Crock-Pot-Challenge-GiveawayRecently, I came up with an ingenuis idea that any Mom of a busy home could come up with.

Problem #1: My darling husband hates Crock Pot cooking as he feels that everything tastes like chicken in it.   I love cooking with a Crock Pot because I can put something together in the morning and have a nutritious meal at night.

Problem #2 My children, who are 15 and 17, couldn’t cook a meal if they tried.

So I decided to take matters into my own hands and invite Crock Pot into my life in a BIG way.  I have challenged my husband and kids to try to eat 5 Crock Pot meals per week.  To top it off, some of these meals MUST be prepared by my children.

During this month, I will be giving away one 6-quart Cook and Carry Crock Pot to one of my readers.

So here goes.    I took it upon myself to make the first meal following our big Thanksgiving Supper.  (No Picture) 

Turkey Vegetable Soup with Barley 

Turkey Broth

1 Turkey Carcass
1 Onion chopped up
2 Celery Sticks chopped
2 carrots chopped
1 TBSP of Summer Savory
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper

Put all of the ingredients into the Crock Pot and cook on low for 10 hours.  Strain broth into Crock Pot.  Discard turkey carcass and mix.

Turkey Soup

1 Cup of White and Dark Turkey Meat
3/4 Cup of diced potatoes
1 Cup of diced carrots
1 Cup of diced celery
1 cup of diced onions
1/2 cup of broccoli flowers
1 Large Can of Tomatoes Diced
1/4 cup of barley, rinsed and drained.
1/4 tsp of salt
1/4 tsp of pepper
1/2 tsp of summer savory.

Set Crock Pot to low and cook for 8 hours.   The house will smell divine!

Results:  A very happy family who loved the soup.
