It’s hard to believe how close we are to the end of the year. We can count the days until 2011 in weeks, not months. My calendar is almost filled and closed for the year. And in a few brief weeks, blogs everywhere will suddenly be filled with recaps and resolutions — saying goodbye to what has proven a challenging year for many, and help to the hope of a fresh start (albeit an imaginary one).
But first, we have Christmas and all that entails. In the next week, I will bake hundreds of cookies. I will wrap present after present. We’ll go to concerts and parties. We’ll buy and trim our tree.
Dinner? Yea, that will happen to. Somehow. I mean despite being busy, we will still have to eat, right? On weeks like these, this fab recipe for Slow Cooker BBQ Pulled Pork is perfect. It’s easy, fast to throw to together and delicious. The whole family loves it too, which is a gigantic bonus.
