Washers and Grinders

As you all know, I have a slight addiction to Pinterest.  I love it!  Most of what I do anymore all comes from there.  I used a pin to clean my washer last week and it was amazing!  I've never in my life done this or thought to do this before, but why not?  Between kids and my hubby being a mechanic for hobby and for a job, (His clothes are always nasty!) I do alot of laundry.  I pinned How to Clean your Washer and wow!  I always thought that it self-cleans, but no.  Do this!!

The other thing I'm always looking up and trying from Pinterest is new recipes for my slow cooker.  My husband is a sandwich lover, so I like to find new ones to try every now and then other the then usual.  He recently was changing out the engine on his truck and had some of the guys he works with over to help.  I wanted to make them all lunch, but new they'd want something they could grab and eat.  I tried these Crock pot Grinders.  They took me very little time to make and were a huge hit!  I used different meat then she suggested.  I used ham, hard salami, beef cotta salami and pepperoni.  I still used provolone cheese and the banana peppers.  (She mentions that they had one small square on their sandwiches that were soggy and I had the same.  I don't think it's from the moisture in the crock pot, but from the grease/oils in the meats that causes it.  So just be warned about that.)  The guys all like them so much, that I didn't even get to try one!  I guess that's a good sign.  :)  I'll definitely make these again and save one for me next time too.
