Showering with Love Friday, Jul 20 2012 

Last Saturday was filled with family, friends, and food. My sister’s co-worker hosted a baby shower for her. It was so much fun and I am thankful I was able to be here to be apart of it. Activities included each guest designing a scrapbook page that would be put in an album, decorating onesies, and trying to guess various baby items hidden in opaque bags. The food was also wonderful and included various finger food. I made pizza dip

Four on the Fourth Wednesday, Jul 4 2012 

I realized that this marks my fourth post on the fourth. My Fourth of July holiday involved using the crockpot for the first time (gasp) to make these

They were most definitely fall off the bone delicious. Rounding out the meal were baked beans, baked potatoes and salad. I cannot wait to try this recipe again for my dad. This might also have made me a crockpot convert.

Happy Independence Day!

Here is the recipe my sister used a few days ago. She also adds about 1 T. creamy peanut butter to the mixture.

It was delicious and will be a regular in the future.
