Easy Crockpot Pulled Pork

I have always enjoyed having friends and family over, it just makes meals that much better. I had a friend over Friday night after work to catch up. Usually, weeknights can be  tough to get dinner on the table, let alone have friends comes the crockpot! Whoever invented them made life a lot easier. I was able to buy all of the ingredients in advance and just throw them in the crockpot in the morning, allowing it to do all of the cooking while we were all working. By the time our work day was over and my friend came over the house smelled delicious and the pork was nice and tender. This definitely made weeknight meals and entertaining a lot easier and allowed us to just kick back and enjoy our company instead of fussing the kitchen. I made a smaller cut of meat and still had extra left over for lunch the next day!
