Recipe Overload

Working on updating my recipe section of the old home binder. I generally find recipes on and on pinterest. I tried to link these up to where they came from when I could remember it. But I thought I'd share, since I have them all typed up anyhow. These are all recipes I have actually tried out myself and Hubby has given the stamp of approval. Hope you enjoy!

Pulled Pork Sandwiches with Beer Cheese (link)
Leftover pulled pork
2 T. unsalted butter
2 T. flour
2/3 c. beer
1/3 c. milk
6 oz. freshly grated white cheddar cheese
8 slices whole grain bread
softened butter for spreading

To make the beer cheese sauce, heat a small saucepan over medium heat and add butter. Once sizzling, whisk in flour and stir for 1-2 minutes until golden and fragrant and bubbly. Add in beer and milk, whisking well to combine, then reduce heat to low and add cheese, stirring until totally melted and smooth. Keep over low heat and stir every few minutes while assembling sandwiches.

Heat an electric skillet or griddle over medium heat. Butter the outside sides of each slice of bread. Place 4 slices butter-side down on the skillet, then top with a few handfuls of pulled pork. Cover in cheese sauce, then top with the other slices of bread, butter-side up. I cooked these grilled cheeses a lot quicker than the others I usually make since the cheese is already melted. As long as the pork and cheese sauce is warm, cook these until each side is deeply golden and crispy, about 2-3 minutes.

Serves 4

Knit Baby Hat

Some day when I get around to it, maybe I'll post a tutorial on how to make a little knitted baby ski hat. Yup. Some day. For now, here are pictures of the most recent one. The griffins just make me happy.
