I make Chef Meg's vegetable soup without the meat and with kidney beans, and without the pasta. It feeds a crowd and we all love it. I also make chili, butternut squash soup, and recipes from Spark People, usually without meat (I am not vegetarian but beans fill me up better).

I have this in my crockpot now. Salsa chicken. My DIL made it for me and it is great. She added a small can of green chiles and a can of Mexican corn. Can't wait to have it. I like the leftovers on top of salad for a quick lunch the next day.

Uhhh, good question. I just eyeball it so... Maybe like for 2 chops- 1.5 c apple juice, 1 apple, 1 small onion, 1T apple cider vinegar, and time... say like 4 hours? at maybe around 300ish? If there isn't enough liquid to cover the chops you can either add more juice or flip them. They will be sooo tender!

Feed your head.

Fanny,
Now for a beginner cook - about how much of each? and how long can I expect it to take before a meat thermometer says it is done?
