I have this slow cooker that I use quite frequently, sometimes 2-3 times a week. It’s getting quite old but works just fine; something my mom gave me many years ago. It’s not exactly a crockpot but I have certain things I really prefer to cook in it.

“that leads to your door”
The trip between my house and Charlotte is a long one! And could be even longer with the 2 year old that came back with us because we made a few more stops than normal. We had to find a McD*nalds that had a place play for [...]

I’ve been thinking for a few weeks that I might should make another quick trip to North Carolina before the kids moved back. It would be a good time for Elizabeth to go with me and Kathryn thought we could help keep the kids occupied for them. So this past weekend [...]
