Ohai blog! I keep forgetting about you, poooor thing. ;(
I know I keep saying this, but here goes another attempt to keep up here. SO.....while I may not be able to keep up with you, I AM still cooking, and even sometimes knitting. But mostly it's cooking, cleaning, working and kid-chasing.
This time of year, especially - when I'm no longer so keen on heating up the oven, I really do love my slow cooker. When we went to bed last night, this was a 3 lb pork roast covered in a cajun rub, a sliced onion, and a 1/4 cup of cider. When we woke up, it was a luscious hunk of BBQ just waiting for the forks and the sauce. Ten minutes work for several meals of enjoyment. I call that a good investment.
For those that are curious, it's Dreamland sauce from the rib shack of the same name in Tuscaloosa, AL. Dreamland's are the ribs that broke me from almost 10 years of vegetarianism. Ain't nothin like 'em nowhere.
Thanks to the power of the internet, I no longer have to go home to get my hands on the sauce. Now I can just order it by the case....and I do.
