Hope everyone is having a great Memorial Day! We had a picnic today and plan on playing volleyball with some friends this evening. I hope that we all took time to remember our fallen heroes. I am forever grateful for what they have done and the sacrifice they made. And I'm blessed to live in this country!
Our picnic food was yummy and super easy. We had pork BBQ sandwiches, chips, watermelon and homemade chocolate chip cookies.
Yesterday, I put a pork loin in the crock pot on high for about 5 hours. I just put it in, pour one can of chicken broth in, sprinkle liberally with salt and pepper and your are done! I make gravy from the broth and shred the pork and serve it on top of mashed potatoes. It is one of my husband's favorite meals. I serve this pretty often since Kroger has these pork loins for about $1.88/pound pretty often. One loin gets at least two meals with my family, and if Im lucky and have a little leftover, I make soup or BBQ with it.
So today, I just took my leftover shredded pork from yesterday, heat it up and then add BBQ sauce to it.
What are your favorite picnic foods?
