Crock-pot-stew-themed apology puns sought

Yesterday my husband spent a lot of time assembling a slow-cooker stew for us to eat for dinner a few nights this week. He was about to put it in the fridge last night when I stopped him and said that it was still pretty hot, so I'll put it in the fridge before I went to bed. When I woke up this morning.....counter....crockpot.....oooooooh no. Help me apologize with some terrible puns? [more inside]

Best one-pot soup, stew, or casserole recipes for crockpots?

Looking for soup, stew, or casserole recipes where I can spend ten minutes dumping stuff in the crockpot in the morning and have a full meal ready when I get home. Something like this is ideal; the only prep is chopping an onion before setting it and forgetting it until dinnertime. No dietary preferences or restrictions, but some vegetables would probably be good. I'm seeing a lot of recipes online, but am having a hard time weeding out which ones are worthwhile, and would appreciate any favorites you care to share.

Crock pot beef stew. Easy. Filling. Boring. Can you help?

I like to put cubed beef and chunked potatoes, onions and carrots in the crock pot and end up with dinner. I've tried lots of variations on liquid: water, broth, wine, coffee, beer. They all end up tasting meh, although the meat and veggies are usually delish. I'm tired of experimenting -- what do you use? One thing: I'm not going to dredge the meat in anything and sear. If I were up for that it wouldn't be a crock pot dinner. We have no food limitations except No Cilantro. Thanks!

Help me make the best cholent ever without killing my guests! (Although that latter part's not a dealbreaker....)

Recipe Recommendations Needed! I'm making cholent next weekend and I want it to be tasty, spectacular and different. Would like to think outside the box a little and wow my guests. Have you had or made any recipes that just totally knocked your socks off? Unusual ingredients are fine, as long as the dish remains kosher. [more inside]

Crockpot Newbie

I got a crockpot as a gift and am dying to use it. Problem: I am an OK cook, but no chef, and I have never used a crockpot. What would be a good recipe to start with and what are the common mistakes to avoid? [more inside]

Jeff Smith wasn't lazy, but I am!

Know any freezable and/or crock-pot-able stews that also happen to be vegetarian (or pescatarian) and go well with rice? [more inside]
