Ohh, what a weekend. Where should I begin? How about with food??
Friday night when my boyfriend finalllllly arrived we sat down and made pulled pork sandwiches. I have 2 things to say about this. 1.) This is the easiest recipe ever. 2.) Have you ever had bone suckin sauce? You must go buy this RIGHT NOW.
Obsessed. This was my first time making pulled pork even though I order it every time I eat out if it’s on the menu. Who knew it was so easy to make?
- 1 sliced onion
- 3 lbs pork shoulder
- 1 can of vegetable broth
Place it all in the crock pot on Low for 9 hours. Remove pork and shred (remove fat). Place back in the crock pot. Serve on Whole Wheat Buns. Clearly I like BBQ sauce,so my sandwich is drenched in it… But whatever you choose to do with yours, PLEASE use the bone suckin sauce. You won’t regret it.
Since I made 3 pounds there were plenty of leftovers… We could’ve easily made these sandwiches again. But I have a.d.d. and a new pan
so it must be put to good use. Cuban panini’s sounded like a good plan to me
and they were. Whole wheat bread, honey mustard, leftover pulled pork, deli turkey, Muenster cheese and of course pickles! Sorry about the bad picture :/
Saturday was rainy so we dyed some easter eggs in the morning.
Don’t mind the clorox bottle… My boyfriend’s a little messy.
The sun magically appeared and we headed to Camden Yards to try to scalp tickets to the Baltimore vs Yankees game. My boyfriend is a HUGE baseball (yankees) fan so being the great girlfriend I am
I agreed to give up my dreams of trying out the new Vegan restaurant to have blue moons and hot dogs.
Best part about it? We got FREE tickets 20 rows behind home plate!
Worst part about it?? My car was towed…To the tune of almost $400!!!!! Baltimore city is THE worst.
That left us a good 4 hours of sleep before Church the next day.. Somehow we managed to look presentable.
It turned out to be a BEAUTIFUL day so after taking a million pictures outside we headed to my mom’s for Easter linner.
The Easter Bunny had dropped off a basket for me – Sprinkles cupcake mix (dark chocolate), pretty cupcake liners, sugar-free peeps, jelly beans, lindt chocolates, a notepad, hand made note cards and of course REESE’S EGGS! I politely asked the Easter Bunny to go easy on the Eggs this year because I knew I would eat all of them. So there were 2… I approved.
NOW, for the food. We easily ate ourselves into a food coma… But, that was the plan.
Honey Baked Ham
Spinach Salad w/ feta, dried cranberries & sunflower seeds
Grilled Corn salad with cheese, tomatoes and avocados
Homemade mac & cheese
Grandma's Mashed Potatoes
Unpictured: Turkey, Sweet Potatoes, and rolls.
My plate went like this:
My boyfriend and I were in charge of dessert and I’d like to think we succeeded.
Strawberries & Cream Cake
Crumb Cake from Carlos Bakery in Hoboken
I had to try everything
It really was an AMAZING weekend (minus the car being towed) with surprisingly beautiful weather. I went to bed at 745 pm to catch up on sleep from the night before in hopes of feeling normal today. It didn’t work. BUT, I am hoping to be back on track by tomorrow. I have a little confession…
I’ve been eating horribly, not going to the gym and I’m really starting to feel gross. So, tomorrow I need to get back on track… I need to get to the gym, I need to pack healthy food and I need to get out of this funk!! Give me some motivation
Let’s make this week a good one!!
Questions: What do you do for motivation? Send me some!! What’s your favorite memory from the weekend?
