A new series is HERE: Slow Cooker Sunday!! All Fall, I’ll be sharing a slow cooker recipe each Sunday for you to pop in your slow cooker and head out for the day, and then come home ready to eat and/or use for your weekly meal prep!

First of all, happy start of FOOTBALL! If you’ve read my blog for some time, you’ll know I love entertaining and creating spreads for Football Sunday– more than I love watching the games!

Another thing you’ll know if you’ve read my blog for a while is that the slow cooker is one of my all-time favorite kitchen tools for that reason. I love a no-fuss meal, and love not having to slave over the stove to make it!
