We love our Crock Pot. Even during the warm summer months…just pair whatever you cook with a nice crisp salad and it won’t feel so “warm”.

For this recipe instead of using lots of veggies in our crock, we used a bunch of citruses to pair with the Chek Orange Pineapple Soda (we usually use Dr. Pepper, but wanted to make something, not as “heavy”).
