    This recipe was so tasty!! I tend to avoid using my slow cooker despite it’s stellar convenience properties because it seems every meal ultimately ends up tasting similar. HOWEVER. This meal stands out thanks to the fresh flavours and coconut milk. My husband gave it high praises as well! Thanks for a tasty meal Lauren!
