ODDS AND ENDS AND PULLED PORK FOR TWO

 I found my Easter Bunny Welcome sign so it's now enjoying the balcony.  Can't hang things on our front door, so it's welcoming me and my dearest!  HaHa
 Made an apple crisp in my new blue square casserole.
 It's pretty sad when your dog's wardrobe is bigger than yours.  Just kidding Molly!
 "Pulled Pork" for Two!  I get a small pork roast at Trader Joe's.  
Approximately 8" long.  Cut into smaller pieces, season and brown in olive oil.
 I know a lot of recipes put the raw meat directly into the crock pot.  But I find that the searing seals in the juices and the meat is so tender and juicy.  (I don't mind the extra step)
 This is my favorite BBQ sauce for pulled pork.  I think I could just drink it!!!
 I bought this small crock pot which is perfect when cooking for two.  I put BBQ sauce in the bottom and more on the top of the meat and let it cook for several hours until it falls apart.
It takes up very little room on the counter.  Years ago a friend was remodeling her kitchen and gave me a left over large tile.  I like sitting the crock pot on that rather than on the counter top.

Well, that what I'm up to today.  Got a couple loads of laundry done, and my dearest vacuumed.  I have started another bag for good will because for some reason...things keep multiplying, and it's time to DE-CLUTTER again!!!!

    1. That's the nice thing about pulled pork, you can make it for two, or two dozen. I made a small cold slaw and we enjoyed out dinner very much.
      Thanks for the visit.

  4. Pulled pork looks so tasty and a beautiful apple crisp. Yum!
    I am thinking of getting an Instant Pot. Been waffling for a while but I belong to two FB IP sites so I may take the plunge... eventually!
    Molly is quite the fashion plate!

  5. Wanda, I have a piece of old counter that I set my crock pot on...I do not like it directly on the counter it can get warm on bottom. Apple crisp is always good...better with a scoop of ice cream. LOL. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

    1. Something to sit the crock pot on is smart. When I was working years ago in property management. The most damage done in the rentals was someone sitting a hot pan or skillet on the counter..Yikes..many burn spots came out of their Security Deposit..haha. We did have a scoop of ice cream on that apple crisp. Hugs.

  6. Wonderful busy day. The apple crisp looks delicious. We don't eat much pork, but we have been doing Hello Fresh lately and almost every week there is a meal involving pork. Last week they had pork tenderloin which was seared and then roasted in the oven. It was excellent and your bbq pork looks very good. I may have to buy a tenderloin and try that. Love your little bunny.

    1. We don't eat much pork either. But the small pork roast is nice once in a while. Sometimes I slice it down the middle and stuff it with dried prunes and apples and bake in the oven with carrots and potatoes.

  7. Ummm, pulled pork sandwiches sound divine. I think you are the Crock Pot Queen too.
    Its poured all night and everything is getting sloppy around our house. Glad for the rain and the snow in the mountains though. We need it so badly. Got to get the bills done today...Mexico is coming so fast. Sunday at 4 AM...oh my...I am glad I have a week of Daylight Savings time to get my head together though.
    Love you two and will keep you in the loop.

    1. Sue, you are just too kind. Excuse me while I straighten my crown...hahaha. I know you back yard likes to flood when you get a lot of rain. We do need it. I was wondering when you leave for Mexico. I will keep you in my prayers, and you keep us posted. We have a group right now in Texas with 8 Days of Hope. Love and Hugs.

  8. We always sear the meat before cooking, and pork in the crockpot is fantastic.

    1. Searing meat is something I watch my mom do as long as I can remember. She did it with a large roast too, and it was always so juicy.

  9. HI Wanda...
    I bought a Corned Beef Brisket today, and I plan on using my slo-cooker on Saturday! All the veggies go in with it...so easy...and hopefully delish!
