Introduction

I used a small venison roast, which has less fat and calories than beef, but most folks won't have a freezer stocked with deer meat. The crock pot makes this easy and it smells and tastes great! I wouldn't have thought that the turnips and squash would be a good combination, but my DH suggested it, and it was very good!
