I've been in a tizzy trying to clean out my freezer. My freezer was in such bad shape: things thrown in willy-nilly, half packages of pie crusts and frozen vegetables, freezer-burned items. A much needed deep-clean was in store for me. I had six pork chops in there of various varieties. A couple of bone-in… Continue reading Al Pastor Pork Chops
Savory bone-in chops slow cooked to perfection with a tangy tomato & balsamic vinegar sauce. Best served with noodles or potatoes and with a heap of the tomatoes!

That was the first time I had ever gotten a professional, hour-long massage and it was incredible.… Continue reading BBQ Pulled Pork Shepherd’s Pie
When my station brings food to a work party, we go all out. Case in point: Our Super Bowl work party. I brought cheeseburger party sliders and mini bagel breakfast sandwiches (we do work the early, early morning shift, you know). Another coworker brought crockpot queso, brown-sugar bacon wrapped lil' smokies, homemade cookies, pigs in… Continue reading Green Chili Pork Frito Pie
