Just in the last year I became a Christian. This is a whole new world to me, lots to learn and I am just gobbling it up. Like always my little one, Indigo is a huge influence in my life and I am really enjoying sharing my new faith with her.
Each night we pray. It is so very adorable for my daughter to stop me as I leave her room for the night and remind me that we need to pray.
Our prayers are quite simple, I let her lead.
“Dear God, Bless Daddy, Mommy, Indigo, Grandma, Grandpa, Jake (current boyfriend of hers) Praise Jesus, Amen.”
Well last night she strayed! At the part where she normally says “Praise Jesus” she was mumbling…I repeated the statement and she said :
“NO Mommy, I said praise Cheez it’s! – not Jesus!”
Oh my little heathen.
Ingredients for Pulled Pork
Delightfully borrowed from Pioneer Woman
• 1 whole Large Onion
• 1 whole Pork Shoulder/Butt - 5 To 7 Pounds
• Salt And Freshly Ground Black Pepper
• 1 can (11 Ounce) Chipotle Peppers In Adobo Sauce
• 24 ounces of Dr. Pepper
• 2 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
Directions for Pulled Pork
Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
Peel the onion and cut it into wedges. Lay them in the bottom of a large dutch oven.
Generously salt and pepper the pork roast, then set it on top of the onions in the pan.
Pour the can of chipotle peppers over the pork (include the sauce.) Pour all of the Dr Pepper. Add brown sugar to the juice and stir in.
Place lid tightly on pot, then set pot in the oven. Cook for at least six hours, turning roast two or three times during the cooking process. Check meat after six hours; it should be absolutely falling apart (use two forks to test.) If it’s not falling apart, return to the oven for another hour.
Remove meat from pot and place on a cutting board or other work surface. Use two forks to shred meat, pour another ½ cup of cooking liquid over the pork.
Now let’s add some more spice!
Ingredients for the Cilantro/Jalapeno Pesto
1 ½ cup Cilantro
½ Jalapeno, chopped
¼ cup blanched almonds
¼ cup Olive Oil
Directions for the Pesto
Place it all in your food processor and blend! Easy Peasy, sinfully good! If you like super heat add the whole jalapeno.
And now the story ends, I served this pulled pork and spicy pesto on Mini Sweet Hawaiian Rolls, the were outrageously good.
Much better than Cheez it’s!
