So Friday night, is waffle night, no waffling on dinner, just waffles for dinner. I'll even throw in some bacon for those who like it.
Saturday...the pork shoulder should be defrosted.
That sucker is getting patted down, coated with a sheen of cooking oil, rubbed with brown sugar, kosher salt, black and white pepper, paprika and put in a slow cooker. Then I'm adding two cans of beer and letting it sit all day.
Saturday evening, when we've recovered from the field hockey practice, the cross country meet and before we tackle the Sunday obligations of sitting to sell tickets for the Saint Martin's 90th, mass for all ten of us, and the cross country meet for the Rita, Regina, John and Faith (at noon in Laurel), we will sit down to pulled pork sandwiches, tomato salad or Caesar --their pick, carrots, and french fries.
I shred the pork in a new pan, and take 2 cups of the drippings and add them to a bottle of BBQ sauce. (Whatever kind you like). Stir well while heating. Then slosh the meat and make into sandwiches. Serve each child who likes it, and give them a roll of paper towels for clean up. Any child who doesn't like it, hand a bowl of cheerios and pray for their souls.
Tuesday: Soup's on! I love making soup in the slow cooker and even better, the kids eat it.
What do you need? TIME....in the morning, before ten o'clock...
A slow cooker.
A piece of stew meat or roast. (I cut it up).
box of chicken stock
2) chop up all the vegetables. Add to slow cooker.
Cook all day, serve with a salad and french bread. They eat it. And for the wimps, I make a pot of pasta and pour it over it and call it sauce.
I made a nice meal yesterday...what do you mean you want me to do it again today? They don't have school today so I'm going to make something that makes my life easy. Meatloaf!
Again, half the kids like it, half don't.
Now I make my meatloaf with ketchup as a topper, specifically, the best we ever got was Sir Kensington Ketchup, which is only found in New York. I don't know how we got it the one time we got it, but I've been on the hunt ever since for it, and have had to substitute other ketchups, The kids who like the meatloaf, have complained that they miss Sir Kensington. So I've ordered some....
Chicken...it's what's for dinner. But the kids are getting tired of fiejtas. (The horror).
