Didn’t we just start spring? That said, this is truly my favorite season. Holiday partiesDrain any grease, return to pan and sea- son with onion and garlic powders, soy and Worcestershire sauces, and salt and pepper. Put mixture into crock pot and add remaining ingredients except for milk. Stir together, cover, and cook on low for 3 to 4 hours (or on high for 1-1⁄2 to 2 hours), stirring occasionally. Just before serving, stir in milk or cream to reach desired consistency. Serve with rippled potato chips, cooked French fries, or mini potatoes.Cheese BoardChoose three of your favorite chees- es, one sharp, one mild, and one soft (like a cream cheese or spreadable blue) and space on serving platter.
