I have some exciting news to share, not the news I can't share yet), but new news! I found out yesterday that after being on the wait list for 2 years, I got tickets to go see American Idol next Wednesday! Now I am looking for my plus 1 to go with me... It will be soooooo fun!
In other news, I went to the Pioneer Woman's book signing yesterday! We stood in line for 4 hours waiting to meet her and at 9:30, we finally reached the front of the line. She was so sweet, I wish we could have sat down and had a long chat.
Here is where we started in line....all the way down a block.
With Ree and my friends Brook, Hillary and her daughter Katie.
Her sister Betsy was with her on the left.
My signed cookbook!
In honor of Ree, here is a recipe from her new cookbook that I made last week.
Pioneer Woman's Dr. Pepper Pulled Pork
1 pork roast (shoulder or butt roast) - 5-7 pounds
2 cans of Dr. Pepper- I measured out 16 oz
1 can chipotle peppers in adobe sauce
2 Tbsp brown sugar
salt and pepper
Quarter the onion and place it in the bottom of a crockpot.
Set pork roast on top.
Season the roast with salt and pepper.
Top the roast with the entire can of adobe peppers.
Pour Dr. Pepper into the pot.
Stir the brown sugar into the Dr. Pepper.
Cook on low for 6-8 hours. You will want to turn the roast every few hours.
Remove meat and shred with a fork.
Skim the fat off the top of the sauce and then return the meat to the sauce.
Serve with rolls or in tortillas!
