Thursday- Crockpot Steak Fajitas
This is what typically happens at my house: I am busy doing other things, then I look at the clock, and realize it’s already past 5 o’clock and my husband is going to be home in 30 minutes and I still haven’t started dinner. Sound familiar? That is why I LOVE crockpot dinners because I can just throw them together in the morning and forget about it for the rest of the day. This Crockpot Steak Fajitas recipe by Chelsea’s Messy Apron is GREAT tasting and it allows me to forget about dinner. Score!
Friday- Cafe Rio Pork Burritos
