Slow Cooker Potato Soup/Salmon Casserole

I thought that this week would be a great time to share some slow cooker recipes.  It's finally fall, and if you're like me, the cooler weather gives you that boost of energy to accomplish your household to-do list.  I've been painting a dresser in black and white to match Ben's (our youngest son)  IKEA furniture in his bedroom.  He likes contemporary with a 60's flair, and his room is "Rat-Pack cool"!  Anyway, if you are working your way down a list of projects, you might just appreciate some recipes that let your slow cooker do the work during the afternoon... and your family enjoy the aroma and taste of a home-cooked meal when dinnertime rolls around.  After I post today, the painting will go on;  today I will wear latex gloves because at finishing time yesterday I looked like a Dalmatian!

Potato Soup

6 potatoes, peeled and cut into bite-sized pieces
2 green onions, washed and cut up
2 whole onions, chopped
1 carrot, peeled and sliced
1 stalk celery, sliced
4 chicken bouillon cubes
1 TBSP parsley flakes
5 C water
1 TBSP salt
1/3 C butter
1 can evaporated milk
chopped chives

Put all ingredients in large-sized  slow cooker.  Cover and cook on low 10-12 hours.  Can top with chives, bacon, sour cream or shredded cheese before serving if desired.

Salmon Cheese Casserole

1 lb. can salmon (with liquid)
1 (4 oz)  can mushrooms, drained
1 1/2 c bread crumbs
2 eggs, beaten
1 C grated cheese
1 TBSP lemon juice
1 TBSP minced onion

Flake fish in bowl, removing all bones.  Add all remaining ingredients and mix thoroughly.  Pour into lightly-greased slow cooker.  Cover and cook on Low 1 hour then turn to Low for 3 to 4 hours.  Great served with asparagus as a side!
