I got a crockpot for Christmas. After many, many years of hearing about the wonders of a crockpot, it only took six months of living on my own for me to finally get one. Boy, am I not kicking myself in the butt for figuring it out sooner!

Casey was here when I first got my crockpot, which came from his mom, so he helped me the first time since I didn’t know what I was doing. Since then, OMG it’s been such a game-changer for dinner! This week I’ve started trying more and more adventurous things! I’ll share more and more as I start actually making recipes instead of just chopping stuff up.

For this dish, I used chicken broth, wild rice, carrots, spinach, potatoes, green peppers, kielbasa, yogurt, pumpkin puree, and two eggs. Doesn’t it look pretty?

Here’s the after:

It did mix everything up before I left for work (and after taking the picture), which is why it came out so eggy, but I actually love the chowder-y texture that resulted!

Here’s what’s for dinner tonight!

Yummy, yummy in my tummy.
