Today is a day of celebrations! It is Maman's birthday as well as Tante Sue Sue's! (Happy Birthday en Floride!)
It was such a lovely October day today. Mom and I created a scarecrow decoration for the garden. She is lovely non!

I made a delicous dinner that was actually pretty easy to make. I found a recipe for Hawaiian pulled pork sandwiches that you cook in a slow cooker. I couldn't find pork shoulder so I bought country pork ribs. The recipe calls for all sorts of spices including pineapple juice, soy sauce, teriyaki sauce, paprika, garlic, onions, etc. I tweaked it a bit to make it fit what I had. I started cooking late, around 11pm, finished everything shortly after midnight, and let it cook all night. I turned it off at 7 am. It was super tender and after I let it cool the meat fell apart easily for pulled pork!
For the sides I made asian slaw, topped with peanuts and chow mein noodles for crunch and I cooked up a ginger soy dressing. I also made my corn cakes again! All of these flavors tasted great together, top a corn cake with slaw and pork! An alternative to the same old pork sandwich.
|Of course Baby arrived shortly after the plate hit the table.|
|...and Bennet wasn't far off either.|
|I was going through our children's books earlier, I'm going to share some of my fall favorites in a blog very soon, and found this one. I LOVE the Little Critter collection. Always a favorite growing up.|
|Baby helped mommy find the frog. There he is!! In each book you have to find Little Critters friends. In the other books it is spider and cricket.|
A fun day overall. Now off to watch "The Middle" and "Modern Family." Lots more to blog about this week! Teaser: Jane and I went to a patisserie the other day. Stay tuned!
Have a bright night!
