    Breezy- Yes, you could certainly add some rice into the crockpot. The stew was not very “liqudy” so you’d have to add some water.

    Bread and muffins on the side. I did sop up some juices with the bread.

    I would love to check out Suzie’s blog for more ideas, but the link you put up gets a “this blog has been removed” message from blogspot. Do you have a different address for her?

    Is the Pork a part of this meal to go into the crock pot as part of the stew or is it only for your boys to eat on the side?
