The rest of my homemade potstickers! Yum.
What I love about the crock pot is the utter simplicity of cooking in it. You can throw in the ingredients , add some spices and call it a day. Come back in a few hours to your house smelling amazing, and a wonderfully delicious home cooked meal is ready for your family. The ‘recipe’ for my crock pot soup is as follows:
- Brown any kind of meat you have in the freezer
- Throw in any veggies you have
- Put in some lentils from the pantry
- Add water or stock
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Leave it alone, then come back hours later to…
- Enjoy a yummy soup with your family
Do you like crock pot cooking, if so, what’s your favourite dish to cook in the crock pot?
There is nothing like a bowl of hot soup on a cold winter’s day to warm your bones and fill your belly. My family’s favourite soups this winter have been a hearty chicken noodle, a yummy beef barley and a decadent butternut squash curry soup. I love that I got a chance to use my crockpot, dumping in ingredients the night before or the morning of. I love that feeling of walking away from the meal knowing that the hard part is done. I love that feeling of my family walking through the door, stopping, taking an appreciative sniff of the air, the slow smile on their lips and the twinkle that I get in my eye when I tell them, ‘Soup’s on’.
