As long as this winter has seemed (it is snowing as I type...on this sixth day of spring!), somehow this recipe series has sped by, and suddenly it is Week 12 and time to wrap it up. (The series, not the winter. I am not in charge of that.)
I have decided to end the series with my hands down favorite slow cooker recipe ever. I have shared it before here on the blog, but I am going to post it again for any new readers as I don't want you to miss it. ~smile~
Whenever we visit Ryan and Sarah, or when they visit us, this is the first meal we eat together. It has become a family favorite and full of special meaning and family memories!
How fitting that we ate this meal tonight, on the eve of their ninth anniversary!
~ Happy Anniversary, Ryan and Sarah! ~
...with much love

* I use whole sprigs of rosemary from my herb garden. (Little grands who are often my guests don't like the bits of rosemary in the beef. I put the whole sprigs in for that wonderful rosemary flavor, and then take out the sprigs and the littles are none the wiser.)
** I sometimes take a shortcut by cooking on HIGH for 3-4 hours, then turning down to LOW to keep it warm until serving time.
