No one wants to slave away in a hot kitchen in the summertime. Certainly not me. 

The other day I made this crock pot recipe that I found on Pinterest. And boy was it delicious!

It was quite good, easy to prepare, and I even had lots of leftovers to freeze in individual sandwich baggies for a quick meal.

I think I’ll be making this next…

Doesn’t it look delicious? And it only has a few ingredients too. Besides water, only three ingredients! 

Some scalloped potatoes or wild rice and veggies and a salad would complete this meal.

I’m eyeing this recipe for sometime in August…

I think mashed potatoes, fresh green beans and a salad would hit the spot perfectly. And I’d probably have leftovers for sandwiches!

And this one is on the list too…
