I figured that warranted a blog entry.
Tonight's dinner was pretty easy. BBQ pulled pork sandwhiches and coleslaw.
It starts around noon. I put a 3lb. boneless pork shoulder into the crockpot. Using a seasoning packet for crockpot BBQ Pork, I followed the directions for the sauce and poured it over the pork. Cover and cook on high for at least 4 hours. Later when it was done, I used two forks to pull apart the meat.

The coleslaw is an imitation of KFC's coleslaw, and my husband's favorite. I used bagged slaw and just made the sauce for it. Here's the recipe:
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup buttermilk*
2 1/2 TBS lemon juice
1 1/2 TBS white vinegar
1/2 cup mayonnaise (or miracle whip)
*I don't usually have buttermilk on hand so I increase the milk to 1/2 cup and just pour the lemon juice into the milk and let it thicken for a few minutes. Then I add it to the rest of the ingredients.
Whisk all the ingredients together and pour over slaw. Toss and then refrigerate 2+ hours.
Now, I have never lived in the South, but I do watch The Food Network... hmmm strange sentence. What I mean is I have watched OTHERS from the South make BBQ pulled pork, and I have noticed a common occurrence; the putting of the coleslaw ON the pork IN the sandwich. YUM! I'm the only one in my family who enjoys this combination of creamy-cold and spicy-sweet, however, I highly recommend it!
Open a can of baked beans or a jar of applesauce and you have a very tasty and easy meal. :)
