Low Carb Crockpot Southwestern Pork Stew Recipe

Nothing is ever easy, is it? As I write this, the packers from the moving company are over an hour late and my husband is on the phone trying to track them down. We have done all the prep work and are entirely prepared for the chaos of packers and movers and now…we wait. We shouldn’t have to wait, but we wait. I don’t like waiting. In fact, I hate waiting and I stink at it. I get very antsy and irritable and I can’t sit still. And lord help the person who crosses me when I am in that mood. But I also have to laugh a little. I mean, isn’t it par for the course for some big glitch to happen when you are moving? That’s why they say that moving is one of the most stressful events in life. And if I can laugh a little, then I can relax a little too. It’s annoying and it certainly complicates things, but my energy is better spent focusing on things that are within my control. Like writing this post while we wait.

Sugar-Free Gingerbread Martinis and a Giveaway!

Get into the holiday spirit with a delicious low carb gingerbread cocktail. Made with new stevia simple syrup for a sugar-free indulgence!

Low Carb Gingerbread Martini CocktailI am well into the Christmas recipe creation and Thanksgiving isn’t for more than a week yet. You might suspect I am one of those wildly organized people who gets way ahead of the game and is always on top of everything. You know, one of those people who remembers to send birthday cards to everyone she knows well in advance and has her children all glammed up in Christmas finery in October for the yearly holiday card photo. You might suspect that, but you’d be wrong. Dead wrong. I am like the opposite of that person. I haven’t sent a birthday card to anyone beyond my immediate family in years and my holiday cards usually arrive between Christmas and New Year’s, if I am lucky. Some years I don’t get around to sending them out at all and they sit neglected in my closet until I shake my head in disgust at myself and toss them into the recycling bin.

However,  I do love Christmas baking and I do tend to get a jump on it early most years. And in my defense, Thanksgiving is quite late this year so it would push back all the holiday prep and cookie-making by almost a week if I were to wait until it was over. A whole week in which cookies were not being made would be wasted time indeed!
