3 lbs pork roast
16 oz chunky salsa
1 can coke
2 cup brown sugar
place pork in crock pot , fill half way up the side of the pork with water. cook on high for 4 hours. drain water. cut pork into thirds, then mix sauce [coke, brown sugar, + salsa] and pour on top. cook 4 more hours on low. shred pork. mix back in with sauce if you want it saucy or not.

cafe rio rice
3 cups uncooked rice

2 cloves minced garlic
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
1 can green chili's diced
3/4 tsp salt

1 tbs butter
1/2 onion, chopped
saute onion, garlic and butter until the onion is soft. add water, rice, and remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. after it begins to boil rapidly, reduce the heat to low and cover with the lid and simmer for about 20 minutes.

cafe rio creamy cilantro ranch dressing

cute jewelry

Taylah can eat and eat and eat. She has just recently started eating a lot, now that bottles are only at bed time. Soon hopefully she'll be of the bottle for good. It's hard because I have tried about 6 different sippy cups and she hates them all. Anyone know any tricks?
