Did you know you can help your kids’ schools with what’s in your pantry and products you use every day? Recently, I learned about Campbell’s Labels for Education, and when I checked the website, I found all 3 of my kids’ schools were signed up.
All I have to do is just snip off the UPC labels for so many things I regularly purchase or already had at home, send them to school, and let the points add up so our schools could get things they needed. You can even track your school’s progress and see their wishlist online!
One thing I purchase all the time is Campbell’s Soup. My kids love it, but I also love to cook with it. I recently discovered Campbell’s Kitchen. It’s full of recipes to use Campbell’s Soup, and I had to try one with my own little twist. After finding the perfect recipe, I headed to the Walmart to grab all my ingredients.
I made the Slow Cooker Melt-in-Your Mouth Short Ribs and changed it up a bit. You will not be disappointed in this one! It melts in your mouth like butter.
In this recipe, you are supposed to pour in a dark beer or ale. I used Guiness. It gave it a strong flavor and combined with the brown sugar it was very tasty. For my version, I added carrots and left out the thyme and then ladled it out over steaming baked potatoes.
By serving it over baked potatoes, I’ve turned these Slow Cooker Short Ribs into an all-in-one type of meal. My husband and son devoured it! I loved how tender the meat was, and it was so good mixed with the baked potatoes.
How do you make your baked potatoes? I learned a trick from my mom, who learned it from my sister-n-law, and I use it all the time for perfect baked potatoes. After I wash the potatoes, I stab them a few times with a fork, then wrap them individually in wax paper. It keeps them moist and delicious. Then, I heat them in the microwave. One potato usually takes about 5 minutes and it’s done.
I love that you can quickly throw this together in the morning and have it all ready for dinner when you get home. All you have to do is make the potatoes. Then, you’re ready to sit down to a delicious hearty meal.
