Rise and Shine is my way of sitting down and having a cup of coffee with you! We talk about the new deals of the day, highlights from yesterday, and anything else that might help us save time, money or energy. Published Monday through Friday – as I’m able.
Good morning! How’s it going today? So yesterday I tried a random slow cooker recipe. I had brussels sprouts in the fridge and bacon. Generally – if you cook the two together, it’s a thing of beauty (see my Brussels Sprouts with Bacon recipe here). So I lined the bottom of the crockpot with uncooked center-cut bacon, tossed in my washed/trimmed brussels sprouts, and turned it to high. I was foolish to think it would be so simple. Not only does my house smell DREADFUL but the result was a vat of greasy cabbage. My husband, at first, thought it was delicious – and had a bowl. He regrets it today. So today I’ll be adding a few extra layers of clothing so I can open the windows and air out the nastiness. I took out ground turkey from the freezer last night and will try and come up with a new recipe for today.
Yesterday I did share this recipe for Slow Cooker Ranch Porch Chops. It’s ain’t pretty. I’m not pretending it is. But it is so easy and it really is delicious. I hope you like it as much as our family does.
And speaking of Crock-Pots, I see Amazon rolled out a bunch of $5 coupons on Crock-Pots this morning! As soon as I make my son some eggs for breakfast and get him to school, I’ll go through the list coupons and do a post. Hopefully they make for some BEST prices.
