What is so great about a crock-pot? The fact that you literally throw all your ingredients, spices, and sauces into a large pot for the entire day and do virtually nothing once it’s ready – that is what is so great about a crock pot!

We got an All-Clad stainless steel crock pot from my Grandma for our engagement and I finally put it to use this past Sunday with pulled pork sandwiches.

While the lad was putting together our entertainment center for the living room, I decided to whip up a batch of cookies for dessert. Has anyone ever put a little nutmeg in with the dry ingredients? It’s great! The cookies taste like Christmas 🙂

I only have one cookie rack at the moment, don’t worry there’s one on the wedding registry so I don’t have to cool my cookies on paper towels anymore!

I cooked a 6 lb pork butt for the sandwiches, after all was said and done, we have enough meat for 3 whole meals plus probably two lunches, amazing time management there!

pork should shred easily with a fork and knife

let it cool before you refrigerate or freeze leftovers, i portioned them out for meals as well

Tonight I am just doing a quick chicken stir-fry and we’re going to decorate our first christmas tree together!

Time to decoarte this baby!

Did you decorate your Christmas Tree yet?
