Chicken and Squash Stew

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Here’s the stew I just made, before and after cooking. Below is the recipe. As you can see, it’s quite wholesome. Now, if I can just limit myself to modest portions, I’ll be all set. I seem to have succeeded in this instance; as you can see, I measured myself a one-cup portion, and I seem to be sticking to it. Go me!

Oh, by the way: OM NOM NOM!!!

Chicken and Squash Stew
1 bag trader joe’s boneless thighs, thawed if possible

Cut onions and celery
load into crockpot on high
