Good morning! We had a luau last Saturday with a pig in the ground and everything. It turned out fab BTW. So Iíll give ya 1 guess as to whatís in the crockpot right now LOL!! I put about 2 pounds of super lean pork roast in the CP with a bag of Craisins, 1 cup of chicken broth, 1/8 tsp Nutmeg, 1/8 tsp Ground Cloves, 2 tbs honey, juice of one orange and as much grated orange peel as I could get off that thing. Iíll serve it with white rice tonight. The recipe was in FI&FI (the CP bible) and I kinda modified it as usual. Iíll let ya know how it goes.

I am about to put 2 small pork roasts in (about 2 pounds each) with potatoes, baby carrots, celery, and onion with a onion soup mix pack into the slow cooker. I am cooking 'big' so that I don't have to do too much cooking this weekend.

Morning all. No CP for me today. We are prepping for a party on Saturday and we spent last night installing speakers outdoors so I didnít have time to prep a CP and none this morning either. But I will be using it for the party. In my big CP, I buy a gallon-sized can of nacho cheese and mix it with browned crumbled hot Jimmy Dean sausage and a can of Ro-Tel tomatoes. I serve it next to a big bowl of nacho chips and the cheese is always gone by the end of the night. And no, not Spark friendly at all! LOL

My other CP will have a big batch of dirty rice in it. I need an even smaller CP for a batch of seafood dip I saw Paula Deen make on Foodnetwork. Guess Iíll have to go shopping! LOL I love her and make many of her recipes for parties.

I have used the recipe calculator at SP and found it helpful, though I did have to do a few conversions. It is good for brain exercise. emoticon

Today, I am putting a chicken in my crockpot. I have a new crockpot that is round instead of oblong, so I hope my chicken fits!

I have had that happen too. I went to google and used a free conversion so I can input the decimal of. Although I have memorized some things. .33 for a 1.3 cup etc.. 16 tablespoons per cup..

I use it often on the site because I am putting into my personal recipe program so when I print out my recipes it is on it and goes into my family cookbook. I have a site I use when the food is not in the sparks data base to get the information from too. This is what is working for me.

I have used the calculator on this site and it is helpful but very limited and often times, it will only take certain measurements when recipe calls for more,i.e., a few ounces of someting versus pounds or cups, etc. I know I can input my own and save them, but again, that takes even longer emoticon and more work.

So again, if you have them, it would be helpful. Thanks again.

For my calories I use Sparks! Go to Resource center (orange tab at the top of the page). Click recipes.. Than click the box on the left with a woman looking at a cook book.

Click 'calculate recipe'.

Put in EVERYTHING you put into the recipe than type in the amount of servings it makes and click calculate. It will tell you how much of everything per serving and you can even save it into your cookbook right there too.

Oh girl, that's too much like work! Calorie values vary and depend on the ingredients you use. Here is a great site I use to find calorie values (below). It has just about every type of food in its database. For a crockpot meal, you have to itemize the food, add up the values, and divide by the number of servings.

http://www.nutritiondata.com/index.html

And you can always use the company's site for nutritional information too. OK. I'll do the chicken one for you:

Non-stick spray - 0
Chicken breast - 143

Sauce (guestimate 1/2 cup over the meat)
Soup - 70 (1/2 of 2 cans) www.campbells.com
Mushrooms - 10 (1/4 can)
Wine - 15 (1/8 of 1/2 cup)
Broth - 5 (1/5 of 1 cup)
Seasonings - 0

Rice - 102 (1/2 cup)

So...
Chicken - 143
1/2 cup sauce - 100
Rice - 102
TOTAL - 345

See? Way too much work. I just use low fat natural ingredients and moderate my portions. If you cook healthy, you eat healthy.

I love all your recipes but if you have them, can you please, please, please include the caloric values??? I'm limited to 411 cals./meal so I "try" to keep the main course low in cals. to be able to have a salad on the side or other fillers. Thanks!

By the way, that pot roast sounds GREAT!

Good morning! I'm so glad I found this team. I've brought my crock pot back up to working full time again. LOL

Follow up to yesterday: The roast I made yesterday was nothing short of spectacular if I do say so myself. I strained the juices without dilution into a pan and used water and cornstarch to make a gravy. Then I shredded the roast with a fork and mixed it well with the diced tomatoes and mushrooms still in the pot. I served the shredded roast over rice and drizzled with the gravy. DH couldnít get enough of it! So, so good.

Today I have:

(BS = boneless/skinless)

Spray crock with non-stick spray
3 BS chicken breasts
3 BS thighs
Spray chicken in crock with non-stick spray (keeps it moist). I use Criscoís with Olive Oil

In a separate bowl mix:
1 - 4oz can undrained mushrooms
Ĺ c. white wine
1 c. chicken broth
2 cans cream of celery soup (I use Campbellís Healthy Choice). You can use Cream of Chicken/Mushroom too. Celery is what I had on hand this morning.
1 tsp. Emerilís Essence (recipe on Foodnetwork.com)1/2 tsp. kosher salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
Stir all together and pour over chicken. Cook on low 8-9 hours.
Will serve over white rice.

Today there is a pot roast in the CP. I stabbed it with a narrow knife and stuck slivers of garlic in the holes. I drizzled EVOO over it and rubbed it in so it doesnít dry out. Then I added Ĺ package of Onion Soup Mix to 1 can of beef broth. Added 2 tsp of Worst. and poured all of it over the meat. Then I added a can of diced tomatoes and a can of mushroom pieces & stems. I set it on low for 9.5 hours. Iíll make mashed pots and mixed veggies when I get home. Canít wait!

I can't use my crock pot right now. emoticon I have two, but I took dinner over to a friend in one last Friday and have leftover lamb and lentil stew in the other one!! Gotta put that leftover stew in some tupperware so I can get it cooking again!! Too many good recipes here to try!

Oh - LadyFlannel - Your oldest may be only 11, but start planning now. Those mums get bigger every year!! It's getting ridiculous. This year I saw guys with double and triple mums on their arms!! And the girls are being hidden by theirs!! Crazy.

I love making them, because that way they are so personal.

I don't have anything in the crockpot right now but yesterday, I tried this site's crockpot stuffed bell peppers. It's the firt time I have stuffed bell peppers and they seemed a little bland to me. They were very filling, however. To pepper them up, I made some hot salsa on the side which it added on my individual one. I'm hispanic. The only stuffed peppers I've ever had have been the poblano, which can be spicy sometimes.

The day before I made Smothered Chicken from the Healthy Meals website. I really didn't have a chance to eat it but the sampling I took of it, it was good. I'll be having that tomorrow. I ended up having to freez my other stuffed bell peppers as my kids were not too adventurous to try them. I hope the freeze well.

I am making some Poached Chicken right now. It is for different dishes from Rachael Ray. I thought the Poached Chicken that she did on the stove would work great in the crockpot. It is chicken, stock, and veggies. It saves me some time this evening.

Butternut squash fries sound tasty! I've made sweet potato fries (baked in the oven of course!) and they rock -- toss them in a little olive oil and some fajita seasoning. Maybe I'll do that for my squash / chili combination...

I just saw a recipe for butternut squash fries that you make in the oven. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Peel a butternut squash, seed it and cut into fries. Spread some kosher salt on a cookie sheet or flat baking pan. Put them on a fairly high rack in the oven. It takes about 40 minutes the recipe said, but be sure to turn them over about 20 minutes into the time.

I haven't made them yet, but I will!

No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it. Therefore, strengthen your feeble arms and weak knees.

I'm going to make a batch of crockpot chili this week, but I also got inspired at the grocery store and bought a butternut squash. Any suggestions on how the two might go together? Maybe roast cubes of the squash and serve the chili over it? Or include the chili cubes in the chili?

And hello to the Texans -- I used to live in southeast Houston, near NASA.

I know where Tomball is!!

I was in the path of Rita and I am southeast of Houston.

A local town just had the 4th largeste HEB open. I am not close enough to shop that one every shopping trip but it sure was intersting to check it out.

That's a GARTER?! He won't be able to lift his arm!! LOL

Way to go to make it! They are SO expensive to buy! We homeschool but I still expect to have to do garters and coursages. We live 2 blocks from the stadium too (on the jr high campbus but shared with the high school). My oldest is 11 today but I was looking at prices at Hobby Lobby to make our own when the time comes. EASY to make and less than half the price to do it ourselves.

Go TEXAS!! I live in a (used to be small) town on the northwest side of Houston - Tomball. I figured you wouldn't know what I was talking about when I put down HEB. What a great surprise to find a fellow HEBer!!

I found it at our local HEB - I had to ask the butcher - it was in with their specialty meats. Kroger didn't have it. You might ask the butcher at your store. My next choice would have been to substitute a lean pork.

Your pages are a gift, thank you.

It looks YUMMY!! But where do I get lamb? I don't recall seeing it at my grocery store tonight.

(blush) thanks. It has taken me years to find good recipes we like so I thought I should share and maybe other's would have some to share too.

Growing up the ONLY thing we had in the crockpot was roast (which I don't really care for, but I can make a pretty good one!). The crockpot can do soooo much more!!

That's where I put it. Glad I guessed right.

You've done an amazing job here!!! We'll figure it out. My husband even likes it, so I guess that is a seal of approval. emoticon

Betty,
The lamb stew can go in soups. It was supposed to be soups and stews but I can't change it :(

I needed a low-fat, low-sodium, high-fiber meal to take to a friend tomorrow who just got out of the hospital. She had her gallbladder removed, so this new diet is really important. I found a recipe for Hearty Lamb and Lentil Stew and it is in my crock pot right now. I decided I needed to try it before taking it over there tomorrow. Just tasted it and it is really good! I'll find the right spot to post the recipe.

This is grocery shopping night..aka.. EATING OUT NIGHT!

I have found it too hard to feed the tribe, clean the kitchen, then shop for 2 hours. I don't leave the house to close to 7pm. Sometimes it is the dreaded fast food and sometimes it is to a sit-down place. Tonight it is a local sit down bar-b-que place. I am sure they will have grilled chicken.

I am being an awful mom and not cooking tonight. I am meeting some friends for dinner and leaving the boys on their own. Since they are 22 and 30 this is no big deal. Sure turned out to be a good night for something slow cooked. The skies just opened up and it is pouring.
