OK now that it is getting colder out, I am starting to think of some good hearty winter recipes. If you have any please post them here. I like having a variety of meals and sometimes you get in a rut and eat the same :pooh: all the time.

And since I started the thread here is one that I made a few weeks ago for some pot roast. It is really simple:mrgreen:

1 pot roast, either frozen or thawed. Thawed might take less time.
Dried garlic to taste
Dried onion to taste

Put that in a crock pot on low coating the roast with the seasonings

Then dice up carrots and potatoes and throw them on top of the roast.

Come back in about 6 hours and you have a nice tender roast and vegies all in one.
 
you can do what my dad tought me to do...

take a whole chicken, (i like the ready to roast ones) drop him in the crockpot, pour in a bag of long grain rice(old school cooking method, not this new microwaveable bag stuff), cover with water, and cool on low for 4 hours, then high for 2-4 hours depending on your crockpot.

you can add carrots or whatever you like, but we just did chicken and rice...

anyway, once its done cooking, we just reach in, swirl your hand around, pull all the bones out, and call it dinner...

something else that we do at my place is this stuff we call meal in a bag, its not the best, but it will fill your belly, and if your looking for something diff, you get them in the frozen section in the grocery store, its basically everything you need in a bag, just put it in the skillet and cook till done.

we also like the family lasagna frozen things, put it in the oven for like 40 min, take the foil top off, another 10-15 min, and serve...

or my favorite....
meatloaf burgers...
make your favorite meatloaf meat mix, but rather tahn cooking it like a loaf, make hamburger patties out of it, and cook em on the grill( i like to grill when its cold outside) NOM NOM tastey!
 
Anything really, just something different. We have a topic for jokes, muck-muck and this or that. So might as well have something for food too:mrgreen:

Easy beef sandwiches.

Take a roast, poor on a jar of gerdinare. Cook on low for 8 hours in a crock pot. Meat just falls apart

Pile onto buns
 
well heres one for chicken enchiladas

saute' chicken breast in a skillet with butter til done then chop up into small pieces
soften some corn tortillas in warm oil

in a bowl mix a large sour cream with 2 large cans of cream of chicken soup set aside

now take a tortilla add a lil bit of the cream sauce to the side then chicken and roll put in a pan do as many as you want then take the rest of the sauce and pour over the top then top with colby and jack cheese bake at 350 until all the cheese is melted
 
and for an awesome spahgetti sauce
in a crock pot on low add a jar of ragu sauce and frozen meatballs then chop up bell pepper and add a couple of cans of sliced black lives and cook in crock pot all day on low that makes an easy but very good spahgetti sauce if you dont wwanna make it from scratch
 
i can give you all different ideas for dinners and some recipes i use cause i love to cook and if you want i can give you a true mexican enchillada recipe
 
Ok, I'll give you my favorite chicken recipe. I'm a vegetarian but this chicken recipe makes me want to "convert" every time I smell it cooking!

Catherine's Grandma's Garlic Chicken:

1 Whole Chicken (5lbs, organic free range if available)
Olive oil
Thyme/ Rosemary/Sage: fresh or dried
40 Cloves of Garlic
1 Cup chicken Broth

Can be done in oven or Crock Pot:

Oven: pre-heat to 400*. Rub the outside of the chicken with olive oil then season with salt, pepper, and herbs. Put a handful of the cloves of garlic in the cavity along with some herbs. Put bird in a baking pan and add the rest of the garlic and broth, cover and roast for about an hour. Remove cover and bake another 30-40 mins or so until done (use a thermometer). Remove bird to platter to 'rest' and use drippings and some broth to make sauce.
 
what about stuffed boneless skinless chicken breasts..

take your chicken boobs and butterfly them, put colby jack cheese and a thin slice of ham inside, and fold closed, bake in the oven till done all the way through, you can crust the outside of the chicken with breadcrumbs or whatever you like if you wanna do that as well...
 
and for an awesome spahgetti sauce
in a crock pot on low add a jar of ragu sauce and frozen meatballs then chop up bell pepper and add a couple of cans of sliced black lives and cook in crock pot all day on low that makes an easy but very good spahgetti sauce if you dont wwanna make it from scratch

Thats how my wife makes her spahgetti sauce.Except she uses scrambled venison sausage instead of meat balls.
BTW
