dear crock pot, you rock.

The secret to a fabulous Sunday meal is a crock pot. Sunday meals are my favorite because they are effortless! Every Saturday night, I load up my crock pot with a delish recipe and toss it in the fridge. When I wake up on Sunday morning, I turn on my crock pot and my work is done. When we get home from church a hot meal is a brewin'! Some of our staple Sunday meals are corned beef and cabbage and pot roast. Today, I tried a new recipe from Southern Living Magazine. It is definitely a new favorite! This warm meal is so amazing, I am willing to share it with you and your families!

Chicken Thighs with Carrots and Potatoes

  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
