Daily Goodie Box

Guess what I got in the mail?! A Daily Goodie Box! It's been a while since I've had one, so my excitement was really up there! I am having so much fun working my way through this box.  Look at all the great products I got to try this month!

Seriously excited to dig in to this box. Come take a closer look!

Herb Guru - Herbal Tea - Can't wait to try this over ice!

Minute Mixology - Cocktail Mixers Margarita - Love the single serve packaging!

Herbal Zap - Immune Support Herbal Supplement - Immune, Digestive, and Party Detox. This time of year my immune system can use that boost! I wish I would have had this Party Detox years ago!

Bubba’s Fine Foods - Blazing Buffalo ‘Nana Chips - Honestly, I was a little afraid of what a spicy banana chip would be, but it was REALLY good! Not to spicy, but just a nice flavor kick. And, very satisfying.

Sir Kensington’s - Chipotle Mayonnaise - This brought some new life to my breakfast wraps! Delish!

Fire & Flavor - Seafood Rub Spice Blend - The Lemon Pepper & Herb was delicious BOLD flavor! I loved it, but next time I will go a little lighter with it for Truckin' Man.

Essence of Vali - Sleep Mini Vials  - Just a little drop on your pillow case will help bring many more zzz's. Lavendar Oil is the first ingredient so a nice floral scent.

NeuroGum - EnlightenMint Nootropic Focus Gum - My husband has already told me I will need to order some Neuro Gum. The flavor lasts, the texture doesn't get weird, but best of all.... It has helped with his afternoon slumps and headaches. 

Procosmet - MTJ Most Rich Mascara Black I am loving this mascara, it passed the test. It stayed on through a wedding!

Organic India - Wellness Infusion Teas - Balance, Thrive, and Immunity. Great natural way to improve Energy, Digestion, and/or Immunity. I do need help on all of these this time of year. Days are shorter, germs are starting to move more, and I'm looking for help!

Easy Pulled Pork

I am so excited for fall. So very excited. Since fall is my favorite season I typically am excited, but this year I am just itching for it. It must be the high humidity we dealt with so much of the summer that is making my need for cool crisp days more intense. Or maybe it's that I want the cool crisp days, so I get to make a big pot of soup, or a nice hearty meal. Mmmmm...  Bring it on!

This summer I did really try to minimize my cooking and time in the kitchen. Just ask my cookie crew, I am getting nothing but complaints!  I'll have to make them dozens of cookies soon. I promise. 

This recipe for Easy Pulled Pork is great for any season though, it just helped minimize my kitchen time since this recipe was enough to feed us multiple meals.  And I just love when I find a new recipe that rocks my kitchen cooking world! And that is what this recipe did. This recipe is still a slow cooked recipe, but in the oven. I haven't thrown a pork roast in the slow cooker since finding this recipe. 

This is so easy and you can customize it to make it your own. I typically can't find Boston Butt's much over 5 pounds, so my cooking time is usually on the lower side. Add as much seasoning as you like, and depending on your roast size. I give it a nice liberal even coating. It's sooo tender when it's done, shredding it is effortless. And the crust... I won't tell you how much I eat while I am shredding it. ;)

Make sure you use your favorite BBQ sauce. I found this roast recipe from my blogging friend Lynn, when I ordered some of her sauce. If you want some amazing BBQ Sauce from South Carolina, you can order some right from Lynn's website: Southern With A Twist.

Easy Pulled Pork 

Boston Butt Roast
1/2 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
1/2 - 1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
1/2 - 1 teaspoon Black Pepper
1/2 - 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
Barbecue Sauce

Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Place roast in roasting pan. Pour apple cider vinegar over top of roast. Season with kosher salt, black pepper, and garlic powder. Bake, uncovered, for 6-8 hours. Remove from oven and let rest 30 minutes. Remove bone, it should slide right out. Remove fat, and shred. Mix with favorite barbecue sauce.

Serve with additional sauce, if desired.
