Hi gang! Happy Wednesday!
The sun came out last week, and the temperature rose so much that the kids were in shorts! I actually considered swapping out our dresser drawers with spring and summer outfits. But then I came to my senses. Which was a good thing…because it’s cold and rainy again.
I also got back out my soup recipes, which had been shelved.
And the timing of my latest Smithfield box couldn’t have been better! I was in the mood for some comfort food.
Smithfield marinated fresh pork is perfectly pre-seasoned with the prep work already done for you. Simply grill, roast, saute, or put it in the slow cooker for an easy weeknight meal. It’s a fantastic go-to for a delicious, hassle-free dinner that’s ready in about 30 minutes.
They’re available in an assortment of flavors like Roasted Garlic & Cracked Black Pepper, Slow Roasted Golden Rotisserie, or Applewood Smoked Bacon, and also a variety of fresh cuts, including loin filets, sirloins, and tenderloins, making it a perfect fit for all cooking styles and dishes – plus, it can also be sliced or cubed for even faster cooking.
I put this Sweet and Smoky Pork Roast in the crock pot with some chicken broth and onions and it was so delicious, I could have stopped there! But I decided to make a casserole. So glad I did. This was a big hit with the family!
