Put a kick in your family's dinner

Yummy Pie

Who is ready for some kickin' pork sandwiches?

One of my favorites meals to cook is pulled pork. Why? Easy, because you have dinner for two to three days with it and all you can do to change it up is make different sides each day. Which saves you time in the kitchen to spend doing the things you want to do.

I serve these massive sandwich with mayo, pickles and cheese to put on the sandwich. Yes, some think that is odd, but don't discard it till you try it.

Then for the sides try some homestyle fries, grilled squash (I'm providing these recipe here below the pork recipe), potato salad or even some homemade mac and cheese.

Happy cookin' ya'll...
