Anticipation

It must have been the bright, crisp morning that has reminded me of how much I love slow cooker meals and how much I miss them! Our slow cooker died (well, the insert died) this winter when I put a frozen piece of meat in it and it cracked. It is my goal to replace it within the month so that by September, I can once again start creating wonderful comfort foods before I leave for work, or on a cool Saturday morning.

There is something so cozy about smelling your dinner cooking and simmering on a cool day, and something so relaxing about having dinner prepared so far in advance!

Slow cooker meals are also fantastic because they're so much better when served to company - Brian and I can't eat everything in that huge pot, anyways! So, if you like sloppy joes, or pot roast, or pulled pork sandwiches, or .... come for dinner in the fall! I'm very excited for the slow cooking season!

Yea for slow cooker dinners!!! Think of using all your home-grown veggies in your slow cooker! But don't push the season! We need to enjoy the summer first! :-)
