When you have a super preemie, one thing you should be aware of is the amount of appointments they will have their first year of life! It’s redonculous! (No I have not completely lost my mind, we will get to the Save the Ta Tas part in a minute!)
But of course, these appointments are in her best interest, so we go to the three or four different specialists, we have Physical Therapy, Early Intervention, Speech Therapy, and all of the other well visits, etc.
Point being – we have a lot of “extra” stuff to fit in the schedule, which brings me closer to the point of my post. I LOVE MY CROCKPOT!!! (yes, you’re still reading the right post!)
I, no kidding, use it every week, sometimes more than once a week. The best part about it is that usually crock pot recipes take about five minutes to throw together, and then the meal prepares itself!
Can’t get better than that! Oh, and your house will smell delicious all day long! YUM.
Today we had doctors appointments and it was a perfect crock pot day. Plus it’s the end of the week, I’m tired, and easy is best! Moms: if you do not own a crockpot you are missing out on one of life’s greatest gifts to the busy mother!
So, now to the Saving the Ta Tas part!
I love checking out new crockpot recipes, and I was delighted recently to come across a revised version of the “Fix-It and Forget-It” (one of my faves!) in PINK! Yes, it has an entire section devoted to survivors, breast cancer awareness, wellness, and all the favorite crock pot recipes. And $1 from each purchase goes to fund breast cancer research. Being that this is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and my mother-in-law is a two time survivor, I could not pass the opportunity to put in a plug for this great cookbook! (Click on the picture for more info! And FYI – I am not making any money from this!)
One of the things I really like is they have an ebook version that downloads straight to your phone! Yay! No more lugging around the cookbook or trying to keep the page to stay open while you’re multi-tasking! So, I found a recipe that looked delicious. Ham and scalloped potatoes. Only I didn’t have ham, I had four boneless porkchops that I cut into strips.
Can you say DE-LISH? Well I will let you know tomorrow but it smells FANTASTIC as dinner is making itself while I am writing about it!!!
So if you’re looking for a new crockpot cookbook or an excellent gift, consider this book, and help raise more money for research!
