Acorn Squash Crockpot & Can Cozy

Yummy. We (my husband & I ) eat a lot of crockpot food. You can make anything in it. I found this cool site I changed the recipe a little because I did not have some of the stuff.
The recipe calls for :
1 pound turkey or chicken ( I used very lean Stew meat)
yellow onion ( I used 2)
3 chopped garlic cloves ( I used 6) Wow My husband lovesss Garlic
1 can of Kindey beans rinsed and drained
1 sweet potato, pealed and chopped ( I did not have 1)
3 red potatoes( I used 5 cause I did not have a sweet potato
1 acorn squash, peeled and chopped ( heat in microwave 8 min. then let cool, verrry hot)
4 cups broth ( I used beef and veggie)
1 can tomatos plus some hot peppers
cloves( I did not have any)
all spice ( 0 in my cupboard)
salt and pepper

I always boil my meat or brown it first then put in crockpot.
peel and chop the veggies
peel and chop the acorn squash
pour everything in crockpot

cook on high 4 hrs than I turned it down to low for 2 or 3 hours.

My husband and I loved it. I am taking bites in between typing this (HA HA)

I like the colour scheme you used, I put mine in the freezer thinking they would keep the can even colder. All they did was defrost and leave a wet mess. LOL.
