I am going to keep this short and simple today.
It’s been a doozy the past few days. Way busier than normal with a few ‘surprise’ *situations* thrown in the mix that have certainly taken some major time and attention.
But there have been some fun projects and opportunities that have been taking up my time recently too, and I can’t wait to share all of those with you.
(Here are a few hints (cuz I love teasing y’all!): a giveaway, added blog features to totally help you and me both navigate the site better, and a few other neat-o things!)
To keep not only this blog post short and simple today, I have and easy “dump and go” crock-pot recipe for ya. Plus it uses pantry staples!
So no matter what curve balls life throws at you (good or bad) and no matter how crazy it all gets, with recipes like these, there are no more excuses not to eat a fantabulous homemade dinner!
PS: Even with life kr-A-zy right now, I didn’t forget about the Hodgson Mill giveaway! Click here to see if you are the winner!
