Easy Crockpot Mesquite BBQ Pork Roast.

Okay, so we totally just had the best dinner... ever. Or at least the best dinner we've made at home for a VERY long time. I'm not sure what was my favorite part -- the fact that it was so easy or the fact that it was so cheap?



I'm going to expand on these thoughts so when I quickly forget this moment, hopefully I can remind myself here. I get bored with cooking at home pretty fast because it can really get monotonous. Also, who doesn't like propping their feet up and having someone else cook for you? But thanks to the crock pot, we can eat at home for cheap, having something delicious, AND feel like someone else did all the cooking. Nice, eh? Hyvee just had a sale on their Hormel Pork Center Cut Loin Filet - it's usually $9.99 for over 1.5 lbs - and on sale it was B1G1 free. (Which is a great deal!!!) So tonight I cooked the Mesquite Barbeque one for the first time and as you can tell it was a huge hit.

Ingredients:
-Hormel Pork Center Cut Loin Filet (paid: $4.99)…

Crunch time!

It's funny how I find a million things to do instead of doing the time-sensitive tasks that need to be completed. My semester is finishing up which almost always means final paper writing time and this year is no exception. In the next 3-4 weeks I have five major papers to start and finish and instead of working towards completing those or any other final assignments, I am printing coupons for groceries, working out, checking out a million Cd's at the library, doing various wedding plans, etc.

Honestly, it will be a miracle if I get everything done this semester because I have no motivation for school anymore. Then there is the graduation ceremony just before the wedding -- the wedding -- our honeymoon -- and then I have a bunch of summer classes to complete before I am FINALLY done with my Bachelor's requirements. So unfortunately, I won't be able to really relax until July 29th! But the payoff will be great.

Another big thing coming up on the horizon is our lease. Ou…
