With three very picky eaters in our family (including myself – I won’t lie), I’m always looking for something different to fix, and something that won’t take hours to prepare.

This past weekend on our way up to the first Purdue football home game of the season, I was looking through “Parents” magazine, and stumbled on a PORK – the Other White Meat – advertisement for Perfect Pulled Pork.  The recipe was intriguing, as I had all of the ingredients, and the fact that all it took was a crock pot.

I have to share the link for this Perfect Pulled Pork recipe, as my husband raved about it, asked that I fix it again frequently, and agreed to actually eat it left over tonight (leftovers aren’t something that are usually eaten in our home).  He even said there was no need for the barbecue sauce on the side.  I had to pull the bowl away from him so there would actually be some left over…

If you get a chance, it will be the perfect dinner one night soon for your family too!

So, this week is Vacation Bible School at our church and I’m helping with registration.  The boy is loving his class thus far, and loves seeing kids every evening!

VBS week makes dinner a bit crazier though, with needing to leave the house by 5:20 or so, and trying to give the boy a bath before we go!

I don’t know where I found this idea, but I know I read it in a magazine or online.  I wish I could give credit where credit is due.

Last night, I made Grilled Cheese Lollipops thinking the boy would love them.  All they are are Grilled Ham & Cheese sandwiches cut into small circles, and stuck on a small pretzel stick.  My crazy eater however, decided all he wanted was the pretzel sticks, so I was left with a bowl of grilled ham and cheese sandwich circles.  I still think it’s a fun idea, and wonder if it might work with peanut butter too.  Despite the lack of his eating these, I think I’ll try them again sometime soon.  They were easy and cute.  Here’s how mine turned out:
