slow cooker shredded pork

On Friday Mr. Bejelly and I celebrated our 10th Wedding Anniversary by buying a chicken tractor and getting three hens.  I was ecstatic.  I know. I’m just not the kind of  girl who is big into  the pomp and circumstance that comes with a lot of  life’s celebrations . Wait. The Little’s birthday is an exception and I will be the happy mom rocking a pirate hat when he turns the ripe old age of 3 this summer.

Anyhow,   as we watched our girls cluck inside their chicken tractor I had a hard time wrapping my mind around the fact we have been married for a decade. A decade!   Where did the time go and more importantly, how did we not kill each other when we were learning the rules of laundry and how to load a dishwasher properly.

I’ve been so busy cooking that I seriously needed a break on this momentous day so I broke out my crockpot and put it to work so I could spend time watching the chickens with my family.  It was worth it and six hours later our bellies were filled to the brim with delicious slow cooker shredded pork goodness.

  1. Happy Anniversary.

    Had to look up what a chicken tractor was. Is that North-Western States lingo? While I’m not a back woods country girl, I’m also not a city girl, and I’ve never heard of this. We just call them coops down around Austin.

  2. Have just commenced on my paleo journey & what better way to start than with this delish slow cooked pork! Served with sweet potato, leek, garlic & coconut cream mash I cannot wait to try more:)
    Thank you so much!

  3. This dish was absolutely delicious!! My husband was even impressed 🙂 Thank you for sharing this recipe. It’s a keeper!!
