This is the first year I went without my annual Shamrock Shake
at McDonalds around St. Patrick's Day I think I've finally
outgrown them. I somehow missed the parade this year too but
we did our corned beef dinner and Hubby is looking forward to
Reubens tonight with the corned beef leftovers!

If you have any leftover stockpile of potatoes I have another
great potato soup recipe which has a little beer for a pretty
unique flavor. Beer cheese soup is pretty popular but give
this one a try it's a tasty one. I bet some corned beef chopped
up in there would also be good.

Spring will be in the air soon but don't be in any hurry to
put away the crockpot that's one power tool that's your kitchen
friend all year long. I have some great crockpot tips below too.

Enjoy!

CROCKPOT TIPS

Add spices and herbs toward the end of cooking time.

Keep the lid on tight, you don't want all your heat and
steam to escape.(or add 15 minutes for every time you peek)

For color, you may can brown meats before adding to crockpot.

Liquids don't boil away as in conventional cooking, so
you will have more liquid at the end of cooking time than
you started with.

Vegetables don't overcook in a crockpot, so all vegetables
can go in at the same time.

Don't add milk, sour cream or cream until the last hour.

Keep some cooked ground beef in the freezer to make soups,
stews, chili, etc.
