How many of us start to scramble a bit when back to school hits? I know I do. Our summer is a bit more laid back and relaxed than during the school year.
I don’t know about you but I turn to my slow cooker to help out as often as I can. In fact, sometimes I think I need to get a 2nd slow cooker so that I don’t have to wait for the one to be cleaned before starting another meal.
Anything that makes my life a bit easier is awesome!
