Hubercus Domesiticus

As I spend more time at home, I am becoming better (and by 'better', I mean 'less bad') at running the home front. Now, keep in mind that I am still terrible at it. I tend to place the mail in too many different piles, the sink always seems to be dirty (empty, mind you, but dirty) and I have managed to shrink/ruin/mess up a few articles of clothing along the way. Alas, I am working on it.

Between hunting for jobs and applying to graduate school, I have begun to cook dinner. My latest weapon of choice is the Crock-Pot. Whoever invented this thing was a genius. Even I can cook a meal that tastes like I didn't cook it with an Acetyline torch.

Tonight's dish: Pulled-pork BBQ sandwiches with fresh onion, topped with a blue cheese crumble cole slaw.

Before you get too excited and 'wowed' by such a delicious meal, it is as simple as throwing 2.5 pounds of pork in the Crock-Pot. Four hours later, mix in BBQ sauce, onion, brown sugar and lemon juice. Top with store-bought cole slaw. Serve.
