Real Life, Real Menu~ week of 4/27/20


*This was actually on my menu for Sunday of last week, but we ended up having leftover pizza Sunday! bonus- I already had all of the ingredients!

Pork Shoulder Roast

Have you heard of the Pioneer Woman? I love her show on Food Network. She doesn’t typically make healthy meals, but I have learned to adapt them a little, by making some simple changes. I personally make this into a crockpot meal!

The edits I make are:

When making the marinade/sauce I go step by step, per the recipe except I sub out the sugar- instead of brown sugar, I use coconut sugar
To make it into a crockpot meal, after making the sauce I coat the entire pork roast in the crockpot, flipping it around in it so it coats all sides. Then I put it on low and cook it all day long, over 12 hours
It makes the best shredded pork EVER! You can put it on tortillas, make it into a bowl with rice,or cauliflower rice, or just eat it by itself really- it’s that good.

I absolutely LOVE using my crockpot to make dinner- click here for a link to a similar crockpot on Amazon

By scheduling a night for leftovers, it helps prevent having food waste. Throwing away food makes me feel grumpy and guilty. Not a good combo!

For toppings:





Cauliflower Crust Pizza 
  • Riced Cauliflower
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp parsley
  • 1 tsp basil
  • spaghetti sauce
  • hamburger
  • cheese

Cook the riced cauliflower according to package

Drain the cauliflower rice really well. The more water you can get out, the crispier the crust will be!

Add in the egg

Put on a cookie sheet on aluminum foil & flatten it out

Cover with an egg wash and then seasonings

Bake for 16 min at 450 , then flipped and baked for another 5 min

Put desired sauce & toppings on the top and bake for another 8 min or so


Take out

Each week we try to get take out somewhere to not only have a night off from cooking but to support local business as well!
