You convinced me. I'd dragging the crockpot out of hibernation and making it this weekend. That allows me to get out and about on Saturday and come home to a warm, welcoming dinner. And this dinner is already warming the cockles of my being.

It's the season for the crockpot. One of my favorite kitchen "aides" especially for warm winter meals.
That chicken caccatorie looks so good! Perfect for the c/pot AND a super Sunday dinner.
Love it!
