This morning I woke up thinking about this blog. That pretty much happens every day. Although blogging isn’t my full time job, it’s something I love, and I can’t wait to wake up and see if anyone visited the site, liked a recipe, left a comment, sent me an email. See comments for bloggers are like fuel we love them. For me they make me feel connected to you, they make it feel like were friends and I am not just typing into a machine, they bring a smile to my face since I know it takes time to share your thoughts. And I truly appreciate each time you take that time, I know it’s precious.

And this morning wow! Who knew the thought of a slow cooker could get people so excited. Y’all spoke out loud and clear that Sunday Slow Cooker Meals were something you could get excited about. I’m glad because I’m excited about them too. I love a meal that lets me enjoy the day but still tastes like Sunday dinner should. And I am going to try my best to post Sunday Slow Cooker Suppers on Saturdays so that folks have time to get what they need for the next time. So here goes the first installment tell me what ya think.
