Slow Cooker Favorites!

What I’m watching and reading:

- Homemade Taco Sauce might be fun to make.

Here’s what’s going on in my life:
- I’ve been up in central Oregon this week at our other home. We haven’t been here since early November, and I sure miss it in the winter. Arizona has much better weather in the winter, so we don’t spend much time in Oregon during the cold months. It’s nice to be in a chilly place for a bit though to wear cozy clothes and make a fire!

Products I’m loving:

- Have you ever tried Garlic Butter Ritz Crackers? Someone alerted me to the fact that they would be good for our Ritz Cracker Chicken recipe!
- How cute is this insulated beach tote bag? I bought it! We love bringing drinks to the beach, and I’m hoping this will keep them cold.
- Have you ever seen purple bell peppers? I’ve just heard about them, and now I must find them.
- Since I have the travel bug, I also picked up a travel blanket (it’s always freezing on the plane!)
