From Scratch

We have been on a kick lately for cooking from scratch. Here’s a short list of what we’ve made in the past month.

Pulled Pork, Rolls, and Coleslaw
Oatmeal Bread
Sausage Patties
Biscuits and Sausage Gravy
Rice Pudding

The pulled pork was a real achievement. Most of the hard work was done by Justin. He prepped bread dough a day in advance and let it rise before forming rolls and baking gorgeous soft rolls for the sandwiches. Justin rubbed a pork shoulder with his secret spice blend, and cooked it for a day in the slow cooker. I made coleslaw dressing from scratch and tossed it. The result was absolutely irresistible. Sure, it took some planning…but what a result! We are definitely going to continue this trend.
