    "Kids are super easy. It’s being an adult that’s hard." @girlshbo @lenadunham This was taken one year ago. It's hard to believe that she was so little. At 2.5 months old, I felt like I had already known her for years. Yet, I still had no idea what I was doing. I was a new mother, and I felt completely on my own. I told myself to take it day by day, and so I did. Somehow, she and I made it through and although she's still so young, our bond today is so unbelievably strong. 
If it's not yet apparent, I'm in an extraordinarily sentimental mood. This morning I found a notebook that I had purchased when @omgkersh and I were seriously considering adoption. I was planning on detailing our journey for our future child. Looking at the date of the receipt, it read 02/25/15. Little did I know that exactly one year later, my daughter would be born on 02/25/16. 
I truly believe that we are constantly being shown signs, we just don't always pay attention. I view what happened today as a reminder to stay strong during times of uncertainty. Things usually work out for the better. I just need to have faith.

tres verdes pulled pork

Roast - 7Recently, we have embraced a new tradition in our home where every Sunday my husband will make a meal in the slow cooker. Prior to this, he maybe cooked twice a year. That’s if I was lucky. In preparing a weekly roast that lasts several days, it takes much stress off of me regarding mealtimes during the week. What a treat it has been!

This recipe is entitled Tres Verdes due to the green chilies, tomatillo salsa, and green onion. While we had the pork shoulder and slow cooker, we were missing these three key green ingredients. What we ended up using was one Spanish onion. I suppose what Geoffrey then made for us was Uno Blanco Pulled Pork. Regardless, it was delicious! Here is the original recipe for three green pulled pork.

Tres Verdes Pulled Pork

Roast - 1Ingredients

2 tbsp chili powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp cayenne powder
1/2 tsp salt
3 lbs boneless pork shoulder roast
1 1/3 cups chicken broth
3 tbsp white vinegar
1 cup tomatillo salsa
1 can diced green chilies
1/3 cup chopped green onion

Steps

Roast - 21. Combine first 5 ingredients in a small bowl. Rub over roast. Place roast in slow cooker.

2. Stir broth and vinegar in small bowl. Pour over roast. Cook, covered, on high for 4 1/2 to 5 hours.

Roast - 53. Transfer roast to large plate. Shred pork with two forks. Remove and discard any visible fat. Skim and discard fat from cooking liquid. Return pork to cooking liquid. Add remaining 3 ingredients. Stir. Cook, covered on high for about 20 minutes until heated through.

Roast - 64. Enjoy!
