Well October is basically here and boy did September just zip right by. I don’t know why but I am always surprised by how short September invariably feels.

Along with October comes cooler weather a deeper appreciation for easy, comforting meals. My favourite way to feed my family this time of year is with plenty of slow cooker recipes. I love my slow cooker. Fill it with ingredients. Go off to work, get chores done… live your day and come dinner time your home smells amazing and all you need to do is plate your meal!

This Slow Cooker Pineapple Chicken looks amazing. I have been using my slow cooker and I love the tenderness it gives to protein. I think this recipe would be delicious cooked in it. Thank you for sharing with us.

We've been using our crock pot more and more. We used to poo poo it but now with two kids in every extra curricular known to man plus three toddlers, it's nothing short of amazing. I'm gonna talk the kids into letting me try this, this week.
