Mixed Veggies with Peanut Sauce (slow cooker style)

Yum! Peanut Sauce and Veggies – what could be bad?!?! As you know I often use the slow cooker because it is so easy and mostly comes out delicious! This was a great example of a perfect meal that could not have been easier! I usually use the slow cooker on Sundays. In the morning I prep and set in the slow cooker and then go on with our day. When we come home we have a deelish and easy meal with minimal clean-up. What could be better for a relaxing Sunday!?!
