My Idea of Comfort Food
The Whole Pork Shoulder
I'm feeling more up-beat and confident today. I hope this feeling lasts. I'll do my best to keep it going.
The days are so much easier to deal with when I'm not having to grapple with full-on bouts of depression, insecurity and self-loathing.
Onwards and upwards.
PS - I oven-roasted the pork shoulder tonight, instead of cooking it in a slow cooker. We enjoyed it MUCH better "oven style". That's definitely the way to go (for us). Can you say "crispy pork skin"? Mmmm. :-)
