    1. LOL! That could be a concern, but as you can see from the pic, the squash made it without the color change. However, you could always skip the wine and use more broth if you are worried. That is too funny! I wonder how much wine you need to add for purple squash… 🙂

  1. I wonder if this would taste good with potatoes and celery. Carrots probably aren’t necessary b/c of the squash. My 4yo cannot have beans. Has anyone tried varying the recipe any?

  2. Could I freeze this pre-cooking? Put all the ingredients in a bag, freeze and then thaw, cook or is the liquid content too high for that? I try to prep freezer bags for all my slow cooker meals to cut down on prep time in the mornings.

  3. These are wonderful recipes, the only thing I suggest would be to use a lot more herbs, where a teaspoon is suggested I used a tablespoon. Both the chicken and cranberry stuffed chicken breasts and the beef and butternut stew ( I also added Worcestershire sauce) would have been quite bland with the amounts mentioned in the recipes. Thank you so much, though, I can now plan great dinners for my husband and not worry about ‘what to cook for dinner’ tonight!
