Yummy Fall Flavors

There is something about Fall and crock pots. I hope that doesn't sound funny. But something about cooler evenings and a pot roast with potato's, carrots and a hearty beef broth simmering when walk in the door. My husband loves to use the crock pot. This week he slow cooked a roast and layered in herbs and potato's, the whole house smelled warm and yummy. (Of course by the time I arrived home at 10pm it was cold, but I know the thought was there.

In case you want to give it a whirl.. .here is what he did; a 2 lb chuck roast on a rack in the bottom, with cut up potatos, carrots, an onion, salt, pepper, one package of onion soup mix, a can of beef broth and water to fill till almost full. Then cooked it for 8 hours. simple and nice. The kids love it.

Tonight I heard he is making chicken enchiladas in the crockpot, its just cubed chicken, layered with tortilla, green chilis, cream of mushroom soup and then cheese at the end.
Maybe we should do a winter recipe swap at the store of great crock pot recipes...
