SIMPLY SUNDAY-oops on Monday!

 Hi friends, 
I am a day late on my SIMPLY SUNDAY post but I had to share the good news about the FREE Big Shot or $100 in Product with signing up for Stampin' Up! yesterday.
I also was not feeling well yesterday, so here is my Simply Sunday Post on Monday!
If you all comment, I will keep this up for you on Sundays!

Last week I mentioned I was making a birthday dinner for my husband.
This is what I made

                      Dr. Pepper Spicy Shredded Pork served on Soft Flour Tortillas with Cole Slaw

and Roasted Smashed Potatoes

I love these Potatoes! I made them before from a recipe from the Pioneer Woman ( I love the Pioneer Woman) but this time I got the recipe from America's Test Kitchen. Here is the LINK and here is their photo. 

If you can not open the link to the America's Test Kitchen Potatos, HERE is the link to the Pioneer Woman Cooks Potato Recipe: http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2008/06/crash-hot-potatoes/  Here is her photo:

Here is the link for the Dr. Pepper Spicy Sredded Pork by the Pioneer Woman

The Pork was ok but I had tried a Pulled Pork Crock Pot Recipe a few weeks ago that I enjoyed more.
Here is that link from http://quick-dish.tablespoon.com/2011/05/18/3-ingredient-slow-cooker-pulled-pork/  I liked this one better but next time am going to combine the two recipes and roast the roast but with the soda and the bbq sauce rather than the peppers/sauce and rather than the crock pot. 

Please comment and let me know if you like my Simply Sunday Posts?
Also what do YOU like to make for special birthday dinners??
