To Crock Pot Heaven
Your guide to "A Care Free Day!"
Brought to you with love from Mom of 9's Place
I use a Westbend oblong crock-pot and just love it, I can double and sometimes even triple or quadruple these. The house is cool, the dinner is ready with plenty of time for your side dishes or the "fussin" you might want to do to set a nice table. ENJOY!
Come back again, this is only the beginning!
I have a lot more I'm planning to add!
