I love this time of year! I love watching my little girl play outside. It is her heaven. She loves the outdoors, parks, walks… basically anything that gets her out of the house she has been stuck in all winter long. On days that we are outside, I hate stressing about what to make for dinner or even coming in early enough to get it started. Crock pot meals make that so easy for me. Stick in all in the crock pot in the morning, and have very little prep to do for dinner time. They are my favorite.
This meal was incredible. My entire family enjoyed it and it was extremely easy to make!
