Guess WHAT? Isla was in bed by 7:30 tonight and Jack by 8:00. Wahooo… about to pour myself a glass of wine. Seriously though, we’ve been majorly slacking on bedtimes lately and both kids have been a mess. Jack is impossible to wake up in the mornings and Isla has been throwing tantrum after tantrum. Late afternoons are not pretty around here.
I actually made tonight’s dinner yesterday and then ended up scrapping it to go eat Tex-Mex with my parents. I found this packet of slow cooker apple bourbon sauce at Target and decided to give it a try:
Yesterday morning I layered a sliced onion in the bottom of the crock pot, then added a 3lb pork butt (hehe) and the sauce. Cooked on low for 8 hours, then removed the pork, shredded the meat and added it back to the crock pot.
I bought slider buns for pulled pork sliders, but I ended up making a BBQ pork quesadilla instead. Just mixed the meat with a little Stubb’s and sandwiched it between 2 low-carb tortillas with some shredded cheddar:
I honestly wasn’t a huge fan of the Campbell’s sauce. It’s a good concept but once the pork cooks down and releases all of its juice (ok, fat), the sauce ends up really watered down. The Stubb’s saved the day though.
OK off to take advantage of this quiet house! We have a busy day tomorrow- meet the teacher for Isla and parent orientation for me.
