It is so nice to have football back...I feel like my Sundays are complete again. Saturday we swang by Bisher's in Poway to pick up a Pork Shoulder....Pretty stoked on that place. They had a few things in the meat counter that I definitely want to go back and give a run for their money...errr I guess a run for my money.
Seasoned up the pork butt Saturday afternoon...Vacuum sealed it...Tossed it in the fridge to wait it's turn in the slow cooker. Tossed it in around midnight and pulled it out around noon on Sunday. I feel like I now know what being tortured is like...The whole house smelled amazing all day! Pulled the meat out...Shredded it up and tossed it in the oven to get a nice crunchy carnitas texture going on. I am pretty stoked on how it turned out...Next time I'll use a little less cinnamon and add my cilantro a little earlier in the slow cooker...and maybe add a little lime while I am at it.
Laid around on the couch for the morning games, enjoying the free preview of NFL RedZone. Eh...I think I enjoyed it...It was nice to see highlights but it was almost a little too chaotic. But I still enjoyed it. Then we showered up and cruised down to OB to Damien and Angelina's to watch the afternoon game and knock back a few tacos.
After the game we cruised down to the backyard for some quality bag tossing and a few more frosty beverages. It was a pretty solid welcome back to the NFL. I missed you old friend. Damien and Angelina...Thanks for having us over!
