I had delicious pork at my brother's house in Tennessee so I decided to make a pork roast after New Year's. I made it the traditional way with a few spices and in a crock pot for 12 hours. At dinner when we ate the pork the kids and I all made the same conclusion- it needed barbecue! We just weren't a plain pork and sauerkraut family. Also, my husband was raised to hate pork so he really doesn't want to taste it.
The next day I poured barbecue over the pork roast in the crock pot and put it in the oven for 20 minutes. It came out beautifully. We put the new barbecue on hamburger buns and hate potatoes, mac and cheese, and a salad with it. Did I ghetto-fy my pork roast dinner? At least my picky eaters loved it!
I have discovered that Eli's favorite meal is mac and cheese. As that is also Jon's I will be making mac and cheese a lot more in the future. I make it my grandmother's way with Velveeta cheese. None of that powdered stuff though I think the boys would eat macaroni and cheese in all of its various forms.
As for sauerkraut, I only liked chopped with sausages cooked in it like how my mother makes it. I guess I really am more redneck than I will admit too! Don't be fooled by my city accent y'all!
