Easy Crockpot Spaghetti Sauce and Apple Salad for Cooking Thursday
This spaghetti sauce recipe is one of my "go to" recipes. I make this when I know I am going to have a busy or stressful day and I know that dinner will be easy and be something that everyone in the house will enjoy.
I am not much of a fruit eater but I really liked this apple salad recipe. It makes a lot and was even good for breakfast the next day.
