Crockpot Pulled Pork

Easiest ever!  Mark shared this “recipe” with me before we got married.

Put pork (boneless is easiest; “ribs”, chops, roast, loin- whatever) in crockpot.  Add some BBQ sauce.  Cook on low or high until pork falls apart. Continue reading

Corn and Sauerkraut, etc.

We had sloppy joes for dinner. I toasted the kaiser rolls in olive oil- so good!

Sloppy Joes, Sauerkraut, Corn, and French Fries

Sloppy Joes, Sauerkraut, Corn, and French Fries

Sean says “I don’t like sloppy joes”. This is slightly different feedback than he’s offered in the past (i.e. I like them on the buns Grandma uses (Kaiser rolls), and I like the taste but not the texture of the vegetable chunks). Grr.
Mark and Brenda loved the sandwiches.

We had corn, frozen from the worst last year’s sweet corn crop. Everyone liked it. Mark could tell a difference by the smell alone. Sean volunteered that the corn was very good.
French fries- we’re almost to the end of the fries we froze last fall. They are so good!
Sauerkraut- well, we need to eat it somehow. Brenda liked her couple of bites. No one else ate any.

Fish and Chips

Mark and Sean loved tonight’s dinner!

Brenda ate 2 bites, which, for fish, is very good.

We had a piece of whitefish left in the freezer from Jake’s Country Meats.  Mark used our own Indian Corn Bread Mix and dried lemon thyme in the breading.  He fried it perfectly.  See how lovely it is?  Anyone who likes fish would love this!

The “chips” are baked french fries, frozen from our Megachip potato crop last year.  They were the best of the french fries we froze last fall.  Nice and crispy with no mushy-bits.  Green beans from the pantry rounded out the meal.

Thumbs up from Mark and Sean.  Brenda just doesn’t like fish.

Philly Cheese Steak and Blue Fries

This dinner was attractive in person- not so much in the photo.

Homemade baked fries- frozen from last year’s blue potato crop.

Broccoli- frozen from last year’s surprise second growth of broccoli.

Philly cheese steaks – with Boar’s Head London Broil, peppers from the freezer (already diced, but we used them anyway), onion, provolone, and toasted hoagie rolls.  Toasting the hoagies before building the sandwiches was new this time- the Pioneer Woman suggested it, a very smart tip!  Next time, Sean would like his without cheese, Brenda and Mark would like to try it with Muenster. 

We all liked this meal.

Slop Sloppy Joes

Adam Sandler sings a song about this meal.  http://youtu.be/vH8jAjtvc10

Sloppy Joes

The cole slaw and french fries (baked) were made with cabbage, onion, and potatoes from our garden.  Sean likes the french fries if we season them only with salt and pepper.  Deal!  He doesn’t touch cole slaw. 

Mark and I liked the slaw.  

We used Kaiser buns for the sloppy joes- because that’s what Grandma uses.  We lightly toasted them.

We made our last batch of applesauce today, and had one quart that wasn’t full- so we enjoyed that with dinner.
