What are you making in your crock pot these days?

I cut a Japanese squash in half with some water and will let it go all day. Depending on the kids mood, I will add some cream and stock and blend to make a soup or just eat with some butter and sugar. Last weekend I put in about 7 large fresh tomatoes from the garden and some stock, chopped onion, olive oil and a bit of sugar. Then let it go all day. Added salt and pepper to taste after I blended it with some cream. Yummy tomato soup. I also made a veggie soup with carrots and onions and celery. Added chopped chicken and baby spinach at the end.

What are you making? Need some ideas. Thanks!

  1. Today I have a Jamaican Goat Curry recipe that I modified to use my crockpot

    I'm looking forward to the weather getting colder, as I love having mulled apple cider in the crockpot, kept on warm all day. It's so comforting :)

      Can we revive this thread? Just got a crockpot (4 qt) and am excited to start cooking with it! Wondering what others make for dinner/lunch? We tend towards vegetarian lately, and budgeting is an issue. Planning on breaking it out for the first time this weekend and making chili!

      I know it was a while ago, but @thepunk - cider sounds delicious :)

        Thank you! I had searched under crockpot but not slow cooker!
