For years my husband has commented to friends when discussing epicurean topics, “I’ve noticed at our house there doesn’t seem to be much between gourmet and sandwiches for dinner,” followed by casting a look in my direction to which I respond, “It’s true!” But after 38+ years of marriage, I have decided to surprise him during holiday sales season this year.
I have been thinking about getting ready for the holidays this year. One of the major tasks before me is preparing our home to list for sale in the spring, so participating in the Etsy Holiday Boot Camp cannot be fitted onto my dance card along with working at the hospital along with a gigantic to do list for holiday selling and marketing for….can you spell V-A-L-E-N-T-I-N-E-S day?
Today I decided to take a little break and visit EverythingEtsy.com to find 101 Simple Handmade Gifts and worth a visit. Then I made a tour of posts on the FB Hide A Heart Fan Page where I found PREPARATION H-H IS FOR HOLIDAYS! posted by Tim at Handmadeology.com.
Scrolling down the Preparation H handy-dandy post I came across the category: You (and Your Family) and the words ‘crock pot’ caught my attention. Hmmm…Since there is nothing between gourmet (I belong to a Julia Child Supper Club) and sandwiches (in the winter I add a cup of soup!) at, what I fondly refer to as our ‘House of Hide A Heart’, it got me to thinking……
My favorite online site for recipes is Epicurious.com where many of the recipes are rated for ease and success. But I know there are some of you out there that have TRIED-N-TRUE crock-pot recipes! So, I’m putting out an APB (all points bulletin!) soliciting your help. Are you game?
Between November 5-December 10
- Send a link to the crock-pot recipe you favor
- Scan/send your favorite crock-pot recipe to firstname.lastname@example.org
In return, a Hide A Heart goes to the person supplying the crock-pot recipe I make for my husband that he declares as his favorite! I will contact the winner, so make sure to leave an email or your Etsy Shop name.
I’m really looking forward to hearing from you!
