Crockpots and Casseroles is going to be a recurring link up with Jessica, my sweet friend behind the blog Gingham and Lattes. If you caught her announcement post a few weeks ago, she mentioned that this whole idea started with a joke about how military spouses should all have at least a crockpot and a casserole dish (okay, and and an Instant Pot since I’m already breaking the rules).
