Saturdays around here are just getting better, and better.. they are slow, comfortable, and all around yummy. Today's adventures include making pulled pork (for the first time..), having a gate installed on our fence, (someone else's adventure technically..), using a amazing, awesome food saver for the first time and all around just being super relaxed..
Boy bought a nice big pork shoulder this morning, brought it home, butchered it up and we saved everything, even the bone and tried out our new food saver.. well, we have had it for a year but just haven't used it yet.. until today. I am sure some of you have these or contraptions similar to these, but what they do is vacuum pack things so that you can store them long enough to survive an apocolypse.. it's really a great product and I am so glad we've finally put it to use..
I have the beginnings of my pulled pork for you all.. right now, it's soaking in a tub of marinade, ssslowly cooking away. So excited for this one!
