Today, the husband is working a later shift, and little man and I are off to visit some family halfway between our two towns - at McDonald's none-the-less, not for the food, but for the playhouse.

So on to last night's meal, Iowa is the land of pork (and corn). Hog heaven. Since, we've got these little buggers running around everywhere, pork has a tendency to go on sale a lot. When I saw this pork roast on sale for $4.00 I knew it'd fit right in our dinner.
This crock pot meal is one the easiest ever, and in fact I believe I posted about it when I first started this blog, but it is worth it to post again.
It is that good.
We had it last night with twice baked potatoes and our-ever-so-faithful roasted garlic asparagus.
Crock pot BBQ Pork
pork roast or butt (I used a 4 lb. roast)
1 can diet soda
bbq sauce of your choice
seasoning of your choice (I used garlic salt and chili powder)
Cover roast in seasonings and place in crock pot. Pour in soda and drizzle with bbq sauce. Cook on low for 4-6 hours, until meat is tender and able to shred with fork. Serve on a kaiser roll.
Yum! This meat is also great as leftovers, as it just tastes better the next day. Trust me, you'll forget that you are eating a "butt".

This crust is SO GOOD. It gets nice and crispy, which reminds me so much of many restaurant pizzas...but right in my own home.
