Meals Week 1: Slow Cooker

I love the slow cooker.  Dump, Start, Forget.  Even better when the have the built in timers!  One pan meals are a great side effect as well.

This coming week I will be making slow cooker:

Beef Pot Roast and Vegetables

Beef Roast, McCormick Pot Roast Slow Cooker Seasoning pack, chopped onion, potatoes, carrots, maybe bag of frozen assorted vegetables.

Georgia-Style Barbecued Turkey Sandwiches

Recipe from Pillsbury Slow Cooker Recipes pg:150.  Imagine shredded turkey with light bbq-ish spicy sauce topped with coleslaw on a bun.

McCormick Slow Cooker Italian Herb Chicken

Recipe from

Partly Homemade Clam Chowder

1-2 cans of favorite chowder, one can condensed cream mushroom soup and indicated amount of water, chopped vegetables, clams, salt, pepper, any additional seasonings I may fancy that day.

This should be enough full meals to feed us with leftovers on the other days.  I add salads and breads as extras usually, just depends.  If you’re looking for the Georgian Turkey Recipe I bet you can find the book at your local library or a similar recipe online.  My list is just an idea starter for you.  Here’s to plenty of tasty meals this upcoming week!

Bountiful Baskets Shops For Me

005 Bountiful Baskets Food Coop = cheaper fresh produce that I don’t have to shop for = Lazy Stepford Wife Approved.

This is a picture of a basket I recently picked up from my contribution to   They have the program in my area and lots of others too, so check it out.  I make a donation, print the receipt and pick up the goods at the end of the week.  As you can see it is a lot of produce.

It does mean that I have to try some new things once in a while.  Usually that’s ok. They have a lot of other things you can buy as well like breads, granola, bulk produce, specialty packs, and organic produce.  My husband is on the bandwagon because he likes the different fruits they provide and asked me when the next pick up was.  This is an easy way to keep healthy food around the house (where you are more likely to eat it).
