Old Settlers Day, and slow cooker Texas pulled pork


I hope everyone was able to check out Old Settlers Days this past weekend. It was a full day of both work and fun for me.

For those of you who don’t know, I work part-time at Grumpy’s Grill & Pub. My day started at work helping get everything ready for a busy day. Mike had made up his delicious pulled pork sandwiches for the day, and we knew we’d be busy after the parade.

Thankfully, we were all able to go out and watch the parade with everyone else before we got busy. Since there weren’t many kids around, I was able to go out and collect some candy for others and some for myself. Unfortunately, this also made me an easy target for one of the floats with kids armed and ready to fire with some water guns filled with surprisingly cold water.

Immediately after the parade, people started pouring into Grumpy’s to enjoy our pulled pork sandwiches and to cool down inside. It was a constant stream of people coming in to eat or to enjoy a cold beverage before they moved on to the other festivities in town.

It was such a perfect day; I decided to go home and do some work around our house in the garden and in our yard. My husband, Josh, and I were able to get the garden weeded and get more decorations up along our fence.

At the end of the day, we were able to relax and enjoy the music from the street dance from our front steps. It was a great way to wind down and enjoy a perfect night.

This week, I’m sharing a recipe for slow cooker pulled pork. I normally don’t care for recipes with a ton of ingredients, but this one has ingredients that I almost always have stocked in my pantry. I don’t mind using more ingredients in a slow cooker recipe, because it’s so easy to just dump them in and walk away to enjoy later. Enjoy!
