Roast Pork/ Barbecue

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!

The Genius of the Sheriff of Nottingham

Robin Hood:Prince of Thieves came out in 1991 and starred Kevin Costner. It was a fun interpretation of the Robin Hood story and had great reviews and earned lots of money. It cast the popular Kevin Costner with Morgan Freeman as his wise Obi Wan Kenobi companion. Bryan Adams had a hit song "Everything I Do, I Do For You" that was over played on early nineties radio. As I was always obsessed with Medieval History I fell in love with this movie despite inaccuracies. I was 16 when I first saw it around 1992. The problem with this movie was that I fell in love with the Sheriff of Nottingham, the nasty bad guy and thought Kevin Costner's Robin Hood was a "dork". That is what happens when someone is a bad actor and this movie showed how weak Costner's acting was compared to his supporting cast and his villain, Alan Rickman. Alan Rickman "hammed" it up in this film and the audience could tell he was enjoying his role as the villain. Every line, no m

Merlin and Doctor Who

As many of you know, Doctor Who is my favorite show to watch. I started watching it a couple of years ago when I read an article that said "Weeping Angels" were the scariest monster ever shown on television. So I found the Doctor Who episode "Blink" and tried it out. After that, I got hooked and have converted many to "Whovianism" and now we watch it as a family. I started watching a new British show, Merlin and quickly discovered that many of the actors on Merlin have also been guests on Doctor Who. Here are some fun facts about Merlin actors who made surprise visits on Doctor Who.

The Evil Eye

As many of you know, I had a miscarriage last February. After it happened my husband told me that he believed that one of his co-workers gave him the evil eye after he told the person about my pregnancy. Of course, I thought that was silly but thought it interesting that my husband brought up such an old Uzbek superstition.
