Crock Pot Brunswick Stew

Pin It PIN IT!

Happy day after Christmas my beautiful friends and fans! How was your holiday? Mine was a blast! I always have so much fun with my family. I don’t think I laugh so hard all year than I do when I’m with them. (or drink and eat so much, but isn’t that what the holidays is all about?)

As much as I love the holidays, I’m so ready to hop back onto the healthy eating train and hopefully fit back into my skinny jeans. And what better way to get back into the swing of real life than with a big bowl of crock pot brunswick stew?

Brunswick stew is a Southern favorite that’s typically made with a real gamey meat, like rabbit or squirrel. Oddly enough, I didn’t have any squirrel or rabbit on hand (WEIRD, right?) so I used chicken. You can use pork or beef, or if you really fancy, you can go outside and shoot yourself a squirrel.

This stew is absolutely PERFECT for a day like today, especially if you’re one of the lucky ones stuck in a blizzard in the Northeast. Not only is this warm, cozy and comforting, it’s SO easy to  make. Because I don’t know about y’all, but I need a holiday from the holidays. To give you an example, it’s taken me almost an hour just to type this paragraph. I’m having what you can call Christmas hungover.

If you’re feeling the same way, make a big batch of this stew, curl up on the couch and take another day off. I’m going to go stick my head under the keurig machine to hopefully wake myself up.

    First, I love this and I'm pinning right now, I just got a slow cooker for Christmas. Second, I sort of love that the font used for the heading of this post makes it look like "Crack Pot" And this seems like it has a crack-like addictiveness.
