Still in Salt Lake City

Michele, Todd, Ashton & Reilly came over to spend the day with us today. It's so good to see them on a regular basis. I have stocked my cupboards with kid stuff that I have wanted to do for so long. Since we've lived so far away from them I never got to do the Nana kind of stuff. Now every time they come over they say, "I'm hungry". I just love it because I now have a variety of things that kids love. Chicken nuggets, string cheese, dried cherries, apple juice, etc, etc.

Today I woke up at 9:45. Yes, 9:45!! I can't believe I slept in that late. Usually the guy next door wakes me up at 6:00 when he starts up his truck and leaves it running for about a half hour. There are a lot of guys here that work at the Refineries in town. Then Rod's snoring wakes me up at about 7:30. By 8:00 I give up and just get up.

I put a pork butt in the crock pot this morning with some salt, pepper, garlic powder and liquid smoke. After about 6 hours I drained all the juice, shredded it and added some barbecue sauce that we bought at Tom's Ribs in Texas and let it cook for another hour. Boy oh boy was it ever good. Since I don't like coleslaw I sauteed some Napa cabbage with garlic, olive oil and red pepper flakes and put that on top of the pulled pork on the bun. Yummy!!

After


I think they like their lunch





Then the Ashton & Reilly went out to ride their scooters. I told Reilly she had to give me her "binky" if she wanted to ride her scooter. This was her reaction



Guess who won?


Want some eggs to go with that ham??
