      You’re so welcome! I hope you enjoy them! The second one has hamburger in it, but I think you could figure out a way around it if you added more of everything else.

    That sweet potato chili is one of my all-time favorites. In fact, I made it last weekend! Have never tried that zucchini recipe, but it’s now on my list. Love zucchini!

      Me too! I could eat it every day I think. Hope you like the other one just as much!

    Well, I already gave you my favorite crock-pot recipe here:


    Another favorite is this Pork Shoulder with Apple Jelly:


    I usually shred the leftovers and add our favorite Eastern Carolina BBQ sauce for sandwiches.

      That’s right! I haven’t even made it yet since we’ve been trying to cut back on sweets. I have it saved in my Evernote file though :D

      I’ve never had pork shoulder before (that I know of), but will have to try it! We do love pulled pork sandwiches.

        If you love pulled pork then you’ve definetly had pork shoulder. Pulled pork is often made from pork shoulder. The cut is often called Boston Butt (the butt actually refers to the barrels, or “butts”, that pork was stored in back in Colonial America. Also where the term pork barrel spending comes from. How do I know this much about pork?).

        Lol. How DO you know so much about pork? I’m impressed!
