I love the feeling of coming home from work, and the whole house smells like dinner already! There is no real "recipe" for this stew - it's just all your favorite veggies, and if you like meat, throw that in too. My husband likes spicy stuff, so just to perk it up, I add some spicy Itallian sausage bits too (I boil and drain the sausage ahead of time so the stew won't be full of grease). This "formula" also works great for chili, another winter dish that warms the tummy and soul ! Especially when combined with warm rolls or corn bread !

We were hit with what they are calling a "Nor'Easter". It hasn't been cold at all. Just windy and rainy. My absolutely FAVORITE weather! But, just the sound of a "Nor Easter" makes you think it will be cold. The time of year I appreciate my crock pot the most!
I like making it chunky, almost bohemian, with full or half mushrooms, and large meat chunks.
