I love chili. I love easy recipes. And I love crock-pots. 

Speaking of night as my husband and I were laying in bed he leaned over towards me, gave me a kiss and a hug and then said the following words... 

"I love you my little crock-pot"

Now I do not know where he got this term of endearment from, but I thought it was halarious. Now whenever I use the crock-pot I think of my husband's oh so romantic words to me.
