    With the weather heating up I tend to eat more sandwiches and salads for dinner. This recipe for pulled pork makes great hassle free BBQ sandwiches in the crock-pot!

    @Susan- Sometimes, just getting something on the table is all you can do! : ) When I am having one of those nights (because we ALL have them!) some super simple sides I turn to are raw veggies (baby carrots, celery sticks, sliced cucumber) by themselves or with salad dressing or a dip, fresh fruit (grapes, sliced watermelon, fresh berries), and even pretzels or potato chips with a meal like this.

    This would be good served with cole slaw and potato salad, too.

    Ok did I really just eat spoons of BBQ sauce? This was a very good recipe. I used it as a freezer meal for later this week!

    This was excellent. We used leftovers to make a pork enchilada casserole.

    This was awesome, I didn't have Worcestire Sauce, so I substituted A1 sauce & Frank's red hot sauce. Very yummy!

    Really good. A little more BBQ sauce and a little less vinegar--perfect.
