Baby, it’s cold outside–what’s for dinner?

60 Degrees in South Florida –brr!

I realize that most of the country has real cold weather, but this is chilly for us Floridians–and I love it. I have the windows all open and I turned the air conditioner off. A hot cup of coffee on the balcony would be wonderful, but I recently had dental work so I had to settle for warmish. It is the perfect Crock Pot kind of day.

We have family coming over for dinner, so I’m making pork roast. The Crock Pot is amazing for fixing and forgetting, which works since I am awesome at forgetting lol. There are so many stories going on in my mind that it is easy for me to forget what I was just doing, like, a minute ago.

This is a flavorful meal, and so simple–a pork roast, a small jar of minced garlic, chicken broth, onion, carrot, potato, and after a few hours, I add a bag of fresh green beans and some lime. When it’s done, you can shred the pork and serve on top of the veggies. Christopher likes to slice his and make sandwiches. This is best accompanied with French bread and real butter.

With leftovers, you can create shredded pork tacos or add to rice and black beans. Yum! What are you having for dinner?

Happy Sunday everyone, love, Traci

  1. After buying my electric pressure cooker, my crock pot took a back seat. But now I find I’m back using my slow cooker again. We’ve had some 40’s to 60’s days of late, and I’m enjoying them too here in Houston.

  2. Traci – this comment was left for me on Triberr but it really belongs to you as the author of this post.
    Hello Mimi, Happy New Year! That recipe looks yummy. I see that you’re in Florida, so I want to invite you to our upcoming Master Class in Indie Writing.
    Let me know if you decide to go. And I’m going to write down this recipe for sure xo
