Wanna Help?

I am in need of a little inspiration.

This Friday night the Ladies' Group at my church is having their Annual Tasting Party.
You guessed it - the theme is Crock Pot Recipes.
Or Salad Recipes.
But I'd rather do a crock pot recipe.
Crock pots speak to me.
Except for right now because I have no inspiration for a recipe to make.
It has to be a recipe I've never made before.
Nothing sounds good.
Could be food hangover from the weekend.
I'm just not hungry, you know?
Anyway, help me out & send me your most fabulous crock pot recipes!
Please don't leave me hanging. Give me something...anything!

Bag of Lentils in crockpot.
1 quart chicken stock
2 carrots sliced 1/2 inch slices
2 stalks celery diced
2 potatoes, peeled, 1/2 in chunks
1/2 cup diced onion
12-16 oz Turkey Kielbasa, sliced.
4 cups water
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 tsp cumin (or thyme)

Sort (remove any debris) and rinse lentils. Put all ingredients in crock pot. Let simmer 2-5 hours on high or 6-8 on low. Yummy! The turkey kielbasa makes it very low fat, with all the flavor.

3# beef roast or pork loin
salt and pepper
garlic powder
1/2 large onion
16 oz jar mild banana pepper rings

Season the roast with salt, pepper, garlic powder, slice onions and put some under roast and some on top, dump the jar of pepper rings over everything, cook all day and shred - enjoy with beans and rice or tortillas - SO GOOD!!!

PS - I like Rebecca's recipe too - I make something very similar using beef broth and polish sausage. :-)

Italian Chicken Sandwiches

4 chicken breast halves (bone in/skin on)
4 chicken breat thighs (bone in/skin on)
1 packet onion soup mix
1/4 cup prepared Italian dressing
1 tbsp garlic salt
1/4 cup water

Put it all in and cook it till it falls off the bone. Debone, shred the chicken and put it back in the juice till it's hot again. Serve on hard rolls.

I've made this recipe with pork roast too, but you have to add more liquid. I just kind of eyeball it. :) It's really yummy.

Wow, these recipes all sound fantastic!

To be different, I'll suggest a side dish recipe for the crockpot. It's DELICIOUS! Especially nice in the fall when there's an abundance of apples to be had.

let us know what you end up making! What a fun night!
