Thoughtless Thursday: The Not Good Kind

Posted on

I was making chili.  After the lapsang souchong chili last week, hubby requested the regular kind.  So I had that going in one crock pot.  And I was experimenting with a pork vegetable soup in the other crock pot. When I got home I find that I had turned the smaller crock pot with the […]
