Sometime in this last week. I was talking with my five year old. I had mentioned my crock pot in a conversation and he wanted to know what that was. I was surprised he did not know what a crock pot was. But as I thought about it, I really have not used my crock pot in a long time.
I did my best to explain what a crock pot is to my five year old. “A pot that you plug in, it cooks food automatically, without a stove. It cooks the food slowly, so you can set up the food and go do other things.”
Even as a five yer old my son immediately saw the benefits of using a thing such as a Crock Pot. He commented something like, “It cooks for you while you play?” Followed by “you should use that crock pot again sometime soon!”
I pondered on his five year old wisdom. “You should use that crock pot again sometime soon.” Yes, I agreed with him, I should. Especially right now while things are so hectic, a crock pot could really be just the thing.
What do you know, but then this link comes across my facebook feed.

That amazing blog post lists several soups and sandwiches. It has Chicken recipes, Beef Recipes, Pork Recipes, and even some Miscellaneous Recipes. These recipes sound very much like must-try recipes.
When you run out of the 100 days of meals then you can find other great things on that blog like…
20?! All pumpkin?! YUM!
Needless to say. Make a crock pot menu and shopping list is going on my to-do list.
