I usually use 2 slow cookers at the same time so that I have extra food and can freeze some if possible. It's not that much more work.
I've been making these in my slow cooker for several years:
Old-Fashioned Beef Stew
Slow Cooker Stuffing
I really like both these versions of chili for the slow cooker:
Kickin' Chicken Chili (on my other blog)
And I was delighted to find a recipe for making snack mix in the slow cooker:
Crunchy Party Mix (on my other blog)
My friend Kim even has a couple of new slow cooker recipes on her cooking blog, like her recent Potato Soup.
All this talk of slow cooker recipes has given me an idea. You know how I like my theme weeks, right (just look at the buttons on my sidebar)? What if I have a slow cooker week? I could have link-ups every day and share different categories of recipes each day - breakfasts, side dishes, dinners, snacks/drinks, and of course desserts (which would most likely contain chocolate!). What do you think? If there's enough interest, I'll plan to have one in the next few weeks.
Slow cooker recipes work for me! Stop by We Are THAT Family to see what's working for everybody else! And thank you all for your great budgeting feedback last Wednesday - so helpful!
I'm also linking this to Crock Pot Wednesday at Dining With Debbie - another good place to find more recipes! And linking to Tasty Tuesday at Balancing Beauty and Bedlam - more yummy recipes!
Have a wonderful Wednesday!
