slow cooker turkey dip sandwiches recipeWe had such a great weekend.  We made a quick trip to Omaha to visit my friend Alison of thishomemadelife.com.  It was a wonderful visit, filled with new friends, wonderful food, and s’mores.  People rarely cook for me, and nothing makes happier than going to someones house for dinner.  So to have Alison cook dinner for me was a huge treat.  Her home is so warm and inviting.  Being a food blogger has introduced me to some of the most incredible people.  If I had never started Baked Bree, I would have missed out on so many wonderful experiences, not to mention friends.

The last few weeks have been really crazy around here.  I really was naive to think that when the kids went back to school that I would have so much time during the day.  In some ways, I do, but it amazes me how quickly 3:20 rolls around and the big kids come home.  I have spent a lot less time online, and more time involved with teaching a class, volunteering in the kid’s classrooms, and trying to be more present when everyone is home.

I recently did some work for tablespoon.com and fell in love with my slow cooker all over again.  I love to start dinner in the morning by throwing some things into my slow cooker and letting it slow cook all day.  Days when I do not have a plan in place, or something ready to go, they just do not run as smoothly.  Recipes like this turkey dip sandwich save my life during busy weeks.  It is easy, delicious, and everyone in my family looks forward to it.
