Slow-Cooker Beer Pulled Pork

Here’s this week’s fast and easy dinner that you can throw all in one pot.

Don’t worry about the beer, it’s totally kiddo-safe. The eight hours of slow cooking pretty much cooks out all the alcohol. And since I’m always looking for different pulled pork variations, this beer version provides a lighter version than the one I made here.

Turkey and Waffles {that’s waffled stuffing!}

Waffled stuffing—you knew I had to go there. I would waffle ice cream if it were possible – hmm, maybe. But today, let’s talk about waffled stuffing turned into Turkey and Waffles—a holiday play on Chicken and Waffles.

I’m all about Thanksgiving food this year. Naomi and I have been testing, prepping and making all kinds of stuff, some classic and some crazy (like this turkey and waffles sandwich). But all good so far, at least to me.

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

When the boys are around and the TV is on, it’s baseball, basketball or Spongebob. And while I am a big fan of all 3 (yes, ALL 3), I need a little more mental stimulation occasionally. Sorry boys. In that rare instance where I have some kid-free time and actually get to sit on the couch by myself or with Naomi to watch TV, I am almost always disappointed with what’s on. So inevitably, I end up putting on a classic movie, like an old western, or a sitcom, such as Seinfeld, my all time favorite show. And both never fail to entertain me. Even when I know the entire script by memory, which annoys the heck out of Naomi.

When it comes to food, I similarly find that sometimes, a return to a classic brings me the same type of joy and contentment. In this instance, it worked with this Slow Cooker Pulled Pork. Yeah, everyone says their pulled pork recipe is the best, but I’m not sure if I’m quite ready or skilled enough to make that claim. But what I can say is that this one is a little bit sweet, a little bit smokey and where it differs from all others lies in the bread. Take it from me, skip the usual sandwich bun and use a sweet sliced bread, grill it with some Parmesan cheese on the outside to give it a slightly salty taste, then finish it off with a dusting of powdered sugar. And that’s what sets this apart from all others.
