What to Expect
This week at These Old Cookbooks, we are serving up delicious meals that Grandma would approve!
How do you approach meal planning for the week? I tend to make a large meal on the weekends and then have enough leftovers to be either eaten as a second (or third) meal, or which can be taken and turned into a completely new meal. My husband isn’t always the best at eating leftovers. However, if I turn the leftovers into something new, he is none the wiser.
This week, I am making a huge pan of Oven Pulled Pork which can be warmed up quickly for a lunch or supper on the go. I also love to serve pulled pork over baked potatoes or baked sweet potatoes. The meat, if kept without being smothered in BBQ sauce, can be cut up and used in casseroles, or put the meat in an air tight freezer bag, toss in the freezer and pull out on a busy, busy, busy weeknight.
In the first link below, we have a step-by-step plan for the easiest, moistest, most-flavorful pulled pork. Our friend who is a caterer shared some of her secrets with us and her pulled pork is the best ever!
