What's cookin' . . . . .

Finally found a replacement slowcooker for the one that I broke last Christmas!

Picked up carrots, celery, mushrooms, onion, potatoes, onion soup mix, vegetable broth to go
with the first piece of meat we've bought this year.
Which was a 2.35 lb. chuck roast!

Invited DD#2 over, 
popped open a can of biscuits 
and had a nice family dinner.

hugs

    1. This is a seven-quart crock, Tracey, even with company Hubby and I have enough leftovers to keep us fed for a while.

    1. Betty, some one was telling me about not only the chicken crockroast but also heard about just the veggie stew.

  3. I cannot even begin to express how much I love my slow cooker! I cannot believe I survived without one until this year. That stew looks super yummy! I'll stick with veggie stews though ; ) I hope you have a great week!

    1. The slow cooker is the only way to go when we're on the go

      Makes enough to freeze and not that hard to clean up afterward.

      Hope all going great with you this Autumn, Ivy.

  5. I see you were weak 8^) Looks yummy. Your crockpot looks similar to mine with maybe a couple of new bells & whistles. I bought mine about 3 years ago so it makes sense that they have to change them a little. Now you need my tortilla soup recipe.

    1. Dianna, it was that dang pic on the box the cooker was in.
      This crock pot is identical to the one I broke the crock to last Christmas while DD#1 and OLDer Brother were visiting.
      Took this long to find a replacement cooker with one I liked in the first place.

    1. Mary, right now our temps are in the mid-80s so slow cooker dinners aren't quite the rage here :*) for now.

  8. This looks so yummy! Now I think I'm going to make a roast in my crock, you got me in the mood, your picture made me feel like I could just go get my spoon and have some!

    1. Must admit I LOVE using this crookpot slow cooker. Not certain whether it's the roast or the veggies that appeal to my taste buds, Debi Joy.
