I love anything that is slow cooked. I love that I can get our meal going in the morning, get done what I need to get done during the day and our dinner is being perfectly prepared. I just don’t think a cook can have too many recipes that don’t keep them tied to the stove or oven. I am here to add one more to your recipe box….Spicy Pulled Pork. It has a kick, a good kick.
Last week was a challenge, a big challenge. Sir Streusel was recovering from his knee surgery and a pulled back muscle. Yours truly had a bacterial infection that required 12 pills a day for 10 days. Each pill was a combination of many antibiotics. Needless to say, I was on a ”MEGADOSE”! I became so sick from those dang pills. I don’t remember feeling that badly for years. As my sweet Mama said, “If Jody is in bed, she is sick.” The good news is Sir Streusel is up and walking, slowly, and I have completed the MEGADOSE!
I am not exaggerating when I say that this is what we felt like…….walking zombies!
Lately, I have been having a tropical vibe. We live on a gorgeous beach with turquoise water, sugar white sand and gentle breeze. Every weekend as I am floating in my chair trying to beat the heat, I envision myself as a beautiful hula dancer.
But something deep down inside me tells me that this is what people would really see if I broke out into my hula dance…….
But really, who would you rather spend some tropical time with? The gorgeous, serene beauty or the wild woman just not having a care in the world and dancing her heart out?! Yea, I thought so, I would be so much fun as a hula girl.
Today I have another Crock-pot, or Slow Cooker, recipe for you. Every year, Sir Streusel and I rent a lake house in the Georgia Mountains and do nothing, seriously, nothing. Eric fishes from sun up until sun down. We don’t even go out to eat except for one night. I take the Crock-pot and of course my cast iron skillet and do easy meals for us. It is all about slowing down, resting and refreshing. Pulled Barbecue Chicken Sandwiches is on the menu every year.
