Rainy Day Puttering


We have had a glorious rain today. Yesterday we were in the 80s and today only in the 50s. I am loving it. I pulled out all of my Thanksgiving doo-dads and have been playing around.  Read some under a blankie and then put dinner in the crock pot. Hubs and I have an appt. when he gets home so I wanted to have dinner all squared away. It is called Supper in a Pot. And it really is a complete dinner in one dish. The family loves it I make it in the cooler months.


It is simply layers of meat and veggies. I use ground beef or turkey browned, then layer with sliced potatoes, onion, carrots, celery, bell peppers, mushrooms, corn. Whatever you like. Hubby hates peas so I use corn.
Little salt and pepper with each layer and then about 1/2 c. milk and one can of cream of whatever soup you have poured on top with melted cheese. Add a little liquid and cheese between the layers too for extra creaminess. Set on high for four hours and serve with a salad.


Here it is already for the lid and to cook away. When we get home, dinner will be ready.


I will share my pilgrims later as I am still tweaking. I like to buy a pair every year to add to my collection.


I am blogging on my couch in its new spot. I knew I would love it here so I could look at and watch the rain fall.

I love those types of dinners...all in one pot.
Do you cook the ground meat first? It looks like you may have browned it in a skillet.

We went to the Dallas Farmer's Market last week and I have plenty of veggies for something like this. If is stays cool, I may simmer your recipe on the wood stove instead of the electric crock pot.

Take care! Pat

It sounds like the perfect winter dish. A lady I know makes this, and her husband just calls it, "Junk I love". Apparently, it started when they were newlyweds, and he would say, "Why don't you make some of that junk I love for dinner?"

Holly said...

I'll bet that dinner was wonderful! I think you sent your rain this way.

Well I think we are on the same wave-length. I cooked almost that exact thing this week, only a few different ingredients. The Man calls it "goulash." It hit the spot, no matter what it's called.
