Last night I made pork Carnita’s, and wow, they were frigging fantastic. Hubby brought home a boneless pork shoulder for about $9.00 and we froze enough for 3 more meals and there is enough for tonight’s supper So for roughly 2.10 per for the main part of dinner that’s not bad, so if your interest in the recipe check it out.

Slow Cooker Pork Carnita’s:

Dry Rub: 2 Tbsp Sea Salt,

1 -1/2 Tsp Black Pepper,

2 Tsp Ground Cumin,

1 Tbsp Oregano

1 Tsp Onion Powder,

3 – 4 lbs Boneless Pork Shoulder or Butt

Rub all over Pork, make sure you cover it, place in slow cooker.

Now, chop up a Hot Pepper (deseeded & chopped)

1 small Red Onion (finely chopped)

1 cup of Orange Juice (Fresh is best, 3 oranges but use what you have)

Now place in slow cooker on High, for about 8 hours, with the fat cap up and leave it, but I have to fair warn you, the smell will fill your house, and drive you and your family insane while they are waiting, it will be tortuous.

Now if you freeze some, make sure to have some of the juices in there with the pork. but to make this Carnita’s you would take some of the pork after it is forked apart, drop it in a frying pan, and golden it up and flip. now you can make tacos, or burritos, or enchiladas, or take some of this pork and place on top of a bed of salad to keep with the healthy stature. Anyways please enjoy, and if there is a recipe or something you would like to see please feel free to say something, I just love my Cross products.

Well its that time again, lets grab our beverage and get it going.

Todays topic, family…I called my folks this morning to wish them a happy anniversary. Hubby looked over and said, how many years have they been married now, as I started counted back by eldest siblings age, I called Mom back to double check, because, I hate to be wrong especially over dates. But 64 years. Now let that sink in for a second. They dated for about 7 years before getting married. Thats awesome, they are still so very much in love.

I remember oh my god, seems like forever ago. There was this woman on the radio Delilah show, (I hope I spelled that correct) she had a Valentines day contest going on. I was young, alot younger then I am now, I believe the contest was to write a poem about love, well as all of you have figured out by now, I write from the heart, or mind but definately Not a poet. Anywho, I sat down gave it thought and wrote a poem about my folks and how they are truly an amazing couple. We won, of course I gave the gift and the poem to them because this is thier love story.

You will not very very often see a gushy side to me, but to see them so in love today its nice to know that at any age romance can still live. They have been through 4 adopted kids that they truly wanted, grandchildren. Life was not always easy, Dad was in the service, Mom was a perfect Military wife and Mother. Dont get me wrong she worked also but because she wanted to. I never heard them argue, I never heard them treat each other with any form of disrespect-ever. A strong, loving, happy fulfilling marriage.

With this I am going to end today with a very Happy Anniversary to my folks and anyone else out there celebrating today, enjoy your day as best you can. Peace, love each other, until we meet again. Your Grumpy Godmother❤

Its that time again, lets grab our drinks and its Coffeetime with the Grumpy Godmother time:

Today there have been so many thoughts first how amazing is NASA/SpaceX right now the final preparations are being made for the Space X Falcon Rocket Launch, this is historic. This is something amazing that our kids should be excited about.

It was amazing to watch, to see the rocket and the men make it into space. It felt like such a proud moment, until you could here the asshat Protestors. Really what the hell is wrong with Us, America!?! What is all this self entitled bullshit!?!

But I have to admit, I am disappointed in the people who are destroying our Country from the inside out, Our Enemies Can and will do that. You can protest, what happened was wrong to George Floyd, but please dont disrespect his memory or name! Those police should and will pay. And people should speak out about all and any corruption, never sit quietly that is one of our God Given Rights of this Country that many Men and Women OF EVERY RACE AND CREED HAVE FOUGHT IN OUR Military FOR ALL OF US! But No One gave the right to hurt anyone innocent just because they wear a uniform. NO one has the right to set Post offices, police stations, Stores, buildings of any kind on fire! Your breaking the law by destroying landmarks

Peace out, treat each other well. And stop destroying our Country, we are the ones who will have to come together to rebuild ! The Grumpy Godmother out.
