The Weekend Warrior

Well I can't help you because I don't even know what a crock pot is! I am loving the art works on the walls.


Wow--I left a nice long reply post this morning and was surprised when I went back to show Grandpa your Blog, it wasn't there.....DUH, I forgot to do the little code thing!

In my morning post on your Blog, I reported that Santa told me he was getting you and Josh a new camera for Christmas. But Santa doesn't know all the features--he's kind of a wood toy and baby doll sort of guy--so he wants you to pick it out. He said you can get it early, so you can keep sending Ivo's Nana all those good pictures!

Also, I will bring you a slow cooker cook book when I come to visit, along with a 35# "Tidy Cat" cat litter bucket (VERY CLEAN) full to the brim with little toys for my special boy. They are mostly "vintage" 80's, so you might want to look some of them up on eBay and sell them!

Anyway, hugs and love



hurray for slow cooking sunday! I have been thinking about doing some searching for new recipes and i will share them when i find some goodies.


My favorite recipe is beef stew:

throw about 2 lbs of cubed stew meat in the crock pot and coat with 1/4 cup flour and some salt and pepper. Add some diced red potatoes, onions and carrots, a few squirts of worchestershire sauce, 1 1/2 cups of beef broth and a couple bay leaves. Simmer on high for 4-6 hours or low 10-12. Yum!

I have really enjoyed following your blog and have a link to it on mine. I especially loved the pictures and stories of your trip to Door County--I spent a great deal of my childhood there and haven't been there in almost two decades!


Glad you're back- love your blog!
I've been loving my crockpot too lately. The oh-so-healthy favorite lately is multigrain cereal. You throw it all in the pot before bed and wake up to the yummy smells:
1/2cup each short grain brown rice, millet and pearl barley; two apples chopped, 1/2 tsp vanilla, 4 cups water and 1/2 cup chopped soft dates. Cook on low 8 hours + (ours takes longer...)Add dates right before serving.

mmmm... and can you say f i b e r ?
