I have recently stumbled across this great website called Pinterest. What is Pinterest you ask? It is a neat website that you can see pictures of ... well... just about anything, literally. Recipes, beautiful beaches, organizational tips and tricks, things for the house, crafts for the kids, anything. Once you join, if you find a picture/idea that you like, you can "repin" it to your own wall. That lets you save it to your board while also sharing it with your friends.
While searching on Pinterest, I found some great crock pot recipes! In the winter time, I LOVE making hearty meals in the crock pot! I just love everything about a delicious warm meal that makes the entire house smell good!
I have been looking forward to using the crock pot so much that I found a yummy recipe on Pinterest and made it for supper last night! It's Crock Pot Ravioli. My version isn't exactly like that one, but we thought it was pretty good! I couldn't find the Five Cheese Ravioli at my WalMart, they only had Beef Ravioli. I also used 1 jar of sauce along with 1 can of pizza sauce. It started off with just the jar of sauce, but it seemed to get a little dry, so I added the only thing that I had. I didn't take pictures, because at the time, I wasn't thinking about blogging about the recipe. I wasn't sure how it would be. I definitely plan to make it again. (I promise I'll take pictures!) The hubby and kiddos loved it! Next time, I'll look for the Five Cheese Ravioli and I also plan to add meatballs to the sauce. It was a very good and cheap meal. The bag of ravioli was $2.27 and the jar of sauce was (I think) $1.33. I added some garlic bread that I had in the freezer already and I had some fresh green beans that I cooked on the stove. The entire meal fed a family of 4 and gave us enough left overs for lunch for the baby and only cost about $5. Can't beat that, right??
