November 14, 2012 - What's In My Crockpot?

Wednesday, November 14, 2012

Overachiever of the day goes to....ME!!!!! No blog posts for months...then...BLAMO...3 in one day!

But I had to share what is in my crockpot right now!

I doubled the recipe and I will add peas near the end (I don't think they will last 8 hours in the crockpot). I'll let ya know how it turns out...but so far it's looking fantastic!

What's in YOUR Crockpot today?


Oh goodness, sometimes you just have to laugh at yourself....other times you need to publish your mistakes so that OTHER people can laugh at you.

This weekend we went to Seattle and I picked up some pretty colored carrots. Today, when I was prepping the meal I linked above, I pushed the baby carrots that I purchased for the meal to the side and headed straight for the beautiful Pike Place Market carrots. I peeled, chopped and dumped the beauties into the crockpot. I then turned the crock pot off and left it to do its thing...

A few hours later I peeked inside (I know, the crock pot rules are DO NOT PEEK...I live dangerously!) and to my chicken looked like this:

The beautiful purple carrots had turned my chicken a funky purple-ish color...and the broth was also the same shade. Isn't that appetizing??? 

Hope it tastes better than it looks! :)


I greatly enjoyed this dinner, but there are a few things I would do differently. I would thicken the sauce a bit more and use more of a flour based biscuit than the corn bread based one. Luckily, the purple-ness dulled and the meal was not a visual disaster. The flavors were very good though, it received thumbs ups from the kids and husband!
