Amazingly Delicious Dinner

Between Our Best Bites and Pinterest I have been finding some very delicious recipes. The other night we tried four new recipes all in one meal. Let's just say it was one of our favorite meals ever. I found two of the recipes on Pinterest, one online, and one in Our Best Bites cookbook. Here they are:

They were the BEST pulled pork sandwiches I have ever had. The meat was cooked in a slow cooker and then after it was done a homemade sauce was added to it. The only step I didn't do was adding all the onions and peppers back to the meat mixture. If you make this recipe just make sure you read through the instructions before you begin.

We bought dinner rolls for the slider buns, lightly buttered them, and toasted them on the stove top. 

The Second Recipe: Homemade Coleslaw (to go on the pulled pork sandwiches). I can't find the recipe, but it was just pre-packed coleslaw mix, light mayo, sugar, and vinegar. Mixed it taste.

The Third Recipe: Baked Sweet Potato Fries with Honey-Lime Dip (from Our Best Bites)

These fries are so delicious. My husband and baby both love sweet potatoes and they loved this recipe. We opted not to do the dipping sauce since we had so many other flavors going on.

The Fourth Recipe: Roasted Broccoli (from Our Best Bites cookbook). The whole family loved the broccoli. It was tossed with olive oil, salt, and pepper, and baked for about 20 minutes and then topped with parmesan cheese. It was a little crispy with great flavor.

In case you were wondering - yes, dinner took a couple of hours that night... but it was SO worth it!
