An Empty Sack

Can't Stand Upright


General Thoughts

Easy Crockpot Pulled Pork

Pork butt shoulder and/or picnic pork shoulder
1/4 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
3/4 cup water
Brown Sugar
Cayenne Pepper
Garlic powder
Onion powder

Put apple cider vinegar and water in crockpot. Combine all the spices. Rub on pork. Put pork in crockpot. Leave crockpot on low for at least 8 hours. (Once I left a huge one in for 14 hours, and it was delicious).

Lazy Style:
Just put pork and liquids and pick-and-choose spices in crockpot. Don’t get your hands dirty, and don’t measure. It still comes out delicious.

Add Sweet Baby Ray’s and a bun for sandwiches
Throw on pizza
Use for tacos or nachos
Scramble with eggs for brunch

The best words

The central function of imaginative literature is to make you realize that other people act on moral convictions different from your own. -William Empson, literary critic and poet (27 Sep 1906-1984)
