Today at Sandra's, Diary of a Stay at Home Mom, the host of slow cooking Thursday is having a contest. Summit a recipe and you could win a new slower cooker. Also check out every one's great recipes.
I thought I would summit Mexican recipes. I love me some Mexican food, my favorite. Make my mouth watering just thinking about it. It sounds a lot better than the Fiber One Cereal I just ate.
