Can You Say YUM?

Last night our friends T and K came over for supper and as usual, we had a great time :o) Food AND company was wonderful! Let's just say...we didn't worry about our waistlines. LOL!

I thought I would share with you some of my favourite foods. I'll warn you now that this post will be graphic and I'm not responsible for any cravings or over eating that may result on your part if you proceed any further ;o)

So, there have been a few new things on the market lately. Haagen-Dazs ice cream has put out a single serving ice cream cup that you can buy at the two biggest grocery stores in Canada. There are five flavours (Strawberry, Vanilla Bean, Dulce De Leche, Chocolate Chocolate Chunk and Chocolate Peanut Butter) and each has its own spoon so you can eat it on the go! My FAVOURITE is Chocolate Peanut Butter -

Oh my, the ice cream is so creamy and the peanut butter comes in HUGE chunks :oP Needless to say I've had a few so far...

The second new item is Sea Salt & Black Pepper Flavoured Kettle Cooked Peanuts by President's Choice -

I like peanuts but I'm not a peanut 'fan'. That all changed when I took one taste of these! I warn you now that they are ADDICTIVE :o)

For our supper last night, DH and I did up pulled pork sandwiches. Why isn't there more pulled pork in our part of the world???? WHY? Since I'm such a generous person, I'm going to share my complex recipe with you. Pay close attention because you don't want to mess this up -

- one pork shoulder roast
- 1/4 cup orange marmalade
- 1 cup BBQ sauce

Are you still with me? LOL! We cook our pork in the slow cooker. It's put in the night before and set on the low setting. Once it's cooked through, take it out and start shredding it. Remove all the fat and juices. Put the shredded pork back in the slow cooker along with the other ingredients and keep on low or stay warm setting until you're ready to eat. You can separate the fat from the juice and add a bit of the juice if you want it moist. Yesterday we used Apple Butter BBQ sauce and it was delicious! Last month we made it when my parents were here and we used Diana's Maple BBQ sauce. What I love about the recipe is that you can use different BBQ sauces and therefore change it up :o)

For the finale DH made a Chocolate Cloud Cake -

OH-SO-GOOD! This is a flourless cake but rich in taste. We added whipped cream and fresh raspberries on top :oP

I hope I haven't overwhelmed you but I bet you're hungry now ;o) LOL!

Can't wait to try the pulled pork, sounds delicious. I will admit we get the single servings of the ice cream quite often. I am a hugh fan of the chocolate and rate all other chocolate ice cream by it.
Sound like a fun time was had.

I make pulled pork BBQ in the crockpot too and just use our favorite bottle bbq sauce...it comes out so good and moist! We have those single serving sizes of H. IC too, I have to buy it that way or I would use the pint size as a single serving!

Just packing a bag quickly and booking a flight ~ I'm on my way ~ sounds like the perfect breakfast!!!

valerie said...

You are a very bad girl! The cake looks wonderful and the pulled pork sounds great. I really need to give slow cooker cooking a try.

Myra said...

Yum - O! I have tried the Dulce La Leche single - my grocery store only has that and vanilla. I have to go take a look at that flourless cake recipe - it looks sinful!

Carol said...

Now that pork sounds like my kind of recipe--three ingredients!! Can't wait to try it. And, oh, that cake alone looks sinful, but with whipped cream and raspberries? I'm sure it was worth every single calorie :)

Gabi said...

YUMMMM!!!! I have to try out that cake.

mdgtjulie said...

Thanks a whole heck of a lot, lol. Even with your warning, I went on and now I really want some peanut butter chocolate ice cream. Or maybe vanilla with caramel syrup. YUM!!! The cake looks delicious too!! (Can you tell I have a sweet tooth!!)

And This Little Pig said...

Yes definitely hungry, I'd say send me a slice, but well you know! And diet out the window, sprouted wings, and flying high up in the sky!

Thanks for the warning but I had to look!! That ice cream looks yummy, I love peanut butter.

♥ Nia said...

yummy! I want a piece of that cake :p
I'm not sure if I've told before, a few months ago I found out what Peanut Butter taste like! Yes, that's not very usual around here but I looked it on the supermarket and found a jar to try (brand Skippy). Conclusion.. no one here likes it :p hahahah
I wanted to bake hershey kiss cookies but I had to give up on that :p It's funny because we know how Peanut Butter is so popular on that side of the pond!
hummmm... but that chocolate cloud recipe is calling my name ;)

Sylvia said...

Yum, the cake looks so good and one of the things I can always eat is bbq, so pulled pork sounds divine.

Karen said...

Melanie said...
