Use a slow cooker to help with holiday meal

| |Tuesday, Nov. 04, 2014

As the days drift into true fall, I am reminded of years past when we prepared for the upcoming holidays and my family took time to plan the meals together. I think I took for granted that my parents would always be there to fix too much food and way too many recipes that everyone treasured. Now it's the Mikester and me trying to create the same wonderful traditions and memories for our family. Let's take the time this year to invite folks over who may not have a place to go and eat a dinner during the holidays, or we can volunteer to help serve meals to others.
