Hope everyone had a great Father’s Day weekend! We took a little trip down to a town called  St. Michaels for an antique boat show with Handsome’s parents on Sunday.  There were tons of old wooden boats docked for people to look at. The town was beautiful too, with little shops and tons of ice cream parlors! We had a fantastic dinner at Akai Sushi & Cafe and then wondered around some out let stores. If we had fit in a little mountain biking it would have been a perfect Sunday. Now for some healthy Monday post weekend detox type food.

There’s a few things in life I am grateful for since this is the week of Thanksgiving we should probably talk about them. I can think of three things in particular brought up the top of my head, my two small crock-pot and in my one large one. There’s not much you can’t take on in a kitchen with three crock-pots running on high. So, the other day when Pillsbury sent me an e-mail saying they could streamline some Thanksgiving recipes by making them in the crock-pot I rewrote this week’s menu of posts, and ran to the grocery store.
