Hormel gave me a chance

I have a confession. I wanted to blog every day in November. I had the blogs in mind and the pictures loaded, but as it turns out, I can't have nice things.

About two weeks ago my computer, which up until this point had been running hot, decided to completely die on me. Kaput...DIE. While my crackberry allowed me to read emails and look online, doing the whole picture uploading, blogging thing just wasn't in the cards.

I now have a net book, thanks to some cupcake sales, but I am unable to use my xD card from my camera to load pics. It's always something.

The hubs and I recently attended a Chiefs football game and provided the tailgating food. If you have ever been to a football game in Kansas City, you will know that tailgating is often the best part. Thank you to Hormel for helping me host a great pregame party!

We made:

It was a fantastic party with good friends and good food. Thank you, Hormel!

This is a sponsored post. I was provided coupons and a stipend to assist in my meal. All opinions are my own.

Pulled Pork Sandwiches

Season 3 pounds of pork tenderloin (roughly 2) with salt and pepper and place in a crock pot. Cover with 2 cups root beer. Let slow cook overnight (or 8 hours) on low. After 8 hours, remove the tenderloin to a bowl and discard the rootbeer.

Shred the tenderloin with two forks and return to the crockpot. Add a bottle of barbeque sauce (we used Sweet Baby Ray's) and let simmer on low for another hour.

Serve on a bun with some cole slaw and pickles. Enjoy!
