April Twentieth

Ella went in nursery for the first time today; she cried slightly more than me. :)

For a celebration, Josh and I had pulled pork sandwiches and quinoa fruit basil salad.

This was my first time making pulled pork, and it was easier than chili! I threw the pork loin in the crockpot with enough water to just barely cover the meat. Cook on high for about 7 hours. Drain water, shred pork, once all water is removed add your favorite BBQ sauce to the meat and cook in crockpot for 30 minutes.

The salad was also pretty good and easy.
Make your dressing first, set aside. Mix 1/2 Tbs of lemon juice and EVOO, chop 5 basil leaves, add pepper and salt to taste.

Cook quinoa according to the box. Mix together 1/2 a cup of blueberries, cubed cucumbers, cubed mango, and dried cranberries; set aside.

Enjoy with some blueberry lemonade; just add fresh blueberries to a glass of dread lemonade.
