Hello blog world! Long time no talk! I didn’t totally mean to leave you all hanging since…September 2014…whoops. I told y’all my morning sickness from my 1st trimester had me feeling too blahhh to blog, and that I would take a short break and come back. Well, after taking a few weeks off, I actually really enjoyed taking a break from blogging and even reading my regular blogs. Sometimes you just need to disconnect from technology and live in the real world for a while, ya know? I had all good intentions of returning after my morning sickness had passed, but then more and more time passed…still no blogging. And now after 9 months, I’ve finally got this sweet little nugget in my life.
So you can understand why I haven’t found time to blog since having my little man. I do miss it at times, but other times (especially now being a mom) I just can’t even bring myself to sit down at a computer screen at the end of a long exhausting day. This post does stir up something in me that makes me think mayyyybeeeee I might be back to blogging soon on a regular basis; if I can find the time. (gosh you blogger moms are rockstars!) Only time will tell!
Well, I recently had the opportunity to bring you guys a pretty sweet giveaway too great to pass up. I treated myself to some delicious food and desserts this holiday weekend so let’s Treat Yourself and talk Bar-B-Q sauce! (thanks for the link-up Becky!)
Did you know that May is national bbq month?! That makes sense to me. The weather is warming up, kids are out for summer, the sun stays out to play longer…making all of those a perfect combo for some bbq! Growing up in Kansas City, I had some gooooood bbq around me to satisfy whenever I craved it. (Hello Oklahoma Joe’s!) Now unfortunately, living in Montana makes it tricky to find a decent place with delicious bbq. So I’ve had to learn to just make my own meats and bbq sandwiches at home. Enter Stubb’s bar-b-q! Stubb’s has a variety of sauces, rubs, and marinades. I’ve tried a handful of their products in the past couple years, and I’ve even been to their restaurant down in Austin, TX about 3 years ago, and man oh man, was it good!
What I love best about Stubb’s products is that it contains no high fructose corn syrup, which is usually the 1st or 2nd ingredient in other bbq sauces. And though I’m not anti-gluten, all of their products are gluten free. And the Stubb’s brand is available in 85% of grocery stores nationwide, meaning almost anyone can enjoy them! I’ve even got a quick, easy, and delicious recipe for you too so you can enjoy Stubbs alongside me!
Easy BBQ Pork
1 large pork roast (I got a 4 pack from Costco), can also use 3 large chicken breasts
1 cup Stubbs bbq sauce (your flavor of choice), plus more if desired
Place pork roast in slow cooker and cook on low for 6-7 hours, or on high for 4-5 hours. Take roast out of slow cooker and shred with 2 forks.
Add in bbq sauce. Mix to combine.
Serve, and enjoy! Easy peasy! Not to mention delicious. And all of it takes minimal effort, which I’m all about these days with a newborn (well, 8 week old) around. You could even grab some buns and make bbq pork sandwiches. I did without the bun, considering we were out, served alongside some Brussels sprouts and mac & cheese. A perfect Memorial day dinner!
So now it’s your turn to be able to enjoy some great bbq! Two lucky winners will each receive 2 coupons for a free Stubbs product. All you have to do is comment below telling me what you’re looking most forward to about summer. Contest will end 5/30 at 11:59pm. Winners will be emailed.

Have a great rest of your week! I’m off to tend to baby Lando!
