The kids and I had fun creating our own frozen fruit Popsicles (made with a secret GREEN juice blend including broccoli, spinach and wheatgerm...hahahahahah!!!!!).
Juliana helped by dropping the strawberries into the blender and Nate by pushing all of the necessary blending buttons (of course).
Later on, we concocted our own Smoked Chicken Risotto recipe, (with leftover smoked chicken from the night before) and I must say, it was quite a success! (Recipe will come later today)
In addition, part of our preparation for a week long trip to the Outer Banks in NC next week, included smoking twenty (that's right, I said 20!) pounds of Boston Pork Butt to freeze and serve up to the 22 people who will all be staying in one house together!
A total of 13 hours was needed to get it to be JUST right, and at 11 pm last night as Pete and I stuck our forks into the two "butts" to begin the shredding....we soon realized that it was definitely going to be well worth the long day! A half hour later, meat having fallen right off the bone like butter, barbecue sauce added, and pulled pork stored in zip lock bags, we fed some scraps to the dogs and headed off to bed- where we dreamed of savory pulled pork sandwiches!
All in all, I have to say it was a fun day filled with excellent food resulting in very satisfied bellies!
Happy Monday to everyone!
More later, Kate
