We have had a nice stretch of hot, summer weather. It coincided with Labor Day weekend, which was fabulous, and a fitting way to end summer. The weather is cooling slightly now, and fall is just around the corner.
When the weather starts to turn a little cooler, I find myself using my crockpot more often. It’s so nice to throw dinner in it in the morning and have a meal ready at dinner time with minimal effort. Do you have a crockpot? I love mine!
I’m already thinking that I’ll make some homemade chicken soup in the crockpot this weekend. It’s one of my favorites. Tasty and simple. I also love Cheesy Potato soup. It’s also easy to throw a roast in the crockpot with some potatoes and carrots. The roast comes out so tender it falls apart! Turkey and dressing is something new I’m trying. Tried to do it a couple weeks ago, but the turkey roast was too big. I already have a small one in the freezer for next time. I make scalloped potatoes and ham in the crockpot, with cheddar cheese soup. Mm mm good! Crockpot slop is a recipe that has gone over well at my house. It’s kielbasa or smoked sausage and potatoes and green beans. Super easy! My son makes amazing pulled pork in the crockpot! I also love to make chili and white bean chili and taco soup. So many possibilities!
I’m always looking for good crockpot recipes. Pinterest is a good place to find them. There are also cookbooks dedicated to just these kind of recipes. Dinner is so easy this way!
What do you like to cook in the crockpot?
