Slow Cooking Thursday!!!8:58 PM
Before I start I want to tell you about something going on in Blogland, for those of you who have been around for a while you may remember the wonderful lady at "Overwhelmed with Joy" hosting the Holiday Cooking Blogger Style last year.
Well she's doing it again and I'm definitely going to be participating, I shared some of my family's favorite Holiday recipes last year and can't wait to share more. So if this is something you're interested in doing, just go on over and read the rules and explanation.
Morning ladies, it's thursday and time for another Slow Cooking Thursday. I'm sporting a new SCT banner so go ahead and update your old ones when you get a chance.
Thank you again to all the participants, I've gotten such a wonderful collection of recipes already and can't wait to see more.
Don't forget to add your name to Mr Linky and a link back to your SCT post so others can come by and see your recipe too.
