Hello again; sorry I haven’t written in a while. Not too much “new” in my life, so I’ve been a little short on motivation to write. No way to treat a blog, right? Ok, so here’s a bit of a make up post.
Not a great deal on the personal front, except….I did enjoy a “quasi-date” last Saturday, put together by some mutual friends. Yes, I will admit to some nervousness prior, but it ended up being a very nice, fun evening of “adult socializing” as my quasi-date put it. If nothing else, it was good to get out and feel like I was interacting on a somewhat normal basis. And, for an evening at least, I didn’t feel like I was alone. I’m grateful it was arranged.
Ok, a couple of things to discuss on the food front. In my last food reference, I was bragging about the ham/sausage/peas/garlic alfredo penne I had made. That “success” did encourage me to try again, so, I pulled out the slow cooker and made a really sweet pulled pork, which I served on a bagel (you didn’t think I was going to forget my namesake bagels, did you?) and, with not much else in my fridge, put some yummy applesauce on the plate with it. When I say really sweet, I mean it both ways. I made it using Jack Daniels BBQ sauce, which is both tangy and sweet (a REALLY good sauce) and I added some honey as well. Everything else was pretty much standard pulled pork, but the BBQ sauce and honey made the dish awesome.
That simple but tasty dish was so good, I tried it again a few nights later, this time with chicken. Same recipe otherwise. Oh, and this time served on King’s Hawaiian rolls. THAT is the definition of sweet on sweet. Both pictures follow. Yum Yum. Talk soon.
