Crock Pot Cooking with Fresh Veggies
I love to cook using my slow cooker, but my slow cooker cooks too hot and fast to trust on its own for a whole day while at work. But, it does great if I'm only away from home for a few hours. So using the slow cooker on Sunday mornings is perfect.
Summer time is also a good time to use a slow cooker because it doesn't heat up the house like an oven would.
This past Sunday Morning I made Beef Stew in the slow cooker. It turned out great! I used some of our ripe tomatoes, potatoes, onions, carrots, a small package of stew beef and a few spices.
Tomatoes are plentiful right now, thanks to my hubby's unceasing effort to keep them watered all summer.
They are in buckets:
