This Chow Babe's theme was "crock pot" with a red factor. We were requested to wear red (reason to be revealed at the gathering) in celebration of our host passing through menopause.
Here are two that are sure to delight, with ease and taste. There were so many good ones; my favorite was the macaroni and cheese.
Do you have any good crock-pot recipes? Tell me and I will add them to our many on Chow Babes ... as we said today, the unsung-hero-appliance of the kitchen. The conversation quickly deteriorated to the subject of Britney's hair and Anna Nicole's baby father ... after we had eaten, of course. (My co-author-Chow-Babe- hates that this a orange type, but I know you know, if you want to print it out in black, copy it over to word, or email and copy from there in black;)
And one of our Chow Babes is having her own babe!
