My crockpot is definitely earning it’s keep lately. I may even upgrade to a new one before long. Mine has seen better days, but it still cooks so that is all that matters.
Well, I emailed Michelle from I Heart Publix to get my match ups this week. She is the one who came up with the great idea for 2 meals. I just kinda ran with it. I mean with free pork who can blame me!
So, she sent me a really great recipe for Crockpot Brunswick Stew. I was all set to put it in the crockpot this morning. I walked over to the computer to pull up the recipe and it was gone! Who knows what happened. I mean with 3 kids in the house it could have been any number of things. I had read the recipe several times, so I kind of knew what went in the pot.
That is the great thing about this recipe! It is an everybody in the pot meal. No special prep, no second guessing. Just throw it all in and go. If you don’t have something on the list, substitute or leave it out. No one will know the difference
SO, I will stop rambling and finally give you the recipe to my version of Brunswick Stew. Did I mention I made fresh biscuits?

This recipe is a favorite at my house. When I make a pan they are gone! Not a crumb in sight. They are a sweet biscuit and are really good in the morning with jam. I even make them when I make chili!

- 1½ TBSP Baking Powder
- ¼ tsp salt
- ½ Cup Unsalted Butter, Softened
- 1 Cup Buttermilk…or regular milk with a tsp of vinegar.
