This week we turn the page of the calendar, and next month is getting-back-to-
regular-schedule month. I often have visions of long, leisurely, summer months, reading novels on the porch, with a glass of sweet tea at my fingertips. But in reality, the unscheduled summer months usually end up being crazier than our school-year months. So, I look forward to August, to gearing up for another school year, and to autumn meals. The first cool day of September will have me hunting through my cookbooks for my favorite hearty, cool weather recipes. And since I recently discovered the wonders of the Crock Pot (again I say, how did we live this long without one?) I thought it would be fun to host a Crock Pot Festival to help fill those cool months with lots of yummy, easy meals.
Send me your favorite Crock Pot recipes -- chicken, beef, pork, beans, veggies -- if you love it, I want to try it. Post the recipe on your blog and then use the e-mail envelope below (or leave a comment) with a link to your blog. Or just e-mail me your recipe. The fun begins on August 9. Send me your recipes before then! And be sure to come back to check out everyone's favorites!
