8 cups chicken broth (I used bullion cubes to make it)
4 stalks of celery, sliced
1/4 of a large onion, diced
4 medium carrots, sliced
the meat off of a pre-cooked rotisserie chicken, shredded
a shake or two of dried oregano
a few shakes of Italian seasoning
I dumped all of this in the crock pot yesterday morning and let it cook on low for 7 hours. When we got home, I cooked some noodles and added those in. Deeeee-licious!!
Husband was a little annoyed that it was so hot and he had to wait a few minutes to eat it. He has a small vat of it for lunch today too. I forgot (again!!!!!!!!) to take a picture of it while it was still in either the crock pot or a nice looking dish, but here it is in a Tupperware bowl.

For today's dinner, I did the following:
one 3 pound bottom round roast
1 can beef broth
1 can cream of mushroon soup
1/2 packet of ranch seasoning mix
1/2 packet of au jus mix
1/2 pound of sliced mushrooms (they shrink when crocked, so I use a lot)
Again, I dumped all of this into the crock pot, set it on low and left for work. Seven hours later, I should have a delicious dinner waiting for me. I think I will just serve with bread or pasta tonight.
Ugh! Hungry still!!!

I guess I could have done a 31 days of crock pottery! Ha!! Well, I am only on day 2 of this journey and if my past cooking history is any indication, I won't be cooking for 31 days in a row. I did, however, Pin and save a bunch of yummy looking crock pot recipes. All of them look amazing. I tried to stay away from ones that seemed like a bad idea. Fish, pasta, most eggy things don't seem to fare well in the crock pot, although there are some that say you can crock almost anything. I have my doubts. I even found a site where someone did a pedicure in their crock pot. That to me, is going too far. Feet in a crock pot??? Gross.
