First things first.....Western Dressing is a red version of French dressing and to me it is sweeter and more tomatoey than french. I prefer it to French dressing personally. Just Too Good Dressings use to have Western Dressing and the brand I've used is Western Dressing The Original. Hope that helps.
So what is everyone up to today? I'm crockpotting today LOL I think that might be a new word
I like to cook smoked turkey legs ahead of time, I use them for seasoning in beans, greens etc, so I can chill them and skim off any collected fat. So they are bubbling up a storm in the crockpot and tomorrow I will freeze the meat and broth in containers so I'm ready to have seasoning.
Yesterday my shopper got me some fresh strawberries. Ours are starting to come in and they are so sweet this year. At the veggie market she also got me some yellow squash, zucchini, sweet potatoes, cabbage, apples and oranges. I truly love veggies!!!
Which makes me think...have you tried the new microwave steaming bags? I LOVE them! So easy to use and no cleaning the big steamer. I made omelets in them too. Super easy and no clean up. Now that's my kind of kitchen find!
Another new to me product I'm just now trying is the Splenda brown Sugar. So good but this one has sugar in it, I can't remember off hand but it is something like 1/2 calories or something, I'm not sure how it would work for diabetics.
I have a question for ya'll. Have you ever used the already shredded slaw mix and what is your opinion of it? I use it in soups and casseroles but when I use it for slaw the cabbage seems dry, the cabbage tastes dry no matter how I dress it. Do you have that problem?
I hope everyone is feeling better! It is so good to hear from ya'll I sure missed everyone!
