Winter Blues

It's almost the middle of January. And I've got the winter blues really bad! The cold arrived eons ago and it didn't seem like it was going to lift....but I'm thrilled to say today we had warmer temperatures! Like, no longer frigid.

I know it is not spring, but it was enough to motivate me.


So now I can start thinking about future days when I can go to the local farmers market and see these....


And even sooner when I can bring these home to brighten up the house.


For now though my trusty crockpot is here. What's your favorite "beat the winter blues" recipe for the slow cooker? I'd love to hear about it.

Jillian,
Sorry about the "blues" and glad that the weather is giving us a "January thaw" at just the right time!

I get the winter blues too. But as fast as time flies, Spring will be here before we know it!

I have a crockpot salsa chicken recipe that is delicious. I serve it with white rice and everybody in the family enjoys it.

That sounds delicious! I'll have to try crockpot chicken with salsa sometime soon. Thanks!
