Dinner tonight

This morning I took my kids to a Children's day camp at a church where they attended Vacation Bible School. I'm hoping maybe we could do something like this at our church in the future. It is only one day a week for the month of July from 9:00-11:30. We didn't get there this morning until after 9:30. For some reason I was thinking it started at 11:00. The kids seemed to have a good time though.

I have dinner in the slow cooker ready to be served tonight. I also made some for a friend who just had surgery. I love slow cooker recipes because you just put it in there and walk away. Easy peasey. I also made some bread which is already ready. Both of these are Tastefully Simple recipes.
