Crock-Pot Giveaway + Win a Year of Groceries!

 The weather is getting cooler so I figured it was time to start making some more comfort food – I received a crockpot for review just in time for the fall season!  I’ve never really been big on using a slow-cooker aside from a few recipes but I’ve come to realize that more than half the recipes I make could be easily made in a Crock-Pot with much less effort and I can do things instead of hovering over the hot stove all day.

Along with the Crock-Pot I was sent some Crock-Pot® Seasoning Mixes.  Just a small note they do contain A LOT of sodium.  For the amount of water used in the Savory Herb Chicken Packet I felt that it was too much for my family so I instead turned it into a soup.  It calls for 3/4 cup of water and I ended up using about 6 cups of water.  It tastes just as delicious and possibly even better!  I added lots of vegetables and of course chicken so the flavor is definitely good – so if you’re concerned about the sodium content there’s definitely ways around it :)

The seasoning mixes come in BBQ Pulled Pork, Hearty Beef Stew, Savory Herb Chicken, Savory Pot Roast, and Beef Stroganoff.

I did make a soup with the Savory Herb Chicken, however you could easily serve it over rice or even a bed of quinoa to change it up a bit!

I’ll be sharing my recipe for the soup we made so if you want to make you can easily do it, BUT until then I wanted to tell you guys about an amazing contest that Crock-Pot has going on right now!   It started on September 26th and runs until October 17th!  It’s a recipe contest so all you need to do is whip something up in your Crock-Pot and use one of the seasoning mixes to enter!  The grand prize is a free year of groceries worth $8,500 plus a year supply of Crock-Pot® Seasoning Mixes!  So go hurry up and enter!!  There will be 10 semi-finalists and then it goes into voting on October 28th until November 14th.  The winner will be announced on November 21st.

You can also win your very own Crock Pot right here! One lucky reader will win a Crock Pot and a 3 Month Supply of Crock-Pot® Seasoning Mixes!

    I love the ease of throwing in a packet mix and using the crockpot to have supper ready when I get home after work. I would probably add some rice or buttery noodles and put the savory herb chicken on top :) Yum!

    I’d love to try the hearty beef stew – except I’d probably turn it into a veggie stew, I haven’t had beef stew (or minus the beef veggie stew lol) since my dad passed since he was the one to always make it for us. I love beef stew… I’m just not crazy about the meat (any) so I tend to leave it out of things like this.
