Well that was a great title, huh? Yeah, creative juices are really flowin’ tonight!
Does that look gross? Good, that’s what I was going for.
Clearly my photo abilities do not cross over from black and white film photography!
Oh well, you all get to enjoy it anyway 🙂
I call that glorious picture dinner. Pulled pork and sautéed kale.
I love the crock pot. I mean, like, I am in love with it. It is the best invention EVER. Yes, EVER! I use it at least once a week. I make pulled chicken so I can throw it in the fridge and have it for salads during the week, I make pulled pork, and other fun things.
Anyway, pulled pork is super easy! There are tons of recipes out there, this one is very basic. I take a chunk of pork (I don’t know cuts, it is the big hunk of a chunk one) and throw it in the pot. I put sage, rosemary, basil, black pepper, and salt on it and add about 1/4 cup of water. Let it go on low for 6-8 hours. Make sure you check it so it doesn’t get over done and dried out (I did that today :(, so not my best pulled pork ever)!
Then when it is done, pull it out and on a plate use two forks to shred it. Then eat it! 🙂
I love kale now, too. I’m starting to get sick of it because I’ve been eating it a lot. I sauté it up in a pan with olive oil. When it is done I add some sea salt and lots of nutritional yeast.
Nutritional yeast is great! It gets me some extra protein and has lots of B vitamins! It is awesome for anyone, really, not just if you have Lyme. It helps me get my nutrients since I have a tough time absorbing all of them because of the destruction Lyme has caused to my intestinal system.
Plus, it adds some extra cheesy flavor to the kale!
