Awesome Sauce

Today has been a good day! Do you wanna know why???? Well it doesn't really matter cause I'm going to tell you anyway :D I cooked today. And not just followed a recipe cooked but on my own!
I don't know if I've mentioned it before but my husband and I are poor, do I had to invent dinner with what I had and that was not a lot. So while I was looking online for a recipe that needed only what I had I decided that I needed to try something without the help from other people so I grabbed my pork chops (the only meat I had) and I used what I had in the fridge... BBQ sauce, ketchup, some hot mustard and soy sauce (I saw it used a lot in the online recipes) grabbed some leftover chili seasoning from the cupboard, added some spices that looked good and tossed it in the slow cooker on high for 4 hr. Now I told myself I wouldn't tell the Hubby anything untill he told me if he liked it or not (I didn't want to admit it was just me playing in the kitchen unless he liked it) and do you know what? He liked it, a lot! And I had enough pork on hand to make so he could bring some as his lunch :D (yay me)

I call this learning to cook :D Now tomorrow the Hubby and I agreed that we need to clean house and I will have to let you know how that works out, but we are trying to get the kitchen back in order and the den where we send most of our time that and I would like to get my bed fixed and the couches moved around but those might be more of a Sunday thing. And I have to work a meal plan and shopping list because I need to hit the stores here in the next couple of days (of course I will keep you updated with how that goes).
