Menu Mondays

We’re back! Well, I hope we’re back. Life with a newborn is busy in ways that are hard to explain – as in, I’ve been up since 6am, but I can’t tell you anything I’ve accomplished, and now it’s time for bed. Smile 

We’ll be trying out some new crockpot recipes in anticipation of my return to full time work in about a month. I admit, I am totally intimidated by holding down a full time job with this little one!
