I knew first thing this morning that it was going to be a very busy day for our family. I was prepared and got my slow cooker going with one of our favorite’s – black bean soup. Everyone hit the ground running and I said my prayers, gave hugs, kisses and told ’em I’d see them soon.
Along with the soup, I chopped up some fresh fruit and made a piping hot cast iron skillet of cheese & green chili cornbread. It’s great food for a busy family!
