  • I threw a pot roast in - seasoned with some garlic and pepper, a couple of beef bouleon cubes, then threw in baby carrots, 1/2 an onion sliced, a couple red baby potatoes, and enough water to cover the meat and cooked on low for 8 hours and it was delicious!!!!!

     I'm eating the leftovers now and it's so good!!!!

  • I was going to suggest a roast...you could do the actual roast, carrot & potatoes as was suggested or shred the meat and do BBQ shredded sandwiches. Or soup. Soup is always my option on cold rainy days!
  • Roast is always a classic, I also like to do taco soup, and I'm thinking about doing rice and beans with sausage - kind of a jambalaya without the shrimp and chicken!  An easy mix for roast is cream of something soup with a packet of onion soup mix, a cup or 2 of water and a beef bouillon cube.  If you don't think about the sodium content, the gravy is delicious!

    This website looks awesome1  I wanted to make some crockpot meals that are freezable so dinner will be even easier once LO arrives.  Since you used to crock pot a lot, do you know any good meals you can throw in frozen?

    1 can corn, undrained
    1 can Rotel, undrained
    1 package ranch dressing mix
    1 tsp cumin
    1 Tbsp chili powder
    1 tsp onion powder
    1 8 oz package light cream cheese
    2 chicken breasts

    Drain and rinse black beans. Place chicken at bottom of pot, then pour out whole can of corn (undrained), rotel, and black beans. Top with seasonings and ranch mix. Stir together. Place cream cheese on top. Cover with lid and cook on low for 6-8 hours. Stir cream cheese into chili. Use 2 forks to shred chicken. Stir together and serve

  • MY GO TO MEAL lately is this. So freaking easy.


    4-6 thin cut frozen chicken breasts

    1 can of cream of chicekn soup

    1 packet of italian seasoning

    1 8oz block of cream cheese

    1 bag of frozen mixed veggies

    I put the cream cheese and soap in the crock pot on high for 15ish minutes to soften up then mix together the soup, cream cheese, and italian seasoning.

    Then put the frozen chicken in and try to slop some of the mix onn top.

    Cook any way you want. High for 4 hours, low for 8, whatever, you can't mess it up!!

    After it is done I chop up the chicken with a metal spatula, then I cook up the veggies and thrown them all in, and mix it all together.

    We serve ours over either rice or biscuits. My husband likes the biscuits but my girls and I like the rice better. 


  • Publix has a lentil soup with seasonings.  The last hour before it's done I cut up a kielbasa or polish sausage into bite sizes pieces and toss in.  Adds a little extra to the soup.
