Slow Cooker Coq au Vin

Fall off the bone chicken thighs, carrots, and mushrooms are slow cooked all day in a very simple red wine sauce until tender and flavorful in this Slow Cooker Coq au Vin...

Am I the only one who looks ahead to when their kiddos have left home and are in college and think about which things they will miss from home the most? (And I know that many of you have been or currently are in that place with your children.) I am still trying to wrap my mind around the fact that my son will be a high school graduate just 2 years from now. I mean, how do these things happen anyways?? One day I am taking him to Cub Scouts meetings and the next I am helping him register for classes for his freshman year of college. Those of you with little ones- it does happen that fast. Trust me.
