    Try making some Pork Carnitas - he will change his tune on pork. They are so yummy!

    I think the main reason why he doesn't like it is because he didn't grow up eating it, and his previous girlfriend was vegetarian so they didn't eat it either. He needs to try my brother's pork loin too, that was amazing. Carnitas would be a nice change from beef tacos and beef and bean burritos.

    Agreed on the carnitas! Yummy!
    My DH said he didn't like a lot of things when I met him (mushrooms, sushi, avocado, artichoke, port, etc). He eats them all now. Just took some good cooking (my dad's, not mine) to get him to change his tune. Pork chops are still not his favorite but most other pork he likes.
    We all love carnitas. I wish I had a good recipe for it. Every one I've tried didn't have the right flavor.

    I made some glazed pork chops the other night, and my husband went back for more!! I got the recipe from Pintrest, it was for 4 thick pork chops. 1/4 c brown sugar, 1/2 tsp cayenne powder, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, 1/2 tsp paprika, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp black pepper. I mixed all the ingredients together then patted it onto all sides of the pork chops, then cooked them in the skillet until done. It had a little bit of spice, but not enough that the kids couldn't eat it.

    It has got flowers, but is large. I had thought to dig it up and transplant it and prune it back. I don't need the currants anyhow, but it's in a location that it will get shaded out soon. Will this be okay?

    Google term "leather britches". There's enough work out here, don't make any more for yourself than you have to!

    If you think it will thirve there, go ahead. The shade will keep it from being stressed to bad after the transfer, but will it have enough sun to thrive and produce in the future?
