I really love my crockpot. And I've started to use it once a week, usually on Friday nights becuase this is the night I find myself most consistently feeling like, "Let's just grab Chipotle" when Aron gets home from work, regardless if I have a meal planned or not. I have solved this problem by doing a crockpot dish this night and have found it to be very fulfilling and helps us save our "eating out times" for special ocassions.
I found the following link on my friend, Allison's blog. The creator, a woman named Stephanie, has committed to using her crockpot every day this year! She makes everything from apps, to soups, to entrees, to drinks, to desserts, etc. I can't wait to try something new. Click here to view her recipes.
Laurie sent me a link to a great blog, "Flipflops and Applesauce," where the author, a mom, posts crafts and outings she does with her kiddos. Some fun, creative stuff there. She also interviews other mothers from time to time. Click here to see more.
