First thing out of bed this morning I threw stuff for beef stew in my CP. We haven't had that in several weeks so I'm looking forward to it. I'm really looking forward to not having to cook dinner when I get home! Yay!

For lots of great CP ideas, go to
http://www.campbellkitchen.com/recipesea
rch.aspx

I keep my pantry stocked with low-fat cooking soups and bags of frozen skinless/boneless chicken in the freezer. I freeze beef all the time too. I pick a recipe I have everything for and then put the frozen meat in the CP, mix all wet ingredients, canned veggies, and spices in a big bowl and pour over the meat to coat and walk out. Sometimes I'll add in an extra half cup of chicken or beef broth. When I get home, I'll toss in any frozen veggies a recipe may call for for about 30 minutes and then serve. Normally I only have to make rice or noodles when I get home to go with whatever is cooking. This website jump started me onto cooking all the time with my CP.

Have fun with it!

ha ha, yes, but being organized is important too, should be an interesting week.

Not sure if I mentioned this, I love certain items in my kitchen, my salad spinner and a slicer (as seen on tv in the 1980's) and when mine needed replacing, the NEW models weren't up to snuf. So, I went to a place called Value Villiage (second hand store) and found EXACTLY what I was looking for!! the slicer had never been out of the box!!! What a great day there, spent $9.00 and had 3 new to me appliances I can't live without!!

Also a great place to find recipe books for slow cookers and broken peices of an older appliance. You never know what you will find there.

I often will make every dinner during a week with my slow cooker. here are a few ideas to help you with it and let you have a nice variety.

Pot Roast with Potatoes
Crazy Crockpot Chicken (in the chicken section on this board)
Teriyaki Pork Roast or Pork Chops
Mexican Meatball Soup or one of the other soups on here
If you like a meatless option try Mac and Cheese in the crockpot (I will post one here in a minute)

If you need some other idesa let us know.

BELIEVE in the POWER of your DREAMS!

I am doing a chicken thing today. I marinated the chicken in broth, tomato paste, lemon juice and some spices.. sounds kind of weird... I added mushrooms and will add orange sections and green peppers in the last hour. I hope it is a success - it's supposed to have a kind of oriental feel to it - haha.

I am going to try to cook every meal next week in the slow cooker. I often make stew, but the kids get tired of it, so I will make a roast one night, with roasted potatoes and it will be ready when I get home from work.

Any other suggestions?

Should be an interesting week.
