Utililizing the slow cooker

Now.. I'm a planner.. Normally. And I NORMALLY make a menu, follow it..mostly. Have my schedules. Ok most people just say I'm a retent. But any ways.... Onto what I was originally trying to think of(sidetrack much..nahhhh)  Spring is here(yup even after the 1st day of spring blizzard) Its been in the 80s this week. Windows are open. LOVING the fresh air. But using that oven is a killer. I try to keep my bills down when this time of year comes around. And heating up a house when you don't want to...well next best thing.. A CROCK POT!!! Most people for some reason use them in winter. I LOVE them in the summer. In the winter I WANT to use the oven. It helps heat my house! But spring summer time.. Nuh uh..So I have been working really hard on finding a way to use my crock pot at least once a week. if not more..... ANY meal ideas are appreciated. EVEN if I already know them, tell me again. :) I was reading a bunch of stuff online. But nothing compares to the wonderful readers I have.(Yes I know your out there) Some bring it on! maybe I should get this book too...
