THE BEST SLOW-COOKER SPAGHETTI SAUCE....ENTERTAINING MADE EASY
Oh the magic of the Christmas season.
I like how this is going. Easy and slow......
Miss Tessa, over at Here There Be Musing, made a comment
that we need not get in a "tizzy" over decorating our homes for the season!
She was so right!
How heart warming to take a peek out the windows
and see Christmas lights all aglow in the neighborhood!
Each day, the kitchen is taking on a few more pieces of Christmas decor!
This is setting the mood for the beginning of delicious food being prepared for our
infamous Christmas Eve gathering!
So as we all go about the task of creating the special feeling of the Christmas season,
this delicious recipe will help you serve up a fabulous meal for your loved ones,
with the ease of your slow-cooker!
The fantastic aroma of a good spaghetti sauce simmering away, and
Judy Garland singing "I'll Be Home for Christmas"....
it's home for the holidays!
