Christmas Eve was at my house this year... With everyone's crazy schedules during the holidays, Christmas Eve is usually the night where the "leftovers" of our family get together after church. Some of my family heads over to the in-laws, some switch back and forth each year, so we never know who will be around. The hubs and I are at a new church that is about 20 minutes away and our service was an hour later then everyone elses. That meant that we had to have something in the crock pot, ready to roll as soon as we walked in the door. We picked ribs this year! It was a great choice and they were gone quickly, even though I tripled the recipe and borrowed extra crockpots!!
