Sunday Supper

Practically all of my in-laws live within a five mile radius out here in small town America and we all attend the same church. We have decided to rotate houses for Sunday afternoon lunches and today was my turn.

Since I have nothing else of great importance to post, I thought I would share yet another recipe that is a favorite around my house. Originally given to me by an old and very dear family friend, it has been slightly modified: one, because I couldn't find the exact ingredients anywhere in Oklahoma; and two, because my family tends to be a little picky when it comes to certain things.

The following recipe is not an inexpensive meal to make (unless, of course, you can find two-for-one deals or are blessed with coupon clipping skills - which I am not) but it will feed a bunch of people and/or it can be reheated for wonderful leftovers (and I don't normally enjoy leftovers).

Brunswick Stew (not a meal for vegetarians!)


  • 2 14.5 oz. cans of diced tomatoes
  • 2 14.5 oz. cans cream-style corn
  • 2 12.5 oz. cans of chicken
  • 1 (or 2) 14.5 oz. can of diced potatoes
  • 1 tub of Loyd's Seasoned and Shredded Pork
  • 1 tub of Loyd's Seasoned and Shredded Beef
  • Louisiana Hot Sauce
  • Salt and Pepper
Cooking Supplies:
  • crockpot
  • can-opener
  • spoon


  • Dump all of the ingredients into a crock pot
  • Add a couple of dashes of Louisiana Hot Sauce and salt and pepper to taste
  • Stir to combine
  • Cook on low for at least 4 hours
  • Serve with a side of corn bread and Enjoy!

I've always thought it was cool how all of your family ate together on Sundays. I've ate at a few of those meals... a long time ago with Jen.
This looks pretty tasty. I'll probably try this one too. I bet it would be tasty on a cold day.
Speaking of a long time...
I'm pretty sure our husbands got caught up on the last few (5-6-7)years when Josh stopped by the other night..LOL
We should all get together sometime.

I was telling Josh the exact same thing the other night after he got home from his "quick" errand...we definitely should all get together!

This recipe is perfect for cold days and days you really don't want to cook but still want a really good homemade meal!

You will have to let me know how you liked it once you have made it.

This sounds delicious! And it uses a Crockpot- my favorite kitchen appliance!

Melinda said...

Amy, crockpots are my favorite too, especially now that they make those liners for them.

Sounds like a great meal! Do your boys love it? Mine our quite picky, I feel like we eat the same things over and over. I have a great meatloaf recipe that includes barbeque sauce and my boys love it, I'll have to post it for everyone.

Melinda said...

Daniele - my boys pretty much like anything and everything; but if your boys are barbeque eaters I am sure they will love this recipe. Let me know if it works out for you. I can't wait to read about your barbeque meatloaf - sounds delish!

I am having a lot of days where I don't want to cook...this will be perfect to make! Thanks for sharing.

Melinda said...

April - let me know how it turns out for you.
