Day 13 of 31 Days of Lor-cipes, My Christmas Gift to You
Like you, I want to serve nutritious, tasty meals every evening. But during this crazy-busy month, that isn't always easy. That's why I rely heavily on my trusty crock pot, and oh, what a delicious relief, at the end of a deadline day, to put that tasty supper on the table!
I'd like to share that mood and that food with you, so I'm sharing family-tested favorite recipes in the hope you'll experience those same blessed sensations. Try this one, and if you like it, post a photo on my Facebook author's page, and I'll add your name to my Santa hat so you can win a prize basket (a $100 value) filled with New Year's fun.
It's early. There's plenty of time to hunt down these ingredients and put this on the supper table, tonight:
