Lola's Cookbook for a picky husband

Lola's Cookbook for a picky husband

I have a husband who won't touch seafood of any kind, nor will he do many veggies, though I'm working on that one. Plus, I live out of my slow-cooker, I just never have enough ideas for it.
Most of the comments are to myself, but feel free to use them.
