october mini kit giveaway & this month's big reveal!!

as you might have already heard, my laptop has decided to get quirky.  it seems that the video chip (by nvidia) has caused my mother board to sort of short circuit.  i refuse to think about what that might actually mean.  are all of my pictures lost?  were those hundreds of hours of photo editing in vain?  i don't know, and  i have way too much going on this month to even take the time to think about it.  so... i will be doing most of my posting from my computer at work - at lunch and before/after office hours.

    Brown meat and drain well. Throw everything in the crock pot and cook for 4-6 hours. Or more. Really doesn't matter.

  3. I am a traditional girl when it comes to cooking in the crock pot! I love making beef stew with lots of vegetables and a thick creamy gravy! Thanks for the chance to win!

  4. I've been saying pulled pork sandwiches, but I don't have a recipe for that...so, I'll say cheese dip!
    1 lb browned hamburger (with salt, pepper and minced onion)
    1 log Velveeta, cubed
    1 can Rotel

    Toss in the crock pot and let'er melt! Yummmy :)
