Mama Bear is Sad!

I know it's a natural progression of life, but that isn't comforting me right now. My oldest cub (21 yrs) just left the den. We dropped him off at the station and he's taking a shuttle to O'Hare. He has a one-way flight to LAX. He's off to start his career in Los Angeles.
I know that he's a smart kid and that we've given him a good foundation, but that doesn't stop me from worrying and being sad. It's just so strange to think of just 4 of us living here. I had a friend take some family photos of us recently so we can mark this time in our lives.
I've done pretty good leading up to today, but now the waterworks are non-stop. The hardest was seeing him say goodbye to his little sister.
I'm going to miss that kid!!

Easy Crock Pot Kielbasa

We had a going away party for my son over the weekend and I made a new recipe. This German inspired Kielbasa is super easy to put together and cook in a slow cooker.
Easy Crock Pot Kielbasa Recipe
Easy Crockpot Kielbasa
2 lbs of Kielbasa
1 cup of brown sugar
3 tablespoons of mustard (I used Dijon)
jar of apple slices (or slice your own)
jar of sauerkraut
Slice the Kielbasa into 1/2 to 1 inch slices. Layer in crock pot with brown sugar and mustard. Top with apple slices (I drained the jar) and sauerkraut. Cook on high for 2.5 hours or low for 5 hours.
The house smelled fantastic and when people walked in they wanted to know what it was.
It got gobbled up because it was so delicious. I am glad I made double. Several people asked for the recipe. I am not a huge fan of sausage, but I loved it. I am definitely making this again!
