I love food.

For Valentine's weekend, the boy and I cooked each other food. He made breakfast. An egg sunny side up (he gave me the good one), with pork roll and canadian bacon. Waffles on the side!

It was so good. I almost didn't have room for my pulled pork and homemade coleslaw! Unfortunately, I forgot to take a pic, but I drew one up. I think this somewhat accurately portrays the joy that was the pulled pork sandwich.

The best part of the pulled pork, was how EASY it was. I forgot how friggin awesome a slow cooker is. Here's the recipe:

2 lbs. pork, chopped in large chunks (I used a pork roast I found on sale)
1 can rootbeer
a few squirts of worchestershire sauce

Put all of that in the slow cooker on low and cook for 7 hours.
Drain. Shred the pork with a fork. (heh heh...rhyming is fun)
Add an 18 oz. bottle of BBQ sauce (I used Stubb's Spicy BBQ Sauce. LOVE)
Mix it all up and devour!

As for the coleslaw...I mixed together mayo, cider vinegar and sugar until it tasted like coleslaw (very precise, I know), and poured that over shredded cabbage and carrots. Yummm. Oh, and pepper. Gotta have pepper.
