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?

*UPDATED*

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 shock....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! :)

*SECOND UPDATE*

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!
