A Completely Crockpot Festive Meal

(except for Salad and Fruit/Cheese Board)

On the various cooking forums I frequent, I continuously read posts from cooks griping about not having enough oven space for preparing the main course and sides, as well as other items which need to go in to the oven, for festive gatherings. I own five crockpots, and strongly encourage everyone to make use of them where they can.

So, to encourage y'all to consider doing so, I put together a selection of recipes that I feel could be used to make an entire festive meal with very little use of the range and oven.

I hope others will post favorite crockpot recipes which could be used for this purpose as well.
