Skip the takeout! Dinner is easy and delicious with this Slow Cooker Beef & Broccoli recipe!
As much as I love our house and where we live, it does have its drawbacks. For one, we don’t have any sort of pizza delivery where we live. It was a huge adjustment not being able to pick up the phone or go online and have food delivered. That also means that when we want to go anywhere or do anything, we have a little bit of a drive. In this case, thank goodness for my slow cooker!!
Like many areas across the country, Phoenix took a big hit when the housing market crashed. Although the market was rebounding when we bought our home, we were fortunate enough to be able to get into our house while the market was still low. We bought in an area where half-built houses were literally abandoned. We have hundreds of empty lots in our subdivision.
The market is FINALLY in a place where the builders are back and people are buying new houses in our area … which means we have new construction coming into our subdivision. I admit it’s kinda exciting to see the growth. Call it selfish, but I think I am most looking forward to having businesses move in … a closer grocery store, gas station, and everything that comes with a growing housing market.
