Sandra at hosts Slow Cooking Thursday, a crock pot recipe exchange.  Check it out.  I love my crock pot.  There are days we would never eat anything but cold cereal if I didn’t have mine set up.

Here’s my contribution for this week:

This looks delicious.  I’ve never made anything with winter squash before.
