TERRE HAUTE —
We are getting busy with outside work, cleaning yards and planting our gardens, picking berries and also hunting mushrooms. I can’t go out anymore. But I hope you all have found a bunch. This recipe is an easy one to fix. Get your slow cookers out and have a great meal when you are tired. Everyone will think you are full of energy.
When I am so busy I like to use my slow cooker. I make almost anything in this. I can’t count the number I have worn out. My sister gave me one, so now I have two. Make a main dish in one, and you can make a dessert also.
