Warning: Domestic Deliriousness Ahead

I love to cook.  (Mom, you can get up off the floor now.  I know you thought I'd never say that. Also, this doesn't mean that I want you to stop bringing me those delicious peanut butter things when you visit! Just so we're clear.)

It's true...  I went from living off of a diet of sandwiches and cereal in college to becoming a full on Suzy Homemaker.  I've gotten better at it too, especially compared to a rather unfortunate Broccoli Beef incident about 4 years ago that I don't think my husband will ever let me live down. 

One thing I DON'T like about cooking, is weeknight cooking.  When I don't get home until 6ish and Avery goes to bed at 8pm, I'd rather spend every second of those two hours trying to get a slobbery kiss, not making dinner.  I try my best to have quick dinners or cook on the weekends and have leftovers M-F. 

That's why when I stumbled across this blog, I almost peed myself with excitement. 

Crock Pot Mania

This WONDERFUL woman cooked in her crockpot everyday... for A YEAR.


And then she shared all of her recipes on her blog, so that blog stalkers busy moms like me can "borrow" them.  The recipes are really diverse too!  Not just Roast and other typical crockpot meals.  The Mongolian Beef is calling my name because I haven't had the Chang since the Hatches moved back west.  I will have to make it soon.  Now, because of this fantastic blog, I will be adding much slow-cooking goodness to my arsenal.  And sneaking in a few more slobbery kisses. 

Check it!

You think of the cutest titles for your blog! Mine is called The Hatch Family because i'm not witty. If you want to help me think of a witty name I'll copy it and take all the credit. Just kidding! I'll credit you I guess. ;)

I LOVE the crock pot. I'll have to go have a look-see. We haven't had the chang in a YEAR. I'm dying for some Coconut Curry Veggies!

I also hate to come home from work just to have to make dinner, especially when I only have a few short hours with my little girl before she's off to bed. I hate cooking in general though.

But... crock pot cooking is something I could totally do. Thanks so much for the link!!
