Crockpotting in the cold zone

Winter has truly set in during the last few days. My car thermostat reported 6C as I drove to work yesterday. We've been having log fires every night and I've been wearing fluffy bed socks at night.

Today I bought my first ever crock pot and been looking for good recipe ideas.

I found this family who spent every day of last year using their crock pot and blogged the results. However, today I got sidetracked and didnt get the thing cooking until 4pm so at 7pm with supposed casserole still quite raw, we gave up and decided it was tomorrows dinner! I think this style of cooking requires a bit more forward planning than I am used.
Any interesting crock pot recipes welcome.

The story that Westpac mistakenly credited $10m instead of $10,000 to a Kiwi's bank account has become front page news here and in the UK. The man has done a runner. Makes me think (as I am a Westpac customer) - What would I do?

Easy crock pot recipes are the best.

I like to add a beef roast, potatoes, carrots, onions, celery, ground mustard seed, sage, garlic, salt and pepper. Sometimes a can of tomatoes helps too.

BTW - thanks for leaving comments on the BobVids blog. I need to update it more often. I blog for a living so sometimes I forget to update my "fun" blogs.
