Notes

I am getting ready to move half way across the country next week in the middle of the holidays! While packing an entire house and finishing up at work, I still have to cook dinner, Christmas shop, and try to use up anything left in my fridge and freezer. It's a little hectic, so simple food that is stress free works perfectly! I made this crock pot meal to get rid of a few bottled condiments and 2 big pork loins in one go. Plus, the prep took five minutes, and all I needed to do later was make some noodles!
