Happy Labor Day! Are you enjoying your weekend? I’ve been so busy this weekend that I almost feel like I need a weekend after this weekend! It’s a good thing I only have four work days this week. I have a feeling that next weekend will be very similar.
Peach season is rockin’ and rollin’ here in Colorado. There are fruit stands on almost every corner with loads of freshly picked peaches. These peaches are absolutely divine by themselves, but I have food A.D.D. and wanted to try cooking with them too. Something so deliciously sweet needs something smokey and salty to balance everything out, don’t you think? What a perfect opportunity to slow-roast some pork shoulder.
*drool* Okay, I confess… I’ll use any excuse to make slow-roasted pulled pork. You really don’t have to twist my arm there. I know this sounds a bit odd, but keep an adventurous mind here folks. The combination of these savory morsels alongside perfectly juicy peaches will leave you with a mouthful of heaven my friends.
I added some cilantro for some brightness and a bit of shredded cheddar to bind everything together (Chedda’ makes everything betta’). I served mine with BBQ sauce on the side, which I personally enjoyed but Mister was mowing these down without any sauce. I must have done something right. I love it when I do that.
