My go to Crockpot recipes

I know
I haven't blogged in a while and I am posting about crockpots
But with working full time (and then some) I don't have time to put 2 hours into a meal everyday
I have had a few people over for dinner and they have asked for recipes
well, here ya go

(Click on the name of the dish for the recipe)

Love this stuff for tacos,burritos or salad

Haven't made this exact recipe, can't find the one I usually use.But this is VERY similar

Not a huge fan of this stuff, but T is

Yum, these are great as appetizers (plus I hate the  little hotdogs and these are just as easy)

This tastes like I am sitting in Panda
* hint- use high quality orange juice. You're welcome.

Baked Potatoes (no link, made it up)
Wash potatoes
poke holes
rub a little Olive Oil and salt on the outside
Low for 6-8 hours

Curry (no link, made it up)
Chicken (Thawed, haven't tried frozen)
Carrots, celery, potatoes and onions
Trader Joe's Curry sauce over the top
Simmer on Low for 8 hours
Serve over Rice

Roast (no link, mom's recipe)
One roast (I have used Pork and Beef)
Celery, carrots, onion (whatever you want)
Salt and Pepper over the veggies
Put the roast on top of them
One Lipton Onion Soup Mix over the top of the roast
cover and simmer on high for 6-8 hours
People will rave.. trust me
Haven't tried a lot of these but the ones I have tried have been awesome

* Disclaimer: If you don't like any above, you probably made it wrong :) Jk, I not a fabulous cook and do not claim to be,

Optimism / Olly Moss 

Lately my life has been full of forced optimism 
meaning I have to work for it some days more than others 

 Work affects me too much
 I am awful at leaving it at the door when I leave 
so when 3am creeps around you can sometimes find me on my computer 
with White Collar on 
finishing emails that I can't stop thinking about

 I let people's negative energy affect me
 like someone who called yelling about lack of parking
 and then asked me to leave a meeting to go walk and find him a spot 
'cause that makes sense 

 Luckily I have an amazing husband who gets me and knows how to make everything better 

One day at a time
One amazing day at a time
