My newest fave is slow-cooker white chicken chili; I'm currently groaning from 2 bowls tonight, lol!
In the past it was slow cooker 'gourmet' potato soup..YUM.
I also made slow cooker pepper steak recently, hadn't made it in years..another yum.
My last batch of 'everything' soup was pretty darn good too; I save leftover veggies in the freezer. When the container is full, I brown some beef, add no-salt tomato juice and the veggies.

I love veggie soup. I use fresh or frozen products (watch the salt). I usually have cabbage, NAS tomatoes, okra, onions and garlic on hand. I go from there and make it different each time so I don't keep a recipe. I just write down what I put in it and then put it in the recipe calculator here. When I finish this batch, I just delete it. This is a good way to get my veggies in. I also just open my spice rack and put in what I like that day. When I serve a big bowl, I put in the hot sauce then. I make enough for several days. Rarely do I put in meat (meat on the side if I want it).. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Slow but will get there!

pork, barbequed (low sodium)
Submitted by: DONNAC228

Low sodium, crock pot
You might want to increase the Worcester sauce to 2 tsp, and I have also added mushrooms to this at times. It goes well with brown rice.
We get 8 servings from this, but if you have hearty eaters you might only get 6.

450 Minutes to Prepare and Cook

2 1/2 lb pork cutlets, boneless
6 oz tomato paste, no salt added
8 oz can tomato sauce, no salt added
2 T white vinegar
1 tsp worcestershire sauce
2 tsp chopped parsley
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
2 T. packed brown sugar
1 tsp chili powder
1 Cup chopped celery
1Cup chopped onion
2 cloves garlic, minced

Cut pork cutlets into 1"-2 " cubes, brown in 1 tsp olive oil.Put that into the crock pot. Combine sauce ingredients (tomato paste through chili powder), saute celery and onions in olive oil, add garlic for about 30 seconds then add to sauce, pour over pork. Cook in crock pot on low for about 7 hours.
Makes about 8 servings.

Number of Servings: 8

Happy Friday to you!

I don't know about everyone else, but when cold weather hits, I make soups & casseroles. I love hearty (and heart healthy) foods.

I thought we could share cold weather recipes for today in honor of the snow storm status hitting the East coast (again) so...

Your challenge today is to SHARE A COLD WEATHER RECIPE. You can post a recipe of your own. You could post a link to a favorite recipe you enjoy. You could post a Sparkpeople recipe.

I would like to see folks posting healthy & hearty recipes to warm these cold days. If you aren't a cook, what foods do you enjoy in the winter that don't sabotage your healthy lifestyle?

You can also share restaurant dish suggestions or name brand foods that are great to enjoy during these cold months.

Have a BON APPETIT Friday!

P.S. Sorry I missed yesterday's challenge. I had a challenge of my own, trying not to be tempted by chocolate covered strawberries I was making my hubby, some of his co-workers, some of our friends and parents. I gave into one, though had dark cocoa on it. Spent most of the day getting these done, along with valentine's cards for son's homeschool party and for hub's co-workers. Ugh...too much to do, no time to do it.
