We are slowly getting out for underneath the boxes. Half of our stuff never got unpacked in the townhouse, because we knew we were moving within 9 months. It is nice to find some of this stuff again! My in laws get here in a couple days, so there is still lots that needs to be done.
I made this pizza before we moved. It was a clean out the freezer meal. I froze the leftovers when I made Pork Carnitas. I also had a couple balls of pizza dough in the freezer. I often make a big batch of dough, then wrap up balls of it, and freeze for easy use later. We only moved a couple blocks away, but I still felt the need to clean out the freezer. Not sure why, but just go with me here.
I used the salsa I had in the fridge for the sauce, and kept it pretty basic. Meat, cheese, and sauce. BUT, I topped with guacamole! You really can’t have Mexican food of any kind without guacamole, in my opinion. I could probably find a way to justify avocados with every meal though
Summer is here! Yesterday we even went to the beach. There is a state park about 10 minutes away from where we live that has a nice beach. The kids played in the sand, played on the playground, and enjoyed the water. I am looking forward to more days like this as the summer goes by. Unfortunately, I think they will be few and far between. I can’t believe how full our calendar is this summer. We were supposed to move this weekend, but that has been pushed back a couple weeks. I already had a great line-up of guest posters set up, so for the next couple weeks I will be featuring some of my favorite bloggers.
I am also in the process of setting up a bake sale auction to help raise money for the High Park Fire victims in Fort Collins. The auction will be on July 8th. I have 25+ amazing bloggers donating some great items for you to bid on. I also have some great raffle prizes! Le Creuset, Green Mountain Coffee, Kerrygold Cheese…… Mark your calendars and make sure to come back on the 8th!! If you are interested in donating, let me know, I still have a couple slots left.
I can’t leave you empty handed before I go! I have Pork Carnitas! These are perfect for summer. They are made in the crock pot. You might think that is strange for summer, but think about it. No oven, gives off very little heat, you get to enjoy the beach while dinner cooks? Sounds like a win to me. So go pour yourself a drink, and have these for dinner
A friend sent me this recipe, that she got from a friend, so I have no idea what the source is. You can serve these with whatever toppings you like. I did traditional taco toppings: cheese, tomatoes, lettuce, guacamole etc. I also have plans for the leftovers, so stay tuned.
