Baked Pulled Pork Fajitas January 19, 2013

I love making slow food, really low and slow food. The other day, my husband took a 7 pound pork shoulder and cooked it all day on the grill. It was delicious, it had a perfect bark, the sauce was great, the texture perfect. One problem: there are only two of us and there was 7 pounds of meat. Time to get creative. Although it’s great on its own, in sandwiches, maybe a stir fry, or fried rice, I just wanted something different. I look around my pantry and fridge and figured make some sort of Southern, Texan, Mexican, baked thing. It was pretty darn good so I’m putting this out there as a base idea for another use of leftover pork!

Baked Pulled Pork Fajitas

Ingredients

  • 2 small flour fajitas
  • leftover pulled pork
  • favorite barbecue sauce or hot sauce
  • Mexican cheese blend
  • 2 small celery parts with leaves
  • salsa

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Lay out fajitas and add a heaping tablespoon to the middle of fajita. Add some extra barbecue or hot sauce. Sprinkle with cheese, about 1 tsp. or to taste. Top with one of the celery parts each.
  2. Roll the fajitas as tight as possible and place in a baking dish large enough to accommodate the fajitas.
  3. Top with salsa, a dash or two more of desired sauce, cheese (about 1 Tbsp. for now, will add more later).
  4. Place in oven and cook, uncovered for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, add more cheese and continue to cook about 5 minutes or until all cheese is melted. Enjoy!

 

 

Simple Living Food June 18, 2012

There is nothing that says real simple living like the times we take ourselves completely out of our element. For some, our home is in the urban jungle, for others it’s the suburban safari, and others the country zoo. No matter where you are or where you live, we all need to unplug and unwind and take time to be what we were born to be – the human. Just like every other animal, we were built to sustain in this world. Our problems lie in the struggle between how we were made to live and how we want to live in this world. Many people believe living like a human is beneath them – the Jones’ would’ve gotten take out tonight right? In our world where being busy is somehow a gauge of success (although I am not sure why), in my natural rebellious way, I did the opposite. I took a long weekend with some of my favorite people and animals to spend in the woods. Tents, a campfire, and nature are all you need to put life in perspective at times. (more…)
