Last week, I posted about my Green Tomato Salsa, my attempt to salvage my drowned garden. Now I am going to attempt to make it useful! My family absolutely loves pork butt roasts. I cook them all of the time in the slow cooker, with apple cider vinegar, and then use the cooking liquids (let’s be honest, it is almost straight fat) to make a
I don’t know what the weather has been like outside of South Carolina this summer. I have been so caught up in our crazy weather that I really haven’t paid much attention to anywhere else.

My mother-in-law is awesome. She has many attributes and talents, but most of her family would probably say the finest of these qualities is her cooking. My in-laws live in Florida from October to June, then come home for the summer, and while she is here my mother-in-law cooks Sunday dinner for around 20 people every Sunday.
