Kielbasa and Red Beans

I came across this recipe when I was looking for crock pot recipes that cook for around 4-5 hours (the time that was required to drive to my son's high school baseball game, watch the game, and then drive back home). I also needed it to be easy (always a requirement!).

2 lbs. Kielbasa, cut into bite-size pieces
5 - 16 oz. cans kidney beans, drained and rinsed
2 - 14 1/2 oz. cans diced tomatoes
1 onion, chopped

Combine all ingredients in a slow cooker. Cover and cook on low setting for 8 hours, or high setting for 4-5 hours. This tastes really good served over rice. Serves 6-8. Enjoy!

Brunswick Stew

My younger sister, Catherine, gave me this recipe. She uses "Shane's Rib Shack's" BBQ pork and chicken and Williamson Bros. Bar-B-Q Sauce (really sweet).

2 - 28 oz. cans diced tomatoes
2 lbs. BBQ (my sister uses 1 lb. pork, 1 lb. chicken from Shane's)
2 cans creamed corn
2 cans shoe peg corn, drained
1/2 cup BBQ sauce (my sister uses Williamson Bros.)
1 t. ground pepper
1 T. salt
1 T. sugar
2 T. vinegar
chopped onions (optional)

Place all ingredients in crock pot. Stir. Cook on low 4-6 hours, stirring occasionally. You can also cook on high 2-3 hours. Enjoy!
