Before you read this post, you must first read the Carnitas post over at Four Squares . You’ll appreciate this post much better if you do. I’ll wait for you, so go ahead and read Duky’s post. Hummm, deee-dummm, twiddle thumbs…dum..dum…hmmm.
Good you’re back! Ok, here is my version of Carnitas. First buy 7 pounds of pork shoulder with the great BIG bone in it. Why? Because you can’t find one without the bone. Maybe you should send your husband, so you can blame him. Why 7 pounds? Because.
I should have said first you need to find a really good looking man to marry, who will start cooking meals before you even ask. My Knight in Shining Armor prepared the meat and started cooking before I even came down for church, Sunday morning. Even though, I messed up and bought the pork with the great big bone in it, he let me have some of the Carnitas. 🙂
See husband cook? Good husband.
I am not going to bore you with extra pictures. You can view what this dinner looks like over at Duck Soup. She has wonderful pictures to share.
Next step is to let it cook a really long time. We, uh I mean hubby, ended up putting the meat in the micowave to sit while we were at church. It was still warm when we got home and he finished cooking it. What did I do? I set the table.
After eating such a fine lunch, you send your hard working husband up to the bedroom to have some quiet time, while you clean. This is when you notice that there is lots of yummy Carnita left, because your silly children refused to eat it. Too bad for them, yeah for the parents. Then you get up from you chair, and start to clean the kitchen. WHAT A MESS!! Husband has used all pans, utensils, whatever in the entire kitchen. No problem if you can turn into June. Need to know how to turn into June? Go here.
See Wife in pearls and an apron? Good wife!
Now you have the power to scrub the kitchen clean. When you come to the last cast iron skillet, you must take a picture of yourself with the hand knitted prize of all prize, wash cloth. Although you will not look like a slob, because you are June, you will resolve to go on a diet…tomorrow.
See friend use washcloth? Good friend.
Enjoy the clean kitchen and go shopping without the kids. You have earned it, after all you did clean up the mess your husband made. What? Why didn’t this June cook the meal? This June is no sissy, when the husband wants to cook, she lets him. 🙂
