Get a pork roast -- big old pork loin, and put that in the crock pot with about a cup or less of water. (You want like an inch of water on all sides of the roast) and let that cook for about 2 hours before you add 2 cans of Golden Mushroom Soup. Golden Mushroom soup can kind of be hard to find in stores, but make sure you get the Golden and not just Mushroom variety. Let it cook for the full 8 hour time for a roast - you're welcome to include more fresh mushcrooms chopped for the dish, or even onion or peppercorns if you like. Then, cook some rice. Eat the pork roast and rice covered in the tangy golden mushroom sauce. Serve iwth a nice green veggie on the side. NUMM! This is my favorite dish of all time from my crock pot.

Mmm, that sounds tasty! I will have to make sure Michael will eat mushroom soup, as he doesn't eat the raw kind. Even if he doesn't, I might make it anyway (fix him PB&J that night, hehehe) because I happen to love mushroom. :D

You might like my vegetarian cauliflower and cheese casserole then. ;)

1 big bag of cauliflower
1 carton of nonfat plain yogurt
1 tablespoon of mustard
1 sprinkling (to taste) of shredded cheddar cheese
and bread crumbs to sprinkle on top.

Just steam the cauliflower til it's nearly tender, and stick it in a casserole dish covered in:

The yogurt which you've recently mixed with cheese shreds and the mustard. It will be tangy yet creamy.

Put the casserole dish under the broiler in your oven for about 15 minutes, watching it every five minutes. Add the bread crumbs to it just as its browning ... take it out and eat up!

The only people who can't eat this are vegans, who don't eat animal by-products as well as not eating meat. However, I think there's a special yogurt (I know there's special cheese) that even vegans can pick up in order to make this dish. My long-time friend was a strict vegetarian, and wouldn't even eat broth in any of her meals, so I've learned many wonderful recipes from her.

The great thing about Campbell's golden mushroom soup is that there's like specks of mushrooms in it -- and it's "golden" because it's a chicken stock with tomato in it. So if he can get by with the underlying taste of mushroom which is basically nonexistant, then you both should be able to really enjoy this. Because it doesn't quite taste mushroomy -- it's a flavor that's really all its own and very hard to pinpoint. But omg so yum!:D
