I know! I know! I’ve not posted anything in a while and all I can say to that is – I needed a break. Now, I’m back. Yep – it is that simple. You know how it is. A day goes by here and there and all of a sudden two weeks have flown by in the new year. The old virtual crickets noise was getting really loud here at Something’s Burning. Sorry about that. And, to get back into the swing of things – here is a recipe for the upcoming NFL playoff and Super Bowl Sunday parties you are planning. It is really easy because you throw it all in the crock pot, stir it, turn it on, and walk away. Ya gotta love that!
Crock Pot Spinach Artichoke Dip
4 (6 oz) cans artichoke hearts, chopped and drained
2 cups grated Parmesan cheese
4 oz. chopped green chilies
1 1/3 cup mayonnaise
1 1/3 cup sour cream
16 oz. jar salsa
2 (10 oz.) packages frozen chopped spinach (thawed)
Cook in crock pot on High 1 to 2 hours. Serve with vegetables or tortilla chips or pita chips.

I don’t know about you, but my time in the kitchen has been greatly limited since taking on a new job. I’m out the door at 7:00 AM and arrive back home around 6:00 PM every day. Given my new schedule, i’ve had to find more recipes that allow me to whip up something in 30 to 40 minutes or throw something in the crock pot before leaving for work each morning. All I can say is “Thank heaven above for the person who invented the crock pot”!
This is a classic Swiss Steak recipe. Turns out tender and moist every time.
Classic Swiss Steak – Crock Pot Style
1 round steak (you can use cubed steak if you like)
2 cup flour
1/4 tbsp. butter
4 oz. tomato sauce
1 onion, sliced
1 green pepper, sliced
Cut steak into serving portions. Combine flour, salt, and black pepper in medium-size bowl. Roll cut steaks in flour mixture, coating both sides. Melt shortening or butter in a hot skillet. Brown round steak on both sides, but do not cook. Place in Crockery Pot and add tomato sauce, onion, and green pepper. Cook on low for 6 to 12 hours (high up to 6 hours).

Well – I haven’t posted a crock pot dish in a while – so here we go. This is so ridiculously easy. The boys at my house really
like this served over hot rice for some reason with some crusty, buttery bread and a salad. Literally, throw it in the crock pot, stir, cover, set it and forget it.
EASY BEEF STEW
4 lbs. beef stew meat
3 cans cream of mushroom soup
1 package Lipton onion soup mix
Place all ingredients in a large ovenproof casserole that has a tight fitting lid. Rinse out each soup can with a small amount of water and add this to the dish. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 4 to 6 hours. This can also be cooked in a crock pot for a longer time.
