Dinna' Time

Tonight Jon and I found ourselves in a bit of a quandary.
Jon had been sick all day, I'd been studying, and we had church at 6.
While I thoroughly enjoy Saturday evening church, it's a difficult time to plan dinner around.
We don't like eating before because it's too early, and by the time we get home at 8 we don't want to take the time to prep and cook.

We were thinking of some sort of cheesy potato creation and something to use up the massive amounts of venison we have occupying our freezer space.

So I decided to was time for the crock-pot to pay a visit and we whipped up this little creation in no time!

Now I will say... the pictures aren't fabulous (dang you yellow lighting!) and there are non of the prep, but it's beyond simple... and it's so satisfying :)

What you'll need:

6-7 potatoes sliced (we did ours a it thicker, but you can do any size)
1 chopped onion
1 lb ground venison (or hamburger, ground turkey... or whatever you prefer)
Lowry's season salt
2 heads of broccoli
3/4 c milk
1 can cream of mushroom soup
Shredded Cheddar Cheese (as much as you prefer)

1) use your prep crew (i.e. Jon) to slice potatoes, cut onions, and split up the broccoli.
2) While your prep crew is doing that, brown the meat with seasoned salt and some garlic powder if you like.
3)layer the potatoes, onions, venison, broccoli and cheese... then layer 'em again
4) stir together milk and cream of mushroom soup and pour on the top of your layers
5) put the crockpot on high and come back from church 3 hours later... and dig in :)

a little salt and pepper on top to taste and you've got yourself a hearty, yummy, satisfying meal :)

And don't forget to enjoy with some Woodhuck Hard Cider...

What are some of your fave crock-pot creations?
