One of the reasons I love my slow cookers is that they save me a lot of cash throughout the year. I can’t tell you how often the simple act of throwing a few ingredients in before heading out for the day has kept me from ordering pizza, Chinese food or heading out to dinner at night.

A Simple and Delicious Comfort Meal

Slow Cooker Fiesta Chicken Chili Recipe

Nothing’s better on a cold winter day than snuggling up on the couch with a fuzzy blanket and a good book.  Today we’ve spent the day hanging out in our PJs relaxing and playing indoors– it’s so cold and rainy outside– I have ZERO desire to go anywhere today!

I feel like I’m constantly running in circles trying to get everything done and NOTHING ever gets all the way done.  Hubs came home the other night from work and came out of the bathroom commenting “Honey, you don’t have to leave me hints this obvious, you can just ask me to clean the toilet”….my response “What are you talking about?”.
