Tasty Thursday

I just have to share with you a recipe I made this week for dinner.  I made a Crock Pot Kalua Pork on Tuesday and it was amazing.  The kids & hubby just devoured it.  Pinterest is really making my meal planning life easy and tasty.  I took it from and did not adapt it at all.  It is a recipe with only three ingredients but it does need to cook in the Crock Pot for 16 hours so I was up at 2:30am to get it started.  It was so worth it.  I served it with steamed white rice and steamed broccoli.  No complaints were heard from the dinner table.
