January 18, 2011...first slow cooker meal of the new year and first time we've had guests over! Sadly, this is the first time we've been able to share one of our awesome meals with any of our friends. We invited the Dixon's over for another one of our favorites, Hoisin Pork Wraps.
It's a slow cooker so when I got home from work at 2, the house smelled INCREDIBLE!! It made for a very difficult 3 hours waiting for our guests to arrive and dig in. It's really a shame I can't somehow share the smell or taste of this meal. It. Is. Amazing!
Best part of the night was listening to my buddie Andy try and describe how good it was. Best he could think of was the dinner scene from "What About Bob". Yep...it was that good.
Kendra forking it out.
Pictures just don't do it justice. If you have a crock pot, please try this recipe. You will not be disappointed!
