"Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not changelike shifting shadows."
James 1:17 There is so much to be thankful for even in the difficult times if we take the time to really see.  Not always easy. The past week for me held alot of joy.  Here is just an example in pictures....



























Recipe Review...Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Image
This is an easy 3 ingredient recipe that I will be sure to make again.  Simple and tasty.  I will have to give it a 10/10 on my cooking scale....Slow Cooker Pulled Pork....
I studied the recipe...
1 (2 pound) pork tenderloin (I used Pork Boneless Center Loin) 1 (12 fluid ounce) can or bottle root beer (Good ole A& W) 1 (18 ounce) bottle your favorite barbecue sauce (KC Master Piece Hickory and Brown Sugar) 8 hamburger buns


DIRECTIONS:
Place the pork tenderloin in a slow cooker; pour the root beer over the meat. Cover and cook on low until well cooked and the pork shreds easily, 6 to 7 hours. Note: the actual length of time may vary according to individual slow cooker. Drain well. Stir in barbecue sauce. Serve over hamburger buns.
I gathered my ingredients and started cooking...
Removed the pork from the crockpot, removed the fat, shredded the meat with a couple of forks, and the BBQ sauce and it was ready.....Easy and Yummy!!

Would I make this again?  Yes!!! Really good and my Souther S…

Recipe Review...Asian Beef with Snow Peas from all recipes.com

I discovered a new magazine.  New to me, but also new to the world....All Recipes Magazine.  I have a sample of their new magazine and decided to make one of their "Ready in Minutes" meals one night after work.  I attempted Asian Beef with Snow Peas (in my case canned peas:-).
I studied the recipe...
3 tablespoons soy sauce 2 tablespoons rice wine (I did not have rice wine so I searched for a subsitution on line and they said to use white wine.  I used Pinot Grigio.  Next time I think I will add a sweeter wine) 1 tablespoon brown sugar 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch 1 tablespoon vegetable oil 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger root 1 tablespoon minced garlic (I used garlic powder) 1 pound beef round steak, cut into thin strips (I just bought the meat alreay sliced for stir fry.  I think next time I will add a bit more beef) 8 ounces snow peas (I used canned peas drained of course) (I also made instant white rice.  Made 6 servings and mixed everything into that to serve.
I also doubled the sauce …

Hebrews 12:1-3 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us,fixing our eyes on Jesus,the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
Happy Monday Everyone!
Enjoy Your World:-)
