Exciting News and the Crockpot Challenge

How have y'all been? We have doing great!

I know I have mentioned this to y'all before, but we are foster parents. We have a heart for children. We have a heart for families. We have a heart for a lost and hurting world/ people.

I know it has been sooooo long since my last recipe or post but, it's all for good reason.

We have been caring for our "new edition"!!!

Our foster son is coming home from the hospital!! He has been in the hospital since birth.

So...after 53 days.... I will put him in his car seat for the very first time. He will be able to feel the sunlight on his face for the VERY first time. To feel the cool, brisk autumn wind... His first for everything! We can't wait until tomorrow!! God is so good and so very faithful. To HIM be the Glory!

So...with a newborn baby, we need to have a crokpot challenge!

I challenge y'all for 4 weeks. Get our crockpots out and fire em' up!! I challenge you to use your crockpot at least once a week for 4 weeks. Share your ideas and recipes. Let us know what you are making. Share your masterpieces. smile.

Using your crockpot will free up your time in the kitchen!!!!
Crockpots are stress free!

So...what are y'all planning to make?

I am gonna start us off by making Barbecue...shredded pork sandwiches.

A family favorite!!

Later in the week, I think I am gonna try and make a Chocolate Lava Cake in the crockpot.(new recipe) Dessert in the crockpot? Yes, I am gonna give it a shot.

Counting our Blessings!

    White Lightening Chili by Stephanie Sprouse
    Put a bag of dry white northern beans in crockpot on high and cover with water. Continue to check every couple of hours to see if more water needs to be added. When beans have swollen & absorbed water(@ aprox 2hrs on high) Cook beans for 6-8 hrs on low or overnight, then add in chopped onions, chopped & cooked chicken, canned diced onions or salsa. You can purchase white chili seasoning pouch mixes by Mcormack or use reg. chili seasoning mix. Serve with tortilias, sour cream & shredded cheese, Yum!
