It's late October already, and other than sharing 20+ Recipes for Slow Cooker Pumpkin Chili, I've been a very bad blogger this year when it comes to featuring slow cooker recipes with pumpkin!  But there's still a few more cooking days before Halloween, so I'm going to try to make it up to you, starting with this recipe for Slow Cooker Pumpkin Pie Steel Cut Oats from Rachel Cooks.  This crock pot breakfast cooks overnight, and when you wake up your house is filled with the amazing aroma of pumpkin pie.  Wouldn't this be a nice breakfast to wake up to on Halloween morning?

Ingredients for this Crock Pot Recipe:
Steel cut oats, water, skim milk, pumpkin puree, vanilla extract, salt.  Optional toppings: extra milk, brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice, toasted pecans.

For everyone who wants a soup with lots of complex flavors but simple preparation, this Easy Slow Cooker Thai Chicken Curry Soup from Eat at Home will fit the bill.  You can cook the bone-in-chicken, vegetables, curry powder, and stock all day while you're at work if you use the low setting; then finish the soup when you get home with the shredded chicken meat, rice, and coconut milk to cook a little longer.  This is not an authentic Thai recipe, but it sounds delicious to me!

Ingredients for this CrockPot Recipe:
Bone-in chicken, onion, carrots, celery, curry powder, chicken broth, long-grain white rice, coconut milk.  Optional:  Cilantro, Sriracha Sauce

Thirty+ Amazing From Scratch Recipes for Slow Cooker Chicken Curry featured on SlowCookerFromScratch.com
Thirty+ Recipes for every type of chicken curry, all made in the slow cooker!

Next to my computer I have a little notebook where I write down blog ideas, and months ago I wrote "Slow Cooker Chicken Curry round-up" and then promptly forgot about it.  But when I found that note again and started looking for slow cooker chicken curry ideas, I was amazed at how many good ones I found, including a few that I'd already featured on Slow Cooker from Scratch.  That's why this posted ended up being Thirty+ Amazing From Scratch Recipes for Slow Cooker Chicken Curry; I just could not cut it down to twenty!  And I'm keeping my options open by saying "30+" so I'll be adding new chicken curry ideas when I see them.
