She's right - winter is all hot chocolate, snow, and crockpot dinners! And then I start to think about just how much I love living in a place that has all four seasons. In fact, I think we are pretty lucky that when football comes, it gets chilly and the leaves turn orange and red! When Christmas arrives, we are blanketed with snow; and by the time it hits my birthday, well, spring is right around the corner.
I'm looking forward to the delicious meals we'll be making as we spend our first winter in one place! Without the commuting between each others' apartments, I have found all the time we used to spend on commuting to each other, we now spend with each other! And I love every minute!! With shorter days, the crockpot becomes my go-to; otherwise I feel like we're eating dinner in the middle of the night. It also really hampers my photographing abilities (what little I have over here). But don't let the photos fool you, this tastes AMAZING. In fact, we've made it twice...and it's perfect to enjoy on a blustery Sunday watching the game!
Taste of Home)
1 onion, sliced
1 pound pork loin
16 ounces salsa
1/2 tablespoon chipotle hot sauce (or more to taste)
1/2 cup beer
2 tablespoons Beefy Onion Soup Mix
4 rolls, split and toasted
In the crockpot, combine sliced onion, pork loin, salsa, chipotle hot sauce, beer, and Beefy Onion Soup Mix. Cook on low 6 hours, until pork is falling apart. With two forks, shred the pork and return to the crockpot, mixing the pork with sauce for about 5 minutes more. Serve on toasted rolls.
Until the next time my oven is on...
