My husband and I have a hard time saying we have a "favorite" anything....especially when it comes to food. But I do have a favorite restaurant. And in that favorite restaurant, I do have a favorite dish.
For Mother's Day my awesome husband did research to find a recipe for that favorite dish and he made it for me! It was DELICIOUS! He did a great GREAT job. He so graciously agreed to let me publish his secret. He served this with fried polenta cakes, which I will have to post another day. YUM!
And who doesn't like a dish done in the crock pot? Honestly, it's easy, AND you get to smell the yumminess all day long. Okay, I take that back. It's not so fun to smell something all day long when you're pregnant. That's never a good thing. Trust me, I know from past experience. But this....this is something to enjoy. So...ENJOY!
