Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Gyros

I whole-heartedly believe that slow cookers are the best thing to use during the summer months.

Of course you can use them during the winter, too, to make yummy soups and stews and such… but during the summer is when mine gets the most use actually.

I love to be able to prep and throw dinner in the crock pot while I’m cooking breakfast for the kiddos and enjoying my morning coffee.

It just makes things so much simpler because then we can go out enjoy the beach or the playground or whatever and I’m not left checking my watch every 5 minutes worried about getting home in enough time to make dinner.

It’s already done.

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Gyros

Yesterday was supposed to be a beach day. The weather, so they say, was supposed to be amazing… sunny and 75 degrees.

Perfect.

We woke up ready to take on the day. I had coffee brewed, breakfast made, and all our beach gear packed and ready to go. Looked out the window and there was a slight haze and cloud cover.

Hmmm…. ok. Let’s see if it passes and then we’ll head to the beach then.

In the meantime, I started getting dinner ready knowing we would probably be at the beach later than originally planned.

After finishing these pulled pork gyros for dinner later, we saw that there was still cloud cover and it was only 65 degrees outside. We waited a few more hours and it didn’t look like the cloud cover was going anywhere.

So we made it a movie day instead.

Even though our beach day plans didn’t work out like we wanted, I at least had dinner made. Big plus in my book! And I still made time for my kiddos doing fun things so the day wasn’t a total loss.
