A Good Day For Pork and Pie!

Hello Readers,
The weatherman got it wrong for Saturday it was supposed to be cold and rainy, the day started off that way and then the sun came out. I took a nice long seven mile walk and enjoyed the crisp air, Fall foliage and sun. I then decided that I should fire up the charcoal one more time.

1 whole pork butt - bone in

simple seasonings - salt, cumin, oregano, garlic and pepper

rinse and pat dry pork and make small slits and add garlic

combine seasonings 

rub on all sides of pork

place pork in the crock pot and pour 1/2 cup of Pepsi over the pork - yes that's correct Pepsi!


cover with lid turn on low - I'll see this bad boy in 6 hours!

it's now 6 hours later

looking good and smelling great but I'm not done yet

the grill is ready for pork!


coals are ready to do their thing

Sadie my assistant will be keeping an eye on things

cover with lid for about an hour and a half

remove lid and look at what you have

the sugar in the Pepsi helps to give the pork great crust and color

I patiently let it cool for 20 minutes or so

 slice YUM!!!
Now if that doesn't grab ya I understand not everyone likes pork or meat..............how about this?
Apple Slab Pie! I will post more about this deliciousness later this week.
Have a great week! Thanks for coming by Decor & Harmony.

Fall Decorating

Hello Readers,
Last week I received the latest issue of Better Homes and Gardens in the mail as I thumbed through the pages I noticed something that I could do and it wouldn't cost me anything, I love projects like this.





decorating with leaves!
just keeping it real this is how my dining room usually looks
this could use a little color don't you think
I went outside and snipped a few trees and spruced up this planter and I also add a few knick-knacks
a table runner, candles and a lantern
I think it's beginning to look like Fall in here
look at those golden leaves I think its what my buffet needed, Fall leaves and a few clippings from my mum

okay there it is my Fall spruce up, I think the space looks so much better.......have you started Fall decorating yet?
