Slow Cooker Lasagna
Well it's been a while since I've updated this. No I haven't forgot to cook supper for my husband I've just been to busy to post anything. And now I bet you are wondering what I've been up to. Honestly I'm going to say life. Life just happens. And it gets busy, and crazy and all of a sudden it's the next month! I know many of you are shaking your head and agreeing to this. I suppose I could blame it on the holidays but they haven't really started yet. We have our first Christmas this weekend and then the madness takes off from there. Hopefully we'll wrap things up in about two weeks and about 6 Christmas events later. I hope you guys have all your gifts bought, and wrapped and who am I kidding...it's not the 24th yet why would we do that? I'm almost done but I always have to leave a few things to get right before Christmas. My philosophy is that if I get done to soon I'll just keep shopping anyways so why get done early?? So if you are a procrastinator like me you can use that line too! Ok enough of that stuff...on to the recipe. I love lasagna but it takes so long to make and well when you get home at 6:00 from work you just don't want to wait another two hours for supper so I found a lasagna recipe that is for the crockpot....here it is!
