BBQ Pork Sandwiches
BBQ Pork Sandwiches….easy dinner for busy families!
Fall, or so they call it here in Texas, is a very busy time of year for us. I know this is the case for many families. For us it’s not all year long, for which I am thankful.
As a face painter, fall is our oldest daughter’s busiest season, our middle daughter is training for her black belt test in a few weeks and our son in playing PeeWee football. My parents are in the process of moving here and have been visiting this week to look for a house. We have a lot going on.
I heard a mom at football practice the other night say that she couldn’t remember the last time she had cooked dinner for her family and they had eaten together at home. It made me very sad. Having family meals has always been very important to us. Believe me, I know how difficult it can be to cook for your family and be on the go, which brings us to this post……it does require a little planning but it can be done.
These BBQ Pork Sandwiches are one of the easiest and simplest dinners EVER. It can put a home-cooked meal on the table for your family in no time. It could be served with chips, but for a better option serve with raw veggies. A can of baked beans takes less than five minutes to heat up and goes really well with BBQ. It doesn’t have to be fancy to be good!
We had these this week on a day that we were going to be out most of the day so I put them in the crock pot on low before we left and they were perfect when we were ready for dinner, which happened to be at various time that day.
Here’s the Recipe:
