It was another busy Monday here that involved a lot of running around.

This weekend involved a lot of fun and a little less sleep.  So I crashed last night and was less than happy when my alarm went off this morning.  I started moving at 8am and just stopped to collapse on my couch around 9:30 tonight.  First up…after tea of course, the crockpot meal of the week.

I’ve been wanting to make this recipe from How Sweet Eats and just needed the time to pull it all together.  This morning, I put my meat and beer in the crockpot and then forgot all about it.

I had a session with my trainer.  She worked me hard!  And told me that I was strong.  Lifting weights and powering through burpees, I actually felt strong (Hello Bad Ass Warrior)!  Then I had a meeting to prepare for an upcoming presentation.  On my way home, I swung by the grocery store.  At which point, I remembered my pork.  I was afraid that I would walk in and find a tough piece of meat in the crockpot.  I grabbed the tongs and almost before I touched the meat, it crumbled apart into juicy goodness.  I added in the other ingredients that I had picked up at the grocery store.  Unfortunately, I didn’t have any chipotle seasoning, so I used some chipotle Tabasco instead of the red pepper flakes and chipotle seasonings.

The result…a powerful and unique chili!

The BOY (and of course Cooper) agreed!  Check out his cute little tongue!

We had our second tennis lesson tonight.  Although it reaffirmed that I am pretty bad at tennis, it was a lot of fun!  The BOY is thrilled to be getting in a workout and we are really trying to find a place to practice on the weekends that doesn’t cost a lot of money.  Maybe one of these days, the snow will melt and we can return to the outdoor tennis courts.  Although it’s not looking like that will happen any time soon as there is more snow moving in overnight.  Stay warm my friends and make some chili!!!

    I can’t get my kitties to eat from the table. One eats can cat food. The other only eats dry food.

  2. Goodness that looks delicious! Pinning now! How cute that kitty boo gets to have some, too!

  3. I saw a recipe for a crock pot beer chicken. I am going to give it a try. Wonder if it’s similar to the pork? The chili looks awesome.

  4. […] So I brought my Pulled Pork Chili to work to share with my coworkers.  They were big […]

  5. Oh, this sounds SO amazing! I love chili but I almost always make it with beef or turkey instead of pork. But I do love pork, so I know I’d love this. YUM!
