I'm almost afraid to say so, but I might have just finished my Christmas shopping tonight. I say might because sometimes I see something when I'm out that just needs to be given to somebody in my life, and well, you can't plan for inspiration. But, out of my planned shopping, I can stop as of tonight. The rest of my gifts are homemade, because I think they say more that way.
In light of tonight being a shopping night, I'm blogging late. Saved by the slow cooker, I guess. The recipe I'm posting tonight is actually one I did up last week during my slow cooker kick but didn't have an opportunity to post it until now. So, here, squeaked in before I call it a night, is a treat! I really, really enjoyed this recipe. It's creamy, warm, and has a delicious spice kick to make it anything but bland. It'll be on my repeat list for sure!
