Pulling the Pork

Whenever we make a trip to Hays, KS, we always know there will be literally, a ton of food. When Larry was just back there for his mom’s 92nd birthday, once again, as expected, there was a ton of food. That is just a given for any Billinger event. Larry brought home a big bag of smoked pork that our brother-in-law made, most probably from one of his own pigs too . James always makes such good smoked meats.

With the temperature being so scorchingly hot and my little unexpected visit to the ER A Little Trip to The ER, needless to say, I wasn’t really feeling like cooking anything. I was grateful we had the bag of smoked, pulled pork. We just made up some some pork sandwiches and served them with French fries. We topped them with some of my North Carolina Smoky BBQ Sauce, and they were just perfect for a no frills, summer dinner on the deck. Saucing It Up.

Sometimes, simple is just best.

Thank you all for the well wishes and kind thoughts. I am doing much, much better. Pain, I can easily handle. I wasn’t worried about that. But I have kind of become accustomed to breathing, and when I couldn’t breathe very well, that was the deciding factor on whether or not I should go to the ER. Fortunately, nothing broken and my lungs are just fine. It was just a nasty bruise on my ribs, that only time can heal. Hopefully it just won’t take that much time. 🙂
