It's The Most Wonderful, But Busy Time of Year | The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans LLC


I don’t know about you, but I feel like I am meeting myself coming and going lately. We go to school through December 21 and that doesn’t give me much time before Christmas to get a lot done. I’ve been trying to not let cooking right go by the wayside.

I have found that at busy times like now, my crockpot is one of my very best friends. With a little meal planning at the beginning of the week, we can have yummy and healthy meals at home when it would just be easier to just grab something in a drive up or restaurant.

Sometimes I go to the old tried and true recipes that I have made for years. A lot of times, I make some of the great recipes from right here at Shrinking Jeans. Other times I make some of the newer ones that I have come across on Facebook and Twitter. But lately, I have found lots of yummy recipes on a website I came across called

With the cold weather finally starting to set in here in northwest Indiana, my family loves a good hearty meal of any kind of soup or stew. Eat Well doesn’t disappoint in this department. They have some really good recipes with low calories. It’s a win/win situation.

Here are the links to some of our favorite recipes I found there.
Southwestern Three Bean and Barley Soup

Chicken and Sweet Potato Stew

Hungarian Beef Goulash

These are just a few of the recipes we have tried. Check out and see what you think. I can tell you one thing for sure. It tastes great and you’ll give yourself a little extra time by using your crockpot.
