Bacon Roasted Potato Salad

We love Potato Salad, it is a great side that will go with just about anything and it is always a big hit at a Bar B Que, or a cover dish luncheon or supper. I found the inspiration for this recipe on my Linky Party, Full Plate Thursday. In January of 2011, I launched the Thursday Recipe Party where The Greatest Cooks On The Planet Gather every Thursday.One of the Great Cooks that is a regular contributor at the party is Diane at Mamaldiane , she always brings great food and often times inspires me to try a recipe or develop a whole new approach to an old classic. She recently shared a Potato Salad at the party that inspired this recipe that we just love and hope you will enjoy it! Roasted Potato and Bacon Salad Bacon Roasted Potato Salad Miz Helen's Kitchen Inspired By Diane At Mamaldiane Ingredients 6 slices bacon, cooked crisp and drained well Potatoes 2 pounds of small white and red potatoes, skin on, chopped 2 tablespoons olive oil 2 teaspoons salt 1 teaspo

Slow Cooker Bar B Que Pork Roast

I am always on the search for recipes that will save me time and energy, as most of you are as well. When school starts and we begin our fall activities some of our days can get really busy. This is a great Slow Cooker recipe that will have folks asking at the front door, what's cooking that smells so good, when do we eat? This roast is so tender it can be sliced and served on a dinner plate or sliced and chopped to be served on a bun. The flavor is just as good as the smell and the sauce can be served on the side.We really enjoy this Slow Cooker Bar B Q Pork Roast and hope you will enjoy it! Slow Cooker Bar B Que Pork Roast Slow Cooker Bar B Que Pork Roast Miz Helen's Kitchen Ingredients 3 pound Pork Roast (I use a Boston Butt) 1 tablespoon olive oil For The Rub 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon pepper 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder 1 teaspoon paprika 1 teaspoon Creole Seasoning (I use Tony Chachere's) For The Sauce 1 cup of your favorite Bar B Que

Whats For Dinner Next Week 8-24-14

We have been so busy finishing the summer garden and our canning projects, it is hard to believe that we are going into the last week of August. How do you use your left overs in your meal planning? One of the meal planning tips that I use when planning a menu is to plan the left overs and make them really work for you and that is exactly what I am doing this week. I just make enough so that the meat or a side dish can be used in a different way and it becomes a whole new dish. Be sure and let me know how you use your left overs.
