  1. This sounds great-minus the green olives-lol! I am archiving our Scrumptious Sunday posts on the SS page of Mercedes Rocks so we have them right at our fingertips-hehe! Let me know if you want to be added to the blogroll (SS or Hump Day Humor).

  3. Shannon, I've just made my first slow-cooker recipe and it turned out very nicely. Thanks for the inspiration to take part in the meme. Now I intend to try yours, which sounds delicious (green olives, apricots, and all)
