Thank Goodness for Crock Pots

So, I've finished my first week at my new job. I have to say, it's going to take some getting used to. I've become accustomed to being able to come home, make dinner, and enjoy some time with Herschel and Oscar before going to bed and getting up to do it all over again. Well, my new commute doesn't quite fit my schedule. I know a lot of people do it, but I can't say that I'm a fan of driving close to an hour in each direction to get to and from my job. Especially, when that means I don't get home until close to 7 p.m. - at the earliest - every night. Maybe I'll adjust, maybe something else will work out, who knows, but for now, I'm developing a very close relationship with my Crock Pot. I've got a great Crock Pot cookbook, but I'm just wondering...does anyone else have any good Crock Pot recipes that you'd want to share?Obviously other than the typical roast - I've got that one pretty well covered.


  1. I have several pretty good ones if you want them. I can scan them at work and email if you want. The crock pot is my friend as well because of the kids. I am not too much of a fan of working all day, coming home to try and play with them and cook dinner and get them ready for bed and do some more work at home. I will gladly take all the help I can get, lol.

  2. Yes! That would be great! I need all the help I can get. :) I'm struggling as it is. I can't imagine throwing kids into the mix. We would either have to starve or survive only on McDonalds, PB, and/or cereal.
