Crock Pot Chile Verde
Hey Fam!  How are you doing with the quarantine?

I am really enjoying this time with my family to be honest. Another perk to a clear schedule is the time to work on projects that have been pushed to the background.  I am taking full advantage of it. Landscape projects, taxes, ya know all the fun stuff.  LOL 

I know it's not a fun time for everyone and I want to say that we as a family are praying for everyone negatively effected by this crisis.  I am also trying to look for all the silver lining I can in this situation. There really does seem to be a lot of it if we look hard enough. 

Wishing you wellness friend,
