‘Slow Cooker’ Meal Plan and Tin Foil Dinners
My husband and I were invited on Friday night to a Tin Foil Dinner Party! It was great fun, with several couples all bringing their own dinner and cooking it on hot coals. I asked my good Facebook fans what kind of healthy tin foil dinners they liked, and got so many great replies. Check out the ideas here
Having a tin foil dinner party is a great idea for family parties, regular dinner, or date nights. We ended up bringing some Tilapia and potatoes in our foil. I had to take the picture secretly with my phone so I wouldn't embarrass my husband. So, it's not that great of a photo.
The host heated up coals, and then put the hot, white coals on cookie sheets. Then we put our tin foil dinners right on the cookie sheets. Then we voted on who had the best, most interesting dinner! We didn't get ANY votes. (But it was still yummy!). The host also put a dutch oven full of peach cobbler in the fire pit for dessert.
I've had Crock Pot's on my mind! Normally, I try not to get swept up into internet drama, but there are certain stories I just can't stop watching unfold! Such is the case with the 'sudden fame' of the Crock Pot Girls on Facebook. Quick re-cap.. some "girls" started a slow cooker Facebook group to share recipes, and within a few short weeks, they have 1.1 million Facebook Fans (and constantly growing). I have my theories on the quick and suspicious rise to fame, but I've already voiced my opinion in other places and I'm wasting way too much of my life talking about it.
