Fall Feast

I have been collecting tons of fruits and vegatables from my family garden. This years harvest includes, peppers, squash, tomatoes, apples, onions, raspberries, cucumbers, wild grapes and more. I have done my canning of salsa, jams and pickles are in the fridge. I froze tomatoes, pumpkin, squash, apples and applesauce, raspberries. Now I am on the casserole stage of using up all these veggies. I like to prepare meals in advance while the food is free from the garden. I love to have crockpot meals ready in ziplock bags in the freezer for when there is a friend who needs a helping hand at a tough time. Today I have made spaghetti sauce and chili, butternut squash soup, beef stroganoff and orange chicken. I have been checking out some great websites for new crockpot recipes. I am going to share the links here so I can find them again another time.I'm having a heck of a time posting links (insert sad emotion). look in the comments for more links. The first comment is '8 crockpot freezer meals' including the orange chicken and beef stroganoff. Butternut squash soup-



    I made this one night for supper. It was very easy.
