I made myself a good no-kitchen dinner last night.  I bought a chicken split in half.  I seasoned with salt and put it in a crockpot with fresh herbs (rosemary, thyme, parsley), just throwing the sprigs in on top.  It was yummy!  That will be lunch today as well.  I ate it with a dinner roll, raw veggies from the salad bar, and some fruit.

HH, I love doing whole chickens in my crockpot.  Easy and yummy.

Tonight was sort of Irish/Mexican fusion.  Corned beef street tacos and roasted potatoes seasoned with garlic and Tajin.

I am planning to make onion soup tonight. Instead of Italian or French bread, I’m using some home made burger buns that are a bit to small for burgers.

Will you roast the onions?  I loooove homemade French onion soup. Now I want to make it this weekend, minus the bread and now I cannot have Daiya either (They added potato)... but still. Sounds delightful.

Does anyone have a really good use for coconut flour?  I bought a bunch but everything I try turns out unpalatable, even with extra soaking time.  I don’t want to throw it out because it was expensive and it is safe for me to eat.

I Carmelized the onion before putting it in the pot. Really simple recipe in the Instant Pot.

But in future, I will use French stick bread.

What's the Instant Pot recipe for that?  Mine is to put an onion, with skin, on a baking sheet in the oven at 200C/4000F for almost an hour.  It's time consuming -- and well worth it.

Not instant pot, but I do caramelized onions in one of my slow cookers.

I'm kind of obsessed with caramelized onions at maybe an unhealthy level.

I fill up (completely fill) one of my larger oval slow cookers with sliced yellow onions, salt them a bit and add a tablespoon or two of butter.  Pretty sure I have done it without the butter just as well though.  Cook on low and stir every once in a while until they look like I want them to basically.  After they get cooked down quite a bit, I use a couple wooden chopsticks to prop the lid so that some of the liquid will evaporate.

I fill as small pyrex container and keep in the fridge.  The rest I pack into freezer bags and freeze flat.  I put them in all sorts of things.  Almost every grilled or hot sandwich I make has caramelized onions on it and I eat a lot of sandwiches.

I have two recipes that might work for you.  I will start a new thread.

Wow Janelle, what a great idea, and sounds delicious.  If only my cranky stomach agreed.  :tongue:

That sounds amazing, Janelle!  I love caramelised onions.  Right now I'm on a sautéed mushroom kick... plain, with truffle salt, with Earth Balance, with balsamic vinegar... they all taste great.  They're my quick lunch of choice lately.

Sausage gravy and biscuits.  Which DSD apparently likes far more than I remembered.

Tacos for Dh and Ds, taco meat, a bit of cheese, salsa, and a dollop of Greek yogurt for me.

I looked up Ropa Vieja.  The translation is “old clothes.”  😂😂😂
