My Crock Pot...

This is Mama Kat's challenge for today..."What's in My Crock Pot?"

Well, at this moment, absolutely nothing!!! I had intentions to cook chicken enchiladas, but, well...that hasn't happened!

Now that it is fall and the weather is getting cooler, I am about to break that baby out and cook my favorite things! Things that remind me of football games, families being together, get-togethers, fall and winter Saturdays and Sundays. Comfort Food...AHHHHH Comfort Food!

My favorites:

Chili (my own version with NO onions and served with cornbread -- I'm from the South!)
Beef Stew (best served over mashed potatoes made with Heavy Whipping Cream)
Sausage Corn Chowder (need I say more?)
Chicken and Rice (Comfort Food at its finest)
Apples & Raisins Oatmeal (Yes, the smell is as good as it sounds)
Mac & Cheese in the crock pot (Nothing like it, Nothing like it)

There are tons of other things hat can be made in the Crock Pot, these are just a few of my favorites!

I'm not really one to follow a ton of recipes, I just kind of add things as I go, but man I love a good Crock Pot meal. I have an entire cookbook devoted to this. I love it on the weekends, when I have time to get everything together!

So, now that I have officially made myself hungry, I might have to stop by the grocery store and pick up a few things...a few things to take care of my "crock pot" appetite!

TRULY BLESSED to be able to eat wonderful meals with my family! It's the little things that count the most!

PS...I think I forgot to say that the mashed potatoes must have lumps...just sayin!
