It's just hot!
But here in Idaho, that changes constantly. One day last week it was scorching and the next I wanted to turn on the heater, but resisted. It kinda gets on my last nerve. I love when it rains, though. It helps our grass look so pretty and the garden veggies just love it, and our wheat crops are happy. I just would like a perfect medium with a good rain once a week.
Is that too much to ask for?
Today I have one of those slow cooker recipes that is great for a picnic potluck as well as around the family dinner table.
1 boneless pork shoulder or butt roast (3-4 lbs.)
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. ground black pepper
1/2 tsp. ground red pepper
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
1 (18 oz.) bottle of your favorite BBQ Sauce
1/2 c. brown sugar (I left this out because Lance doesn't like sweet meat.)
How You Do It
Combine salt and spices in a small bowl. Rub over the roast. Place onion in the slow cooker; add pork. Combine BBQ sauce and brown sugar in a medium bowl; pour over the meat. Cover and cook on low 8-10 hours. Transfer to a cutting board and trim any fat off. Using 2 forks, pull pork into shreds. Put back in the slow cooker and stir into the sauce. Serve on buns.
