Dinner Bell! - Pulled Pork Sandwiches

Pulled Pork Sandwiches
from the kitchen of Cathy Cordero via Meredith

1 cup ketchup
1/4 cup brown sugar
4-5 cloves garlic, chopped
3/4 tsp dried sage
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp pepper
3-5 lb boneless pork shoulder
hamburger buns or hoagie rolls
barbeque sauce (Sweet Baby Ray's is our favorite!!!)
coleslaw (optional)

In the crock-pot, mix ketchup, brown sugar, garlic, sage, oregano, salt and pepper. Trim fat from pork and cut in half. Add meat to crock-pot and turn to coat all sides with ketchup mixture. Cover and cook on low until very, very tender. About 8 hours on low; 6 hours on high. Transfer pork to a large bowl. Using two forks, pull meat apart until shredded. Pour juices from crock-pot over pork to moisten. Spoon onto buns or rolls. Add barbeque sauce and/or coleslaw if you're from the South. So delicious.

Dinner Bell! - Chicken Pot Pie

Apparently our very own Sarah Moore knows how to make a mean (and by that, I mean delicious) pot pie. Lauren Bain passed on the "how to" she got from Sarah...yummmmm!

Chicken Pot Pie
from the kitchen of Sarah Moore

I use the pre-made Pillsbury Pie Crusts. I put the bottom one into the pie pan and pre-bake it.

Microwave a potato until it's soft. Then peel it and cube it. Place the potato cubes into the pie pan on top of the crust.

Cut up and saute a chicken breast or two and then add that to the pie.

Fill the rest of the pie with frozen mixed veggies.

Then I make the sauce by combining the below ingredients in a sauce pan, stirring constantly until it's thickened. Pour the sauce over everything in the pie until it's completely full. Sometimes I end up with a little more sauce then I need but try to fit as much of it in as I can.

Ingredients for the sauce
1 cup milk
1 can chicken broth
1 1/2 tsp boullion
1/2 tsp poultry seasoning
1 tsp parsley
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp thyme
1/2 tsp garlic powder
3 tablespoon flour

Then add the other pie crust to the top and bake at 350 until crust is golden and insides are bubbly. I place a cookie sheet under the pie when I bake it as it tends to spill out.

Dinner Bell! - Stuffed Pepper Soup

The hubby and I are on Weight Watchers and I made this the other night and have to say it is a keeper! Even the kids ate it! I used ground turkey in ours but I'm sure ground beef is just as delicious.

Go here for the recipe!
