In the future, don't by 2 lbs of mixed salad veggies. You can't finish it by yourself.
In other news, I did purchase a slow cooker / crockpot ($20~), and managed to follow instructions and made beef stroganoff, following shaolin_masta's recipe.
It was good and lasted for two.. three? days.
I need to buy the frozen sort - still haven't reproduced that flavor yet though.
