And the rain came pouring down, but not enough to slow My Farmer. By noon, the semi was hauling in corn, thus I reluctantly spent the afternoon in the kitchen preparing dinner. This farmer’s wife doesn’t always greet dinner duty with bells on.
Tonight’s rather simple dinner was delivered and served just as the skies opened up in a twilight rain which effectively sent the farmers home.
Meal 3: BBQ Pork Sandwiches, Sweet & Sour Vegetable Salad, & Wackie Cake w/ Strawberries
BBQ Pork Sandwiches (from allrecipes.com)
Toss pulled pork with your favorite bbq sauce before serving.
Sweet & Sour Vegetable Salad (from Taste of Home)
This makes a TON. Half the recipe and you’ll still eat from the bowl for a week. After a few days serving this as a side, we bring out the tortilla chips and use it as a great vegetable salsa.
Wackie Cake (from my mom. The best made from scratch chocolate recipe! So easy & moist!)
- 3 c. flour
- 2 c. sugar
- ½ c. cocoa
- 2 tsp. salt
- 2 tsp. soda
Combine the ingredients above in a large mixing bowl. Make three holes. In one put 2/3 c. salad oil, in the second put 2 tsp. vanilla, and in the third put 2 tsp. vinegar. Pour 2 c. water over all and mix until smooth.
Back at 350 degrees for 30 minutes in a greased and floured 9 x 13 pan. Top with chocolate frosting. Or in our case tonight, cool whip and strawberries.
