Now that school's back in session, we've got a crazy busy schedule, with a lot of after school activities, and that means that there's not always a lot of time to cook dinner -- sound familiar? Now, I really love to cook, and I hate spending money on takeout, unless it's something I really want to try. So, I've pretty much mastered the art of cooking once and stretching the leftovers over several days. And, the leftover meals have to be different because the kids roll their eyes at the thought of the same meal over and over, but when you change it up a little, they love it.
I've put together four meals that you can get from one pork roast, and best of all, you can use your Crock-Pot the first time around.
I love making roasts in the slow cooker, and there really isn't a set recipe -- just plop the roast in, add garlic and onions, and add your favorite seasonings. I shared a basic recipe for Crock-Pot Pork Roast before, and this is what we use most often. So, on the first night, you can enjoy the roast with your favorite sides.
Roast pork with mashed sweet potatoes and green beans
For this particular meal, I mashed a few sweet potatoes and topped them with some feta cheese. I also added a side of green beans -- super simple!
