Spring definitely is here ; we had very cold winter - not much of snow coming as I don't remember that my kid not going school due to the weather, we were lucky compare to the other states, but the freezing cold was almost everyday . Layer of layer of clothes is MUST when you decide to go out , even just to drop kid to school near by.
And since I go work everyday after drop kid to school , my very helpful kitchen appliance that I love so much is slow cooker pot . Just toss everything into the pot before go work, set the timer and everything is ready when every one back home in the afternoon. One of recipe I love too is Moroccan Harira - easy to cook yet so healthy ..
