Tonight, using meat from a pork shoulder (picnic ham) (from the freezer) that I cook all day in a slow cooker, I made soft tacos of sorts. I basically used the meat (shredded) and stir fried it with garlic, onion, tomatillos, and spices in a cast iron pan. I mixed this with the rest of the leftover red beans and rice. I then heated a few flour torillas from the freezer and slightly rolled the meat mixture up in them. The boys loved them! L2 even ate two of them and asked for a third (although he forgot about wanting the 3rd one a few minutes later).
Using the picnic ham in this way worked out great. I have
All in all, a good meal made strictly from the pantry!
(Of course, a while later I was taking the rest of the meat out of the Crockpot and it slipped out of my hand. I spent the rest of the evening cleaning up grease off of the floor and cabinets...thankfully I have a couple of dogs and cats to employ for the clean-up duty! They thought it was a good too!! ;)
