So unfortunately nothing too exciting to discuss today, other than the fact that I’ve been feeling a little under the weather and I was really excited about my lunch today!

So we’ll skip the part about how I’m always, ALWAYS sick, and go straight to the good stuff:

Mm-mmm! That’s, corn, green beans (canned, I know, but I was rushed throwing it together this morning) and the result of my very first attempt at making pulled pork! Smothered in muy delicioso Bone-Suckin’ BBQ sauce.

Turns out it’s really easy to make pulled pork. I tossed half a raw pork tenderloin we ended up not using in an earlier night’s dinner into the ol’ crockpot with a chopped onion, salt, pepper, and a whole lotta beef stock (low-sodium, of course!) Then I just let it do it’s thing on High for about 3 hours, turning it to low when I realized we weren’t going to be eating it that night. Checked on it until I could pull apart the meat with no effort, then shredded it up with 2 forks and voila!

It’s not superduper flavorful on it’s own, but it’s fantastic with the BBQ sauce (doesn’t compete with it!) and I’m sure if I had seasoned up the meat or onions just a smidge more it would be mighty tasty on it’s own. Anyway, I’m chalking it up to success!

And that’s my exciting news for today, y’all (can you feel the Southern comfort going on in mah bellah?) 🙂
