still sorta M.I.A


I'm back, sort of. I'm not sure I'm ready to really be back yet. We went to visit my family (and T) in Utah over Christmas and it was idealic! Nothing to do. Nothing left to sew for Christmas. No church callings or work to handle. Nothing but playing in the snow with the kids. And shoveling snow with the 4-wheeler. So fun! (especially for us California people).

Anyway, there are crafts to share. . . but I wanted to show you this blog that a friend of mine shared with me. It's a whole years worth of crock pot recipes. No recipe book to buy. Love that. My goal for this next year is to plan meals for the month. I used to do this and it was so nice to not have to worry about "what's for dinner" and if I changed my mind, I had ingredients for another day. Plus - so much money is saved not running to the store a few times a month. So far, January looks like a month of crock pot yummy-ness.

It's funny that you posted about the Crockpot Blog. I just came across this blog myself this morning and subscribed to it. I'm hoping to get some good recipes - and I'm also hoping to get back into monthly meal planning this new year.

Oh my DEAR thank you for sharing that blog! I love looking at Crock Pot recipes. I have a couple of forums bookmarked for reference that you might find handy for the recipes shared and questions answered (both are now closed and read only..)They were open for YEARS so there's a ton of info to glean from-
