I’m glad I got y’all to keep me up to date on important dates and such because if it wasn’t for you, I’d miss half of the big food events in any given year. Today’s example is Vicky, who informed me that there was a big football game this weekend when she asked me what I was making for it. I made a few phone calls and lo and behold, found out that it’s the Super Bowl!
Now don’t get me wrong, I know exactly what the super bowl is. It’s that thing that happens that has all the neat commercials. The cool thing is that you don’t have to actually watch and wait on the commercial breaks nowadays because you can just get up the next morning, check out the ones getting the most buzz on the web, and go watch them on Youtube! I love technology.
So thanks to Vicky on Facebook, I’m going to be bringing you game day recipes all week long, beginning with these great Pulled Pork Sliders.
The makings of these pork sliders are what make them so good. Slow cooked Southern Style pulled pork bbq is made overnight in your slow cooker (and so very easy!). Then we make Jordan Rolls (don’t freak out if you have never made yeast rolls, you CAN do it and I show you how) and top them with a little vinegar slaw. To streamline the slaw, I bought the bag of pre-shredded cabbage (which had some pretty carrots in it for color) and just added in the rest of my ingredients.
The best part is that the recipes and step by step photos are already here on Southernplate.com.
Just visit the posts below and use that handy print button at the bottom of each to print out the recipe.
I’ll be back tomorrow with more great recipes you can whip up in a jif while you’re watching all those great commercials this weekend!

What became of our Pork Slider Models?
One of the questions I get asked the most is from folks wanting to know what I do with all the food I cook here on SouthernPlate.com. Well thats the easy part, I feed people! Often times when you see a big spread it is from one of our Sunday dinners and already eaten and gone by the time I post it. Today I had these made by nine thirty this morning with plenty of fixin’s leftover to make more for our supper tonight. So I made a phone call to my husband first, who was too busy with work to come pick them up. My second phone call hit pay dirt when my dad answered and said he was near my house and on his way to an office of folks he works with. He swung by and picked them up to take to their new home
Here they are, about to get packed up for their new home…
So somebody is getting a little snack courtesy of me, you, Southern Plate, and Vicky reminding me that the Super Bowl is this weekend.
Today, instead of a quote I have a cute poem I found this past weekend. It’s just precious and brings a smile to my face every time I recite it.
If birds have little birds
and fish have little fishes
Why can’t sinks have little sinks
Instead of dirty dishes?
My friend, Jyl wrote a post on her blog about the Legend of Trail Trees. I’d never heard of these before and found the post fascinating! Click here if you’d like to read it. Her post is of special interest to those of us with Native American ancestry, boy scout roots, or dreams of someday being McGyver when we grow up Surprisingly, I actually fit all three of those criteria, but thats a story for another day…
