Sunday Night Dinner

With the playoffs approaching football games have been fun to follow the last couple of weeks (even for me!), so we invited over my family to watch the games and share a relaxing Sunday dinner.  

During a Saturday morning Costco run we invested in a new slow cooker and I couldn’t be happier – here is the journey of its christening ..  

Pulled Pork with Caramelized Onions 

Homemade Sweet Potato Chips 

Bread and Butter Pickles

A couple tips I learned along the way… 1. Make the meat the day before, refrigerate it and skim the fat off of the top (the cut of meat is a little fatty for my taste), 2. Invest in a mandolin – they are a dream for a making a meal like this (evenly cut chips/pickles/etc.), 3. The pickles were really good on the sandwich (a vinegar based slaw would have been great too).
