Crockpot to the rescue


 Fall weather gets me in a crock pot and oven using mood! Thought I would pass along this recipe I got from my Fix It And Forget It cookbook.

A crockpot is a homeschool mama's best friend! Is your's still in the pantry from summer time neglect? Pull it out and shine it up! Dinner will be healthy and ready on time!

-- Hamburger Potatoes --
Kiss your crockpot!
3 medium potatoes sliced

3 carrots sliced
2 Tb dry rice
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 lb ground beef browned and drained
1 1/2 to 2 cups tomato juice, as needed to keep dish from getting too dry

Place veggies on bottom of slow cooker to keep them moist during cooking. Add other ingredients and set cooker to Low for 6-8 hours.
I always add extra powdered garlic and onion to everything. Tomato soup mixed up (reconstituted) will substitute for the tomato juice.
