I made a really nice chicken & veg soup in mine yesterday:
1 onion, diced
2 stalks celery, chopped
1 carrot, diced
2 zucchini, diced
2 cloves of garlic, crushed
1x 420 can creamed corn
2-4 chicken breasts, or other chicken pieces eg thighs
6-8 cups chicken stock
1x 40g packet chicken noodle soup
1 1/4 cups of dry soup mix
I just threw everything into the slow cooker and turned it on low for 8 hours. I used 2 chicken breasts, threw them in whole, no chopping. I just pulled them out towards the end and shredded them with two forks and returned them to the mix.
I also forgot to add the garlic- didn't matter. I purposely didn't add the celery because I wasn't going to buy a whole celery for only two stalks, again it didn't matter.
It was a really tasty and hearty soup

I pop a lamb shoulder in the slow cooker with a few tins of tomato puree, thyme and rosemary and let it cook all day. I add pepper and veges about 4 hours before serving, it just falls apart and is a zero effort dinner. We either have it with pasta or fresh crusty bread rolls..

I made a 'throw out' casserole yesterday. I clear out anything that is starting to look a little worse for wear and cook it. The meat is never anything but totally fresh though.
I found onions that were starting to sprout, sweet potatoes that were getting bumpy and I had around half a dozen carrots that were just starting to get bendy, lol.. Oh and potatoes, there were only 6 left so I popped them in too. I cut everything up after I peeled any bad stuff away and there was nothing wrong with what was left.. So much stuff used to get thrown out before I started with these casseroles..
I added it to my slowcooker with browned rump steak and added beef stock, passata and a cup of red wine. I added a bag of baby beans an hour before it was ready and I used the rest of my flour and my last sachet of yeast to make fresh bread.
Very therapeutic to clear my fridge and pantry out and turn it into something so yummy, it would've ended up in the bin normally!

Subbing... I also normally just use meal bases. I don't really like tomato, so that makes things hard! I love making beef casseroles though. It's so cost effective because it makes enough for two dinners (I usually make pies with the left overs).
I have a curried chicken wing recipe that I'll come back and post later.
