Beef Vegetable Soup (an old favorite of mine from living at home with my parents!)
1 package of beef stew meat (or leftover pot roast works great too!)
2 potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 medium onion peeled and cut
1 can rotel
1-2 beef bullion cube
1 can kernel corn, drained
1 can green beans, drained
1/2 bag of baby carrots diced
16 oz beef broth
4 cups water
salt and pepper to taste

Place meat on the bottom of a crockpot and pour all other ingredients on top.  Stir well and cover.  Cook on low for 6-8 hours.

Meat Sauce for Spaghetti, Lasagna, or any Italian Pasta Dish (another of Mom's recipes)
1 lb ground beef, cooked and drained
1 small onion chopped and sautéd
1 small green pepper chopped and sautéd
1 can tomato sauce
1 can tomato paste
1 can stewed Italian tomatoes
garlic powder to taste

Combine all tomato ingredients in a blender or food processor, blend until smooth.  Mix in veggies and browned ground been (or ground turkey).  Cook over low until bubbly!
