Fire, Friends and Food

This evening I spent a wonderful time with some of very good friends having a “Gathering Around the CrockPots.”

One of the kids made this super awesome sign to welcome everyone.

We lined up the crocks, dished out the food and snuggled around a big table outside to enjoy our feast.

There was a Chicken Mushroom crockpot, a Thai Chicken crockpot, Freezer Leftovers Soup crockpot, and the Simple Lasagna CrockPot that I brought. ( You can find that recipe on the Yummy Mummy Club website here. )


After dinner we enjoyed a fire in the backyard pit. It’s a lovely full moon tonight. That combined with the cool weather, full bellies and crackling fire was a great way to start the weekend and start this week.


You should try this one day. Invite a bunch of friends over for a pot luck crock pot feast. It’s a simple way to have a nice dinner and gathering with people you like to hang out with. Bonus if one of your friends has a fire pit!

Next time I want to do it with a dessert crockpot and maybe some apple cider in a crockpot too. Good times!

    What a great idea, Carin! How fun and this is something I can actually do. I’m so bad at cooking, but I love easy recipes I can make in a crock pot. I’m so glad I stumbled on your blog, it’s just what I need!

      Thanks Monica! I’m glad to hear you are inspired. I don’t crockpot as much as I should. It is so easy too right? Have fun hanging around the crocks!
