1- Whole Chicken (I get the free range when they go on discount)
1- Seasoning (salt, Pepper, lemon pepper, or anything else you want to through on it)
Cook on low for 4-6 hours
I use a liner for this and it makes clean up a snap.
That's is all!!! NO LIQUID goes into the crock pot either. The beauty of this is that you can season it up anyway you want and you can even put the chicken in frozen. This is the only way to go when you are cooking a whole chicken. I also have been known to put potatoes quartered and corn on the cob in there together a one pot meal. If you do the potatoes put them on the bottom and they will cook in the seasonings/juices of the chicken. After I remove all the chicken off the bone I then put the bones some veggies (celery, onion and carrots) back in the crock pot fill it almost to the top with water turn it on low overnight then you have chicken stock to can or freeze for later.

Hey Ya'll today we are gonna be cooking in the crock pot. I wanted to take you through my process of preparing my meals and how I just throw it together. I don't know how many of you use your crock pot but there is a great little invention that are called crock pot liners. They are WONDERFUL and make the clean up a breeze.
So something you may not know about me is I am very humm..... I would say frugal. I shop the sale papers and use coupons etc. So I usually base my meals on what I find on sale that week. So since it's only the two of us I buy the family packs then come in and separate them into smaller meals. Below you will see how I take a ziploc bag separate the meat, write ( with a marker ) on the outside the recipe so then if I am at work the hubby can go directly into the freezer throw it in the crock pot and head to bed. (He works nights)
4- Cube steak
1- Can cream of mushroom soup
1- pkg onion soup mix
3/4- water or broth
sliced mushrooms optional
Throw it all in the crock pot on Low all day. Add mushrooms in the last hour of cooking time. We serve ours over rice, mash potatoes or egg noodles. I personally didn't add any salt to it because the mushroom soup has enough salt for us.

Do you feel it?? Fall is in the air and even though I live in South Alabama and it's still in the 90s during the day. If you wake up around 6:30am and peek out the door you can feel the chill in the air. I love this time of year when the leaves begin to turn, you know that the cooler weather is on its way. Makes me want to curl up on the couch with a cup of Pumpkin Spice Coffee and read a book. Something about rainy days and cool days well and maybe even hot days that makes me lazy.
So I have been working on my Fall collection. There are just so many colors (coppers, rust, olive, burnt orange and espresso just to name a few)to choose from when you are making jewelry. I use the colors of pumpkins and leaves to inspire my work. So over the past week I have been piddlin` (Southern term :) with a little clay and thanks to Cindy Lietz and her tutorials I have been a busy little bee. Polymer clay is still new to me but let me tell ya it's addicting, so many different techniques you can use.
Just a cute pair of Easy Peasy earrings. Please feel free to leave me comments this blogging thing is new to me but let me know if you stop bye.

Just a necklace I put together.... is it just me or do you wake up and have envisioned your next piece?? As soon as I wake up I grab my notepad and sketch it out. Just to make sure I don't forget, like I do my dreams. What are you working on??
The ribbon I used is sari ribbon and the wire is from vintaj.
