Have I told you lately I love my crock pot? Well, just in case I haven't, I love my crock pot!!! I love grabbing all my ingredients, throwing them in the pot, then going off and doing whatever, and coming on back to dinner all cooked just a few hours later.
I popped this in the crock pot this morning and figure it probably saved us at least $20, because yesterday (when nothing was on the menu plan), an unplanned dinner out cost us way more than $20 (arghhhhh! But that was pretty yummy too . . . ) I'll update tonight with pictures; I just wish there was a way to take a “picture” of the yummy aroma coming from my kitchen. (Have I mentioned that I love my crockpot?) Here's how to let yours do all the work for you too . . . .
