Guess what?!? It’s finally here! FALL! This is my favorite time of year. The temps are still a little warm here in Oklahoma but I can see a light at the end of the summer tunnel. Fall means college football, crisp morning air, changing leaves, cardigans and slow cookers. Ahhhh, the slow cooker.
A few weeks ago my friends at Red Gold Tomatoes sent me a box of canned tomatoes with lots of slow cooker recipes. They even sent me a Red Gold Official Blogger wooden spoon. I really love this spoon but something about it made me giggle.
Ohhhhh….look, I’m all official now. Better watch out or I might whack you over the head with my official blogger spoon if you get out of line. I take my tomato blogging very seriously…cuz I’m official.
Back to the slow cooker. All of the recipes included sound delicious; slow cooker pulled pork, black bean and pumpkin chili, slow cooker mac & cheese, sausage & sweet potato chili. Oh yum. I’m making the sausage & sweet potato chili this weekend but for this post I made the slow cooker rustic italian chicken. Visit the Red Gold website for all these yummy recipes and check out their slow cooker giveaway on Facebook. They are giving away two crockpots everyday through October 8. I know I certainly could use one. I think my trusty Rival crock pot was a wedding gift…14 years ago.
Before checking out the other recipes…have a gander at this one.
