Like the lady who used her slow-cooker every day for 365 days;

What would it be for you? What cooking vessel or food type could you do for an entire year?
For me, it would probably be soup. All kinds of soups with different breads every night. Yes, I could do that.

  1. Potatoes. I could easily eat (and enjoy) potatoes every day. It would be a disaster, healthwise, but I'd love every minute of it.

      wouldn't have to be -- potatoes are actually quite healthy -- that's why the Irish (and sailors) have been able to survive on them exclusively for such long periods of time.

      1. re: tcamp

        Yup, potatoes are one of the most nutritious and healthiest things you can eat... too bad we slather in so much sour cream, cheese or we always end up deep frying them. but just some simple roasted potatoes with some olive oil and herbs is not bad at all. Or mashed potatoes if you skip the cream and butter and opt for skim milk.

          You're right, they are nutritious but I'm an insulin dependent diabetic so they're just too carb-full for daily consumption. I steamed some cut up yellow potatoes the other day, then grilled with mushrooms and cauliflower and olive oil. That was quite yummy.

      2. A different fritter (oh I'm bad) every day, some sweet, some savory!

            I use it almost every day as it is.

            1. Maybe a bit of a cop-out as it's not usually the main event, but I could eat rice every day. I spent 2 months in SE Asia and managed to avoid pho, pad thai, loads of good stuff, because I can't say no to rice.

              Risotto, paella, sushi, fried rice, pilau, sticky rice, brown rice, wild rice mmm...
