Guess who just got a new crock pot? Yes, kinda ashamed to admit that this is my FIRST crockpot ever, too. (OK, moving quickly away from the guilt, Fig. ;)) I've contemplated one many times, but this month's Cooking Light chili recipe- shown on the cover, put me over the edge. I'm just about to serve the chili, so I'll lyk how it turns out. There were some ingredients that I couldn't find. (I hate that!) Anyway, now I'm going to be on the lookout for lots of crock pot recipes. lmk if you guys have any you love. :)
Anyway, I made these Pumpkin-Parmesan Scones this weekend. They were good, but a little high on the pointage for a small piece (3 points a piece). Youngest dd really liked them with grandma's homemade strawberry jam. I had mine straight up with a bit o' butter.
The only change I made to the recipe was omitting the pumpkin seeds. I love how they look in the CL picture, but I couldn't find them at the grocery store.
We had a nice afternoon with a family celebration of dh's bday. Our bil actually rented a locale skating rink and we had an hour of ice time to skate just by ourselves. It was very cool! dh was like a little kid. He ran out to Canadian Tire to buy hockey sticks and everything. :)
