I get lots of inspiration from Pinterest…have you tried it yet, if not, you should! This tasty recipe I found while skimming a different recipe someone had pinned. Turns out this chick has a Make 5 Dinners in One Hour blog and while reading along, I found this. But most importantly, I found a GREAT website with fabulous recipes that will make my life easier, a slow cooker recipe at that! And that’s what it’s about – spending less time on the mundane so I get to spend more time on the important. Family, reading, relaxing…unwind and enjoy. Life’s way too short.
