Friday blogaround

Happy Friday, everyone! Let's get to it!

A great post about using your slow cooker in the summer.  I use my slow cooker in the summer--maybe more often than I do in winter.  It's great for cooking meals without heating up your entire kitchen.  Slow cookers are not just for heavy stews, as Stephanie shows.

More Americans work in the underground economy. That's thanks to long-term unemployment, unemployment benefits expiring, and people going through their savings.  Of course, the article had a note about the tax revenue lost to the underground economy.  Well, maybe that wouldn't be an issue if these folks could get jobs. Unfortunately, most employers won't even look at the resume of someone who's been out of work for a long time.

Have a great weekend, everybody!


  1. I don't think I've ever seen recipes for salmon in the crockpot. Interesting.

  2. Just checked out the slow cooker link, I hadn't thought about using one to cook fish in parchment! What a great idea!
