So, it makes me super excited when I can put together a meal that he really enjoys. This week, that happened not once, but TWICE.
Awesome and SUPER EASY Meal #1
Pulled Pork (in the crock pot!) I LOVED how simple this was! I made it for Sunday lunch, it’s lasted for several meals, and we still have pork left over! Chris cut up the onions for me. (Maybe one day I’ll post a pic of how I cut up onions. It involves me wearing my 7 yr old son’s scuba mask. Not highly effective but quite entertaining for all other parties involved.)
Anyway. Hubby was home so he helped. 🙂 Into the crockpot went the first onion, then I added the pork roast, and then poured some Ginger Ale on top. I found the natural cane sugar kind at Trader Joe’s. I finished it off with one more onion and left it to cook overnight. In the morning, I drained off the juice, mixed in bbq sauce, and let it cook for a few more hours. DONE!
I felt like a hero. Chris had a blast turning it into a fun “man dish”. He added blue corn chips, shredded cheese, guac, and cowboy caviar, and then proclaimed it perfect Super Bowl food.
Awesome and slightly more complicated Meal #2
Chicken Marsala. I used Chef Emerile Lagasse’s recipe and, oh my gosh, we thought we were in a restaurant. It was THAT good. It was so totally amazing I can’t wait to get more red wine so I can make it again. I’m going to wait till we move in mid-December though, because I’m trying to purchase as little as possible right now and use what we have! His directions were nice and thorough, and this non-chef didn’t have any trouble following them.
Let me know if you decide to try either of these recipes, and how you like them!
