{ Slow Cooking Thursday }

December 1st, my word where has the year flown?

Just 24 more days and it's Christmas, I can't even believe that we're this close and I have yet to buy one single present LOL  But I AM going to start this morning so hopefully I'll be done soon.

Anyway, here's today's Slow Cooking Thursday.  I haven't tried this one yet but it looks really good.
