Another Christmas has come and gone. And on the day after Christmas, I am sure the last thing you are thinking about is slaving away in the kitchen. So I have just the recipe for you. Slow Cooker Pineapple Pork Ribs. These are so easy to make and taste so good! The meat literally falls off the bone with these ribs. It was actually really hard for me to take photos of them for this very reason. I had to be very careful with these babies.
What did you get for Christmas? Anything special? I actually didn’t ask for anything this Christmas other than things for the house. So my presents included things like tool kits, sheets, pillows, kitchen gadgets, towels, shower rods and step ladders. Yep very exciting things my friends. However, I would much rather receive those things as gifts than have to buy them myself.
I did receive a couple exciting things though: a new camera lens (eek!) and dehydrator! I got this 24-70 Tamron lens, which I had had on my wishlist for ages. I have heard amazing things about this lens so I can’t wait to start playing with it. Because if there is one thing I want to keep working on is my photography skills. I think my next upgrade will be a new camera. Right now I am using the Nikon D3200, which has been great, but I think it might be time to step it up one more notch. I am thinking of investing in the Nikon D7200 . But I am open to suggestions. So all you photography buffs out there pipe up! What would you suggest I upgrade to?
Do you have any boxing day plans? Are you hitting the malls for some great deals? Or hibernating at home, avoiding the crowds at all costs? Now I know I have a lot of American readers here, so for those of you that don’t know, Boxing day, or December 26, is the equivalent of your Black Friday for us Canadians. Think crazy good deals and sales. I didn’t realize this wasn’t common knowledge until recently. So there you go, maybe I taught you something new today?
But whatever your plans are today, if you don’t have dinner plans yet, you might want to consider adding these Slow Cooker Pineapple Pork Ribs to your menu. Not only do these taste amazing but they are so, so easy to make. Simply throw everything in your slow cooker and leave it alone for the day. And ta da – fall of the bone tender ribs for you to enjoy! Just like that. Plus these ribs are compatible for a gluten free, Paleo, Low FODMAP, GAPS, SCD and Whole 30 diet. Yes friends, almost everyone will be able to enjoy these.
Or maybe you are planning on starting a Whole 30 as part of your new years resolution? Or just simply planning to eat better in the new year? Why not add these ribs to your meal planning? I promise you and your family will not be disappointed. Because who doesn’t love ribs? Seriously who? And it’s like I always say, eating healthy shouldn’t be complicated or difficult.
