TGITW=Thank Goodness It’s The Weekend

Afternoon everyone! Hope you’re hqving a wonderful day so far. I’m so glad the weekend is here! This has been a crazy week, but at least it ended on a high note. I’ve been toying with the idea of designing t-shirts, mugs, and aprons for a while now. I love designing, something I’ve done since I was a kid with my Barbie Designer Stencil Kit…anyone remember those? If not I have just seriously aged myself BIG TIME! 😉 

I’ve used my love for designing as a Promo Rep for a local author designing images for her instagram account and blog to help promote her indie books, not to mention for my own instagram account and blog. So this week I went looking for a credible site that would allow me to upload my designs to be used on a wide range of products. Boy did I hit a jackpot that is going to be a wonderful jumping off place for Night Owl Kitchen Blog and ~finally~ I can start sharing my other passion with you all! I’ve got some planning to do, an online store front to create, and soon I hope to have a link for you all to click to visit. I’m beyond giddy at the moment! 😁

Gonna come down from cloud 9 and share a recipe with you all. I promise I haven’t forgotten that I need to get these other recipes up. If you love bratwurst then you will enjoy this easy low carb dish! You can prep the brats by lightly grilling them or pan searing them, it will add an extra layer of to the dish. Of course you don’t to do that if you prefer not to. 


What you’ll need: 

2-3 pounds Bratwursts, frozen

1 large onion, sliced

Bell pepper mix, green, yellow, orange, and red(omit any that you don’t like), sliced

1 cup chicken broth

1 tblsp Grill Seasoning of your choice

Directions:

In a 4-6 qt crock pot, the larger being size being appropriate if using 3pounds of meat, add everything into the crock pot, and cook on low for 4-6 hours. Serve with a brown spicy mustard, fried cabbage, and/or side salad. 

It’s that easy! Another way to prep the bratwursts is to preslice them. Par frozen meat is easier to cut, so keep that in mind. This can help cut down the cooking time, just make sure to rough chop your vegetables so everything is in unison and easy to eat. Of course, if you can handle bread these are also great on buns! Make according to the recipe above and serve on hot steamed buns with your favorite condiments and toppings.

I realize that if you’re not eating meals high in fat that those numbers are going to throw you for a loop. But to actually live a successful low carb life you have to have the fat, it helps keep you full between meals, keeps you from senseless snacking, and will actually help you to burn the existing fat on your body! Not popular thinking I know, but I am living it and it’s working great for me! 

Hope this recipe is a blessing those who try it, have a great weekend everyone!
