I’ve signed up for a 31-day writing challenge. Every day in October, I post a new slow cooker recipe, a link to a previously posted slow cooker recipe, or a recipe from another blog.
Can you believe this is the 27th day of the writing challenge? I can’t believe it, either.
Tonight I asked the family what they thought of the challenge so far. The Imaginative One told me that it’s as though everything is normal. The family is fed and happy, so that is normal. I don’t have to worry about rushing home from work because I know dinner will be ready. Those are both winners in my book.
My mother-in-law has also been happy about the challenge because she hasn’t had to make a Sunday dinner recently. I’ve been making the dinners to test new recipes.
On Sunday, I invited my mother-in-law and a member of our church over for Sunday dinner. I cooked a pre-Thanksgiving dinner – turkey, green bean casserole, rolls, homemade applesauce, and dessert. I was in the mood for cherry crisp, so I tried to cook it in the crock pot. The cherry crisp was delicious!
My mother-in-law and F. loved the crisp.
I had more on Monday, and it was even better than on Sunday.
Stars of the recipe:
- 1 (15 oz) can of cherry pie filling
- 2/3 c. brown sugar
