Our daughter has moved back home with us. She is not so happy with our “American” cooking. We eat lots of different stuff trying to keep our dinners interesting. But she seems to imagine a lot of gray food coming out of the kitchen. In order to make her happier with our dinner choices, I am trying to bring back some “oldies” that she may like.

Tonight’s dinner is a slow cooked pork shoulder or “Boston Butt.” We cook it in the slow cooker on Sunday. We plan on eating it Monday.

John shreds the pork and puts it under the broiler. I chop up some cabbage and prepare black beans. Each person makes their own tortilla with shredded pork, cabbage, beans, and toppings of cilanto, green onions and crema made wih yougurt, salt and cilantro. We are happy with our south of the border creation.
