whole chicken and chopped vegetables. You can choose a different crock pot meal, but whatever it is make sure you put it in nice and early, by 7 am or so. Make sure to have a busy day. Super busy. Think a lot about how smart you were to put dinner in the crock pot before your day got going.
Here's where the ruin comes in. Plug it in, but give it a little pull. Make sure it's not all the way plugged in. Too far in the plug and you will not ruin your dinner.
9+ hours later and things are perfect. Raw chicken and crunchy fresh vegetables. You ruined dinner. You might as well give the neighbors a call, see what they're having.
