Barbecued Pork

So, this happened last night…

It was crazy. And it seems the roof has developed a leak. Great. At least we are just renters. … someone else has to pay for that. But, not good. Also, one of my dogs is a scaredy-cat when it comes to thunder. So, have you ever had a 60-pound lab sit on your lap? Yeah. Good times.

This also happened last night…



Yep. And it was AWESOME! I finally made it to the Fresh Market yesterday – what, it’s only been open since December! – and, as I was browsing the awesomeness that is that store, I stumbled across this shelf of chocolate. Chocolate! All kinds! So many flavors! And, yes, I picked the beef jerky. What? You wouldn’t be curious? Have you ever tried chocolate covered bacon? No?! Well, I demand that you try it immediately and then you will understand why I gravitated to the jerky. It just BEGGED to be tried. It’s not chocolate covered beef jerky. That might actually be weird and very difficult to eat. This is beef jerky chopped up super tiny and covered in chocolate. Oh sweet spicy chocolaty goodness. Yespleaseandthankyou! Om. Nom. Nom. I am definitely going back and it is entirely possible that I will purchase another bar. Oh yes, it is very possible. Because… this happened yesterday, too:


Cue the angels, it’s right next door to the Fresh Market!!!!

This ALSO happened last night. I threw some things into the crockpot yesterday morning and came home to discover some seriously delicious meat. Meat is good. You can serve this as I did on a bun (hey. don’t judge me. I like bread.) or you can throw it into a tortilla or you can put it into a bowl and just eat it with a fork. Your call. You won’t be disappointed.
