A Bit of What I have Been Cooking

Between the kids being home for the summer and just the plain ‘ole heat factor I have rekindled love for our slow cooker. Super easy to put all of the ingredients in during the morning and get on with your day. (Just remember to turn it on AND plug it in. I have done that too many times.) Plus it doesn’t heat up the kitchen at all.

I have also cooked these recipes: (all from my Pinterest boards)

Slow Cooker Cheeseburger Soup, Slow Cooker Garlic Butter and Chicken and Vegetables, One Pot Crock Pot Sausage Dinner, Crock Pot Baked Potatoes, amongst other recipes from my Pinterest Slow Cooker board.

They are mainly pinto beans with a few black beans I had sitting around. These didn’t go with any recipe but our kids, especially The Chief, LOVE beans.
