Pulled Pork Slider Recipe

Growing up I simply thought pulled pork sandwiches were made with pork and barbecue sauce. After many attempts of recreating that recipe, I have perfected the pulled pork slider. You do in fact use barbecue sauce, but the Worcestershire sauce and mustard were ingredients that I included to add even more flavor. I usually can't handle all of the flavor put in this recipe because I suffer from frequent heartburn. Luckily I set my table with Nexium® 24HR Capsules. Just one pill a day helps my acid reflux and allows me to enjoy my delicious recipes. I bought the 42 count capsules from Walmart and if you would like to sign up for savings on Nexium® 24HR Capsules click HERE! With this recipe and Nexium® 24HR Capsules my family and I are able to prepare for college football season. Being prepared helps me indulge in my favorite foods without the heartburn. These sliders can be made overnight or prepared early in the morning to serve during the fall season. If you are like my family and already watching the college football games, well here is a perfect recipe to share while tailgating:
Pulled Pork Sliders
Necessary: Slow Cooker
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 pork shoulder roast
1 cup barbecue sauce
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 packed brown sugar
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp chili powder
1 white onion, chopped
2 tsp of minced garlic
1 package of prepared buns
3 tbsp of melted butter

Prepare all of you ingredients and once you have everything measured out. Pour the vegetable oil on the bottom of your slow cooker and then place your pork shoulder into the slow cooker.
Next pour all of the ingredients into the slow cooker and mix them together. Put the lid on and cook you roast on high for 6 hours.
While your pork is roasting prepare you buns by cutting the entire loaf in half. On the cut side, brush the melted butter over each bun. Then toast the buns for 15 minutes at 150 degrees.
To shred the pork you must use two forks to separate the pork shoulder. You can use your hands but it gets extremely messy.
Spoon the shredded pork onto the prepared buns. You can now assemble your sliders:
I like to serve my sliders with a fresh Cole Slaw. You can eat the cole  slaw on the side or even put it in your slider.

Disneyland 2016 and #SoFabUOTR

Back in February I had bought my SoFabU on the Road tickets for October and that's when I started planning our trip down to LA. My idea was to hit Disneyland during Halloween time. In September I was gifted a Disneyland Ticket for my birthday and I knew we were definitely going the day after SoFabUOTR! We stayed in Anaheim and commuted to Long Beach for the blogging event. And while I was at the convention RJ and Solin toured Long Beach:
A few of my favorite things right now: Haribo gummy alphabet letters and this book: Going to Disneyland! Plus how rare is it to find pay phones?
Onward to Disneyland
The day before at SoFabU I had informed one of my managers to be at the Disneyland gate at 7:30 am. Then walk to the ropes at 8 am. And once the rope drops run to Peter Pan's Flight. This is the only way you will be able to ride Peter Pan's Flight with out a wait. The next morning when we hit the Peter Pan's line they were in line too. It was a great surprise! 
The we were able to ride Pinocchio, Snow White and Dumbo within ten minutes.
And Peter Pan himself was goofing around in Fantasyland:
While my husband ran to get Fast Passes for the Haunter Masion, Solin and I rode the tea cups and wondered around the Mad Hatter store. 
RJ was back in time to ride Alice in Wonderland
Then we walked onto It's a Small World:
By the time we were able to use our fast passes, the line had reach 2 hours. I am telling you, Please use the fast past system. We were able to walk up and give them our fast passes and get on the ride. No need to wait in a 2 hour line.
We were also able to have three fast passes at once. At this point we were about to ride Star Tours, when my husband had used his ticket to get a Big Thunder Mountain Fass Pass. And then I use my ticket to get a Space Mountain Fast Pass. Also another way to take advantage of the wait times is to use the ride switch pass... more on that later
Last year at Disneyland Solin did the same thing. She wants to climb Tarzan's Treehouse by herself:
To use the Ride Switch Pass at Disneyland you walk up to the cast member who is manning their station. You must have the other parent and child present. Then ask may I have a Ride Switch Pass. They now require the other parent to be there. This is the best way to utilize your time in the park when you have a toddler or infant.
While Solin napped we took our turns on Space Mountain and I was able to ride in the front. This is always a feat for me!
By the way Space Mountain has always taken great photos of me. Just check out this Meme HERE!
Their Halloween cups are Awesome:
I has bought Solin a Bantha Blue French Toast Breakfast in Tomorrowland. But she only wanted my Churro... so  we traded.
Gaston is a little intimidating:
After riding about twelve differnet rides we took the monorail to Downtown Disney where we had lunch at Earl of Sandwich and then walked back to our place for some down time.
We made it back to the Disneyland turn style after 6pm for the parade. The lights were starting to turn on and Disneyland magic was working: 
Another recommendation is to park your stroller and sit on the balcony near It's a Small World for the parade.
While watching the parade, Solin was so excited she was pulling my hair:
When you drive over 400 miles and your daughter still wants to ride the horsies:
It was a good day at Disneyland. I managed to escape with a bruise the size of a quarter and some missing hair. 
The next morning we scheduled a character breakfast at the Storeyteller's Cafe in Disney's California Grand Hotel. It was call Chip & Dale's Critter Breakfast. Each character was wonderful with Solin. She loved it so much she almost fell asleep in Chip's arms:
You can tell Chip & Dale apart by their nose and teeth!
