Morning! Ugh this cold weather is REALLY making it hard to get up in the morning.
OK, I have 2 must try ingredients for ya.
Nolan and I are huge fans of these Green Giant Steamers. There is a wide variety of bags, and they make perfect sides to our carnivorous meals. HOWEVER, we recently discovered another great use for them:
Good thing I married Mr. Outside the box, because I would never have thought to use these veggies in this way! The portion in the bag was just right for stuffing 2 -2 egg omelets! Pure genius.
Last month a coworker of mine had a Pampered Chef party. I couldn’t go, but I DID order a few new spice rubs to try out.
Last night we defrosted a pork tenderloin and decided to give the Applewood rub a try!
Holy bacon! Pork + Applewood = bacon!
It formed a nice crust on the top of the pork, and gave it a great bacony flavor. It really did have a smokey flavor, which probably would have been even more irresistible if it had been cooked on the grill instead of the oven.
I just love discovering new ingredients!
Alright, time to hit the road.
