We officially closed on our new house on Friday. Such a relief! We’ve actually been renting our own house for the past two weeks but now it’s officially ours. As are the mountain of boxes, bubble wrap and packing paper strewn about every available inch of floor. I’ve been living each day on repeat. Wake up, get everyone breakfast, unpack, run some type of errand, lunch, blog work, unpack, dinner, family time, blog work, go to bed to start everything over the next day. No complaints, I just feel like I need a few more hours each day to work on the unpacking portion of my day.
Focusing on unpacking means that my thoughts are absolutely not centered on making dinner for everyone. Making dinner takes away from unpacking minutes, you know. So instead of choosing whether I’m feeding more family or putting all of our worldly possessions away, I’ve taken matters into my own hands by putting my slow cooker to work for me. While I’m getting everyone breakfast, I simply toss dinner into the slow cooker and then when the clock strikes 5 o’clock-ish, dinner is close to being ready. Winning.
SIDE NOTE: If you’re looking for an amazing slow cooker, I can’t recommend the one I chatted about in this recipe enough. I mean, the fact that it’s non-stick and is a breeze to clean is amazing in and of itself, but it also will brown, simmer and steam as well. I have three slow cookers and this is the only one that has earned residency in my small kitchen’s limited cabinet real estate.
My Slow Cooker Cherry Cola Pulled Pork is one of my recent dinner favorites that involves little effort on my part yet has my mouth salivating all day as it’s aroma wafts from the kitchen. This four ingredient dinner takes less than 10 minutes to prepare which guarantees you have no excuse to not add it to your dinner menu, stat. A pork shoulder roast, cherry cola and brown sugar simmer away all day to create a sticky sweet sandwich filling that’s then spiked with your favorite barbecue sauce. I love to add potato ships – crunch! – and a coleslaw mix – go veggies! – to my sandwich for a quick and easy dinner.
