And now, back to our regularly scheduled blogging!
Sorry I’ve been MIA for the past few weeks; however, it is travel season for work so I’ve been gone a lot. But in the few days that I actually have been home and cooking, I’ve been documenting as much as I could so I’d have stuff to blog about! So, I should be back to blogging regularly since I have enough photos and recipes for while I’m on the road.
A few weeks ago, we had our dear friends, Jayla, over for dinner and a movie. I wanted something easy to make and when I think “easy,” I think “Crockpot.” Well, it just so happens that I’d seen a recipe on one of the enjoyable blogs that I read, Iowa Girl Eats, and I thought it’d be perfect. BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches.
This recipe was great and I was so happy with how it turned out! Not only was it crazy simple, but it was super delicious. All I did was cut up a pork roast, throw it in the Crockpot with a bit of seasoning mix, balsamic vinegar and water, set the timer for all day (7:30am – 5:30pm) and voila! A delicious meal was ready. Once I got home from work, I shredded the pork (which was insanely easy, since it was so tender), added some BBQ sauce and let it sit for a bit, until our guests arrived. Delish! Since this cooked while I was at work, it gave me plenty of time once I got home to make my side dishes. Awesome. I highly recommend this meal. It was easy, fast and very tasty!
