Good morning!!!! Boy, oh boy, am I glad summer is here!!! Yesterday, we cut into our first watermelon of the season, had our first ant infestation from my son leaving half an Oreo in his play room, and the pool is open so my kiddos slept like ROCKS last night!! AHHHH! We tend to use the slow cooker a LOT this time of year, because my kids get SO hungry swimming. Like, the kind of hungry that doesn't have time to wait for mama to throw together even the yummiest 30 minute meal :-)
This slow cooker recipe is not going to win any health awards, but by golly it will do the trick after a long day of swimming!!!
