Crockpot Freezer Meals Recipes?

I've gotten bored with figuring out meals for dinner every night. So I want to make crockpot freezer meals that I can thaw, throw in the crockpot when I leave for work and have dinner done when I get home. I have a bunch of chicken recipes but I need some beef recipes too. Anyone have any good recipes or know where to find them?

Extra juice left after making a batch of wine

I have a 3.5 gallon wine maker and I have a bag of juice to make two batches. Is there a way I can save the extra juice until I'm ready to make another batch?

Recipes using ramps

I'm looking for recipes that use ramps (aka wild leeks) in them. I don't need leek and potato soup because I already know that one :-P. I have an abundance of ramps since they grow all over my in-laws land and so i want to use them!

Are you thinking about Christmas cookies yet? (Seriously!)

The only cookies I know for sure that I'm doing are Italian Meatball Cookies. They were a huge hit last year and I was asked to make them again. Still trying to figure out what other cookies I will be doing with them.

Christmas Cookies

This year for Christmas I want to give out gift bags of cookies for gifts. I love to bake and its easier with the new baby than trying to buy gifts. I'm not looking for sugar cookies (I know how to make those). What I want are cookies that are special or maybe a little weird. Italian cookies would be awesome but any nationality would be good too! Nothing too expensive though (I'm on a budget here!)

Appetizers for Wine Tasting Party

Thanks for all the wonderful ideas. My party was a hit! Because of the guest list I kept it simple. I made an olive tapenade and bruschetta with crostini and deviled eggs. I had a bunch of different cheese as well (sharp provolone, blue, fontina, Brie, and sharp cheddar).

Appetizers for Wine Tasting Party

I'm having a wine tasting party for about 15-20 people. Very laid back and we are novice winos. I'm planning on doing an olive tapenade but need some help coming up with other appetizers that are cheap and easy.
