Crock Pot Cooking

Since we got our new crock pot this year, we’ve made 11 dishes with it.  We always make a lot of food, so it lasts for several days.  It’s very easy to use: we simply chop and mix our ingredients and let them cook all day.  It’s great to come back from work at the end of the day to a home-cooked meal that you didn’t labor over.

We often start with an online recipe, then ignore the suggested quantities and put in enough ingredients to fill the (7-quart?) crock pot.  Here are some of our concoctions:

Chicken with Collard Greens

Sausage with Vegetables


Chicken with Potatoes and Carrots


French Onion Soup


Salmon Chowder


Lentils with Mushrooms and Vegetables


Chicken with Celery


Santa Fe Chicken


Chicken with Sweet Potatoes


Shrimp with Mung Beans


Chicken with Peppers

    They all look wonderful. And you are in luck — we have a crock pot, so you don’t have to tote yours from Nashville and miss a crock pot meal. I would like to get some of the recipes. Your mom picked out a great Christmas present! Hope all is well as the school year winds down. NL
