On the Road in June

I’m sorry, but I’m just not ready for it to be July! I mean, seriously! Are you ready?! 

I guess we have no choice, right? So, on that note, let’s take a look at the top five posts here on the blog for the *sniff sniff* month of June!

February-4

EASY Crock Pot BBQ Ribs – with Stubb’s BBQ Sauces! GIVEAWAY INCLUDED!

**PLEASE NOTE: While Stubb’s DID provide me with these products to review at no cost, I was not in any way paid for my review. The following opinion is hereby my own.**

The 4th of July is practically upon us! (Can you believe that?!) The year is flying by, y’all!

When I think of the 4th of July, I think of BBQ. I mean, doesn’t everyone?! In fact, I think of BBQ when I think of most summer gatherings! Cookouts, pool parties, picnics…BBQ. And when it comes to BBQ, there’s no brand I love more than Stubb’s.

STUBB'S LEGENDARY BAR-B-Q LOGO

BBQ is BBQ, you might say. You’ve had one kind of sauce, you’ve had them all! NOPE! Not true! You know why?

Stubb’s BBQ products are all-natural, gluten-free and non GMO. Plus, their sauces don’t use any of that nasty high-fructose corn syrup! They average out at about 20 calories and 110 milligrams of sodium per tablespoon. And trust me, you don’t miss all the “junk”. These products, from their sauces, to their marinades to their rubs, lack nothing when it comes to flavor!

So I decided to do something a bit different this year…

My hubby LOVES BBQ, and he’s a fan of ribs, too! He had just made mention to me not long ago that I had never made him any ribs, and I mentioned back to him that he had never grilled ME any ribs! HA! We laughed and left it at that, because we live in Florida, and let me tell you…IT’S WAY TOO HOT FOR GRILLING RIGHT NOW! 

Hence the crock pot idea. Of course!

I picked up two flavors of the yummy Stubb’s BBQ sauces and about 5 pounds of ribs (boneless this time).

Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili – A Guest Post!

I’m on a big slow cooker kick here recently. (If you follow me on Pinterest, you’re probably rolling your eyes and nodding right now, ha!) To me, there’s just not much better than coming home from work to a house that smells like dinner – where said dinner is already DONE and waiting for you! I mean, really! It’s fabulous! So when the lovely Elizabeth Gay contacted me about this post, I was understandably receptive! Let’s see how SHE uses HER slow cooker!

Thanks so much to Kristen for having me on her fabulous blog!

I’m writing from the Windy City of Chicago where we just got 18 inches of snow this week. Cold, wet, blustery days like this call for hearty comfort food. For that, I turn to my slow cooker. This recipe for White Chicken Chili fits the bill: it’s hearty and filling without being too indulgent (so we can all stay on those New Year’s resolutions…). It’s loaded with protein and fiber, and can be totally customized to your tastes. This recipe uses Ro*Tel Original canned tomatoes, but if you can handle the heat, feel free to use the spicy version – or the mild if you’re serving picky eaters. The best part is that it makes your house smell fantastic as it cooks away all day!

Thighs are the most tender cut of chicken, but if you prefer breasts you can use those instead.

If I have them on hand, I add diced carrots or zucchini for an extra serving of veggies (or whatever vegetable might be getting old in your fridge right now).

On the Road in June

We are now past the halfway point of 2014. Just pause for a moment and let that sink in. I mean, MY WORD. (How are you doing on your New Year’s resolutions?! HA!)

So when we begin a new month here on The Road to Domestication, I like to take a look back over the previous month! And here, in no particular order, are the top five posts of June!

1. And Over on Pinterest – I’m kinda surprised that this one made the list, honestly! I kinda just put my Pinterest process out there for everyone to see what they thought!
