1. Is the farm for you? How about a ranch, a village or a city? Which is your choice and why?
The beach. My answer always has been and always will be the beach!
2. A short auto trip for the weekend with friends or a long vacation? Where would you go?
Can I choose both? I love doing both!
3. The quiet life at home with a cuppa and TV or a good book or a night out with friends? Which sounds good today?
I would choose tv and/or good book, not doing any night out with friends right now.
4. You have a choice of dinner and a movie or a game of cards and snacks at the neighbors. Where are you going tonight?
Game of cards and snacks at the neighbors! My next door neighbors are my son and daughter in law, and granddaughter 🙂
Combine all ingredients in slow cooker and cook on low for two to three hour. Serve with Jiffy cornbread or Ritz crackers
I had both Jiffy cornbread and Ritz crackers so decided to have use the crackers and save the cornbread for beans.
I ordered the ingredients online and the canned BBQ pork was out of stock so I bought a container of Jack Daniel’s Pulled Pork, hoping it would turn out ok. It was very good. I’ve made this before and forgot to use less ketchup, it was still good, but hopefully next time I’ll remember to use 3 or 4 oz. and see how that tastes.
This is a very quick and easy recipe and I love it any time of year.
Review(s) Coming Up…
I may catch up on the few books I didn’t review at the end of ’21, not sure yet
You may remember my blog theme was upgraded and I had all kinds of problems with it, especially with the posting and font. I worked on fixing it for a few weeks but got way too aggravated so I asked my son to try to fix it and within 30 minutes it was backed to to the previous version!
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened,
and I will give you rest.”
“Rest. You crave it. Your body needs it. Your tired soul longs for it. But in the madness of your day-to-day rush, how can you possibly find it? Truth be told, when life’s demands overwhelm us, the first thing we sacrifice is our own rest. But God has a different plan for us: He made us to enjoy deep, reviving refreshment in Him. 365 Devotions for Finding Rest will guide you in a yearlong journey toward embracing His rest in your life. You’ll be amazed as God’s peace and restoration transform you.”
I’ve had this book for a few years but haven’t read it yet. With all the stress etc. of the last two years I haven’t been getting as much rest as I need, so I feel like I should read this now. I’ll write my review on Dec. 31st when I finish it.
