In an effort to prepare for the rest of the week, I’d always wake up an hour early on Mondays to whip together a creative crockpot concoction, and by the time I’d arrive home from school, the hallways were filled with a hearty aroma…and…um…hungry boys. I guess you could say this was the beginning of the Monday Menu and my love for the dependable crockpot.
