Hey Gang! How was your weekend? I’m hoping that it was good and relaxing. Ours was good. A Friday night to relax, a Saturday of family time and a Sunday of worship and rest. Good stuff. So…all of that brings us back around to mmmMonday! I’m so glad that you stopped by to join us. Today we are talking leftovers…for tonight’s supper…me puttering around in the laundry room today and for those of you that follow me on Instagram…the lugging of the dresser from Friday. Good stuff. 😉
Yesterday, while we were at church…I had a pork roast bubblin’ in the ol’ Crock Pot. Then when we got home, (after a stop off at the grocery store for coleslaw…which ended up in a bunch of other stuff because we were all hungry) we had pulled pork. It was pretty tasty, if I do say so myself. That brings us to tonight’s mmmMonday! meal. Our roast that I used was pretty good sized…so there is plenty left for tonight’s PORK TACOS! Do you love ’em? We do. The Mr. and I were laughing this weekend about the quantity of Mexican food that we eat. We never tire of it. Pass the chips and salsa please.
Our pork tacos tonight will be pretty basic. Flour tortillas, pork, sour cream, lettuce, tomato, onion and cilantro. I like to whip up a little sour cream with lime juice…but the kiddie-poos aren’t too crazy about that. Oh…and cheese! How could I forget the cheese? Tonight it will be a little mixture of cheddar and mozzarella…just cause that is what I have on hand. We also have one last jar of last year’s homemade salsa that we are working on. I am very pleased that we had enough to give away and to last us through the winter. (Lord, please bless those tomato plants this year too. Okay…yes…I pray for our garden…and just maybe…last year I could be seen walking along the tomato plants…praying for them. “Ask and ye shall receive.”) 😉
So…I’m thinking about puttering around out in the laundry room today. I have a large metal rack out there…that things tend to pile up on. I’m wanting to revamp it a tad. I see all of these beautiful laundry rooms on our favorite Pinterest. Also…I never have made my coffee sack curtains. I may have to get on that too. After I made our drop cloth drapes…my poor little sewing machine tried to give up the ghost. I may see if the Mr. will oil her tonight and give her a tune up. I love our laundry room. It’s a good thing…I spend a big part of my life there.
Okay…okay…the lugging. If you follow me on Instagram…you probably remember the dresser that I was going to lug from one side of the family room to the other. Well…it’s done. One of my new…super sweet IG friends also emailed a printable to me and it’s framed and I’m displaying it on the dresser for now. I love it. Thank you, sweet friend. Don’t you love Instagram? I do. I have “met” so many neat people on there. One friend and I found that we have a common love for fall décor. We think that it’s fine that we are already stoked to decorate with pumpkins this year. 😉 Anyway…if you don’t follow me already…I am….yep…you guessed it, Along the Dirt Road. Come and join in on the fun!
Well…I’ve bent your ear long enough. (Strained your eyes…maybe?) I hope that you have a wonderful mmmMonday! Dirt Roaders. May the peace of God…that passes all understanding wrap right around your hearts today. He is amazing…He is love…and He is there for us.
I made curtains for my kitchen last Thursday with the very same burlap sack! Your tacos sounds yum, btw … come on supper time 😉
Angela…AWESOME! Have you blogged about them yet? I will have to check it out! Yes…I am trying to be good today…in case I “over-indulge” tonight. 😉 ~k.
Love pork tacos! Sometimes I bake up some pork nachos with leftover loin or Boston Butt. Yummy stuff! I have to re-invent leftovers around here since my husband is usually not a big fan of eating “the same thing we had last night”. Lol. Anyway…I’m glad you got that heavy piece of furniture moved. Looks lovely!
Lisa, Aren’t they just wonderful! I have made pork nachos before and we love them. I understand about the re-inventing. My Mr. doesn’t say much…but my kiddie-poos wrinkle their noses sometimes. No fuss…cause I’m not a momma that fixes seven different meals in one night…but I love to feed my family “happy food.” lol! I also get bored easily. (A character flaw…possibly. 😉 Thank you…thank you. It was so fun having you “along” for the moving adventure. btw: Your furniture is scrumptious looking! I want to paint my finds just like that…when I grow up in that dept.! 😉 ~k.
I totally understand about the “not fixing seven different meals in one night”… I always told my girls that the kitchen wasn’t a restaurant! I think my Mother always said “this isn’t a cafeteria!” Haha! And, I get bored easily too. Right now I am trying to think of what to make for dinner tonight. My youngest is coming over and always wants me to cook something “good!” 🙂 Thank you so much for the compliment on my furniture. I love painting it! The last piece sold before I even got it to the antique mall. Yay! Ok, I’m about to look in pantry and fridge, decide on something and probably head to the grocery store. Happy Tuesday! 🙂 ~lisa
Lisa…I hope that you had good “hunting” at the store. That is on my agenda…soon. Enjoy your time with your baby! I’m sure that whatever you decided will be scrumptious from the looks of your pics! Happy Tuesday…evening! 🙂 ~k.
