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 skinnytaste.com 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.

3 lb pork shoulder blade roast, lean, all fat removed

Place pork in the crock pot and stab it all over with the tip of a knife. Rub sea salt all over pork. Drizzle the liquid smoke all over and set crock pot to low; cook about 16 hours.
Remove from crock pot and place on a large platter. Remove any fat you may have missed and shred pork with two forks. Discard liquid reserving a little as needed to keep pork moist.
