Weekend in a Nutshell

So we had quite the weekend in the Momma V house. It started off very slow with movies and relaxing on the couch. That quickly turned into laundry and dishes and picking up after my little Tornado (better known as William). And all of this was just on Saturday.

On Sunday, we watched a lot of fooball. I was happy to see that the Patriots lost to the Broncos. Nothing better then picking on my husband when his football team fails! But, he is the first to say something when the Colts or the Giants aren't playing the way they should. I guess I did not have to hear all that much from him this weekend as both of my teams went 5-0!

After the game, we went to the park. William LOVES the parks here. It was a beautiful Sunny (but when is it not sunny in AZ) day. I think it was in the mid 80's. Everyone had a blast.
After the park was done, we went to BRU and got Will a few new things. He had a gift card from his birthday and we figured why not. Then when we got home, we had the most amazing dinner. I had put a pork loin in the crockpot in the morning with some BBQ stuff. Pulled Pork Sandwiches with Roasted Red Ranch Potatoes... WOW!!! If that isnt orgasmic, then I dont know what is...
Here is the recipe..
3 pounds boneless pork shoulder roast, well trimmed
1 package McCormick® Slow Cookers BBQ Pulled Pork Seasoning
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/3 cup cider vinegar

1. Place pork in slow cooker. Mix Seasoning, ketchup, brown sugar and vinegar until blended. Pour over pork. Cover.

2. Cook 8 hours on LOW or 4 hours on HIGH. Remove pork from slow cooker.

3. Shred pork, using 2 forks. Return pork to slow cooker. Mix and heat with sauce before serving. Serve on sandwich rolls, if desired.

Test Kitchen Tip: Use 3 pounds boneless pork loin roast in place of the pork shoulder roast.

Slow Cooker Tip: For best results, do not remove cover during cooking.
And for the roasted potatos.... SIMPLE
1 package of hidden valley Ranch
1/4th cup Veg. Oil
2lbs small red potatos - quartered

Shake Well, bake at 450 for 35 minutes..
Tonights dinner...... Stuffed Shells! I'll try to take some pictures in the assembly process! They are fantastic and delish!
