I am a total dork when it comes to celebrities. I know they put on their pants one leg at a time like I do but still. I get star struck. There are 2 sets of celebrity I am enamored with, musicians and food bloggers. I have a list way too long of musicians that I love. I've mentioned a few here - Taylor, Tobymac, Sam Hunt, Lady Antebellum, Rascal Flatts. Ok, I'll stop now. Food bloggers is the other one. I pride myself in the fact that I was a follower of The Pioneer Woman long before she was famous. We will be fast friends if we ever have the chance to meet. Her cookbooks and dishware are staples in my kitchen. And the other one of my food blogger crushes is Mix and Match Mama aka Shay Shull. Her brother was "The Bachelor" once, which makes her even cooler. She lives in the same town as my brother and his family. I keep my eyes out for her anytime we are visiting. She just came out with a cookbook that my sister-in-law was kind enough to surprise gift me in the mail. I'll be carrying that in my purse my next visit and be annoying fan asking her to sign it when I see her, because I plan on introducing myself to her as well. So I'm trying it out this week!
So what's for dinner tonight? Mexican Minestrone. Page 97. A bonus of many of her recipes is they are crockpot recipes.
E to the Z my friends. And delicious. You need this book and you need to try this recipe.
She didn't pay me or give me anything free to write this blog. I'm just sharing the dinnertime love.
