I recently posted a request for guest-worthy crockpot meals and Bobmark's Smokey Turkey joes were on the list (as was a pulled chicken sandwich idea, which sounded great too).
Maybe what they mean is a HOT meal, not necessarily "dinner worthy" but he used a wrong choice of words/thoughts?
Omlettes(sp?) are great as are frittatas.
Quiche is great too.
I'm making the crockpot joes because they are time forgiving, you can eat as much as you want, and it is hot. At 9pm, you may not want to serve coleslaw, but maybe a creamy potato salad or something like that or just good rolls.
