Put it in the Crockpot

Faithful, to be faithful is to be worthy of trust or belief, to be reliable.  My crock pot is my reliable cooking mate.  It is used several times a week in my kitchen.  I use my faithful appliance almost every Sunday.  This week I put a roast and vegetables.

To keep it in balance, I serve a big salad for everyone.

The great thing about using roast is that the next day the left overs make a great soup.  I used:
Leftover potatos
Roast meat
and a homemade veggie broth

"Soup Night" was a big hit.

My oldest daughter really likes the flavor of rosemary.  I made a rosemary cracker to go with our soup.  Crackers take minuets to stir up and only 12 min to bake.  When I make homemade crackers, it is not a temptation for me to eat too many of them. 

These crackers are made with whole wheat, butter, rosemary, salt and milk.

I also made a Lasagna in the crock pot recently.  A recipe on-line said, to layer the noodles uncooked. It was just right after being on low for 3 1/2 hours. 

My Top Ten List for the Crock Pot
1.  Roast
2.  Navy Bean Soup
3.  Beef and Barley
4.  Baked BBQ Beans
5.  Stew
6.  Garlic Potato Casserole
7.  Whole Chicken
8.  Lasagna (meat or veggie)
9.  Chili
10. Chicken Corn Chowder

What do you use your crock pot for?  I have never used it for dessert.  Happy cooking to you all.


  1. Hi, Roslynn,
    Had to let you know that I am a faithful follower of your blog - I love it! Thanks so much for sharing. We have very fond memories of our friendship with you while you were in Pullman. Perhaps we'll have the pleasure of crossing paths sometime in the future. For now, I'll be blessed to continue being a part of your blog admirers.
    Thanks again!

    1. Lily-I'm so glad you have checked out my blog. I feel so blessed by the nice and encouraging feedback. I love to invite people into my home. This blog is a way I can invite my friends (including you) from far away to come into my kitchen and see what our family has been up to.

  2. I've been thinking about the crock pot lately! Your blog is just the inspiration I needed to get it out. The lasagna idea is interesting and chicken corn chowder sounds yummy. Can't decide! btw: love lily's post
