Brrrr.  I don’t know about you, but today I could feel the chill in the air when I left the house this morning.  Autumn is on its way.  Football games, tailgate parties, cozy blankets, and crisp air.  My favorite season!  One of my favorite things to do during the chilly Autumn season is to cook meals in my Crockpot so the whole house smells yummy and inviting… and I can laze the day away with a warm blanket and a good book.

Since the crispness is there today, I am going to share a delicious bonus recipe today for Slow Cooker Spicy Macaroni and Cheese, courtesy of our friends at Red Gold®!  Of course, I had to tweak this a bit – we all know I like my foods hot!  But, even if you don’t add the jalapenos like we did, this is a delicious and whole-meal recipe that is so simple to make!
