Monthly Archives: October 2011

October brings with it so many things that I truly love.   I love the cool weather and the colorful landscape.  I love the spices used, and I just love pumpkins!  This October I heard of “Crocktober Fest”. Using your Crock pot as much as possible through the month of October.  I have always loved finding a great recipe that can utilize this appliance, however I must admit, the crock pot has never had a good reputation in my mind.  I find the recipes filled with cream of’s and the meat funny textures and colors.  So here’s to the challenge!  I am always up for a new one!  I will try these recipes this month and see if my family can be satisfied with meals that come from this “too good to be true” cookery!
