PULLED PORK STUFFED SWEET POTATOES

October 10, 2013

There’s a plight of many stay-at-home-moms or work-from-homers. When I first began doing this blog full time, there were many days I would not get out of my pajamas. Early on I was like, “this is awesome!” But, much like a high schooler on summer vacation, after awhile of sleeping in and having too flexible of a schedule, you start to just feel gross.

I’ve found I must force myself to get dressed everyday. It keeps me feeling like a contributing member of society rather than a frump-monster.

My wise and kind husband suggested I try taking a class of some kind because believe it or not, it is helpful for the thriving of life to be around other warm bodied humans. Who knew! I chose an exercise class (pure barre) and  I’ve really liked it. And bonus points because when I exercise you just feel better, ya know?

    This turned out quite well! I added large chunks of onion in the beginning to the crock pot mixture! Seemed like an odd concept but turned out great!

    Sweet cousin Rachel, thanks for making me a winner at home with your delicious recipes. I rarely cook, until lately thanks to you! We just had this tonight for dinner and it was perfect!
