Carnitas!!!

Who doesn’t love taco night?!  Especially Taco Tuesday!

In an attempt to keep dinners simple, but new this week, we made 2 Ingredient Pork Carnitas.  Very similar to 2 Ingredient Chicken, just with pork.

The grill has taken over most of our meals this week…woo hoo…but Sunday, I still pulled out the crockpot.  Great for hearty fall meals but also awesome for warm days that you don’t want to turn on your oven.

Tuesday night, Cooper was super into our dinner…

We made tacos on Tuesday, and I had leftovers for lunch today.  Both were fantastic, which makes this a good make ahead option!

And for dessert…the BOY and I made S’mores Ice Cream!

Which may not look that awesome in this picture but is highly addictive!

Which we noted as we ate it out of the container with a shared spoon and covered in whipped cream tonight : )

 

2 Ingredient Pork Carnitas

~2 lbs Pork (the BOY picked out ‘center’)
