Crockpot Ravioli

Fall weather brings out crockpot season. I suppose that for some people crockpot season is year round…but not in our house.

I know that it is silly, but I feel lazy using a crockpot. I’m not saying that it is lazy…I just feel weird not “slaving away” over the stove to make a delicious meal for C.J.

It is completely weird to think that. I also am slightly afraid that the crockpot will catch fire and then I will never live down burning our house down with “insert name of dish”.

This is also a silly thought…our crockpot is almost brand new and I always cook it on low if I am going to leave it.

Anyways, sometimes, I will break out the crockpot. This recipe was easy and was good. I wouldn’t say it was mind-blowingly awesome, but it was tasty.

It made the house smell good too.
