Throw it in the Crock Pot :: Parmesan Honey Pork Roast

Sunday's in the Herre Home is day of relaxation, for it is said that it is the day of rest.
As Adam and I came back from church, he says to me that he just wants to have a chill Sunday, and since we just bought a pork loin roast, he wanted us to just throw that in the slow cooker and snuggle today.
Relaxing and kicking back, I wanted to do something different with my pork roast.  Normally, the brown sugar, honey, and garlic recipe from my Momma is what I use, but I decide to google different recipes.  I came across Leigh Anne's recipe at Your Homebased Mom, for her Slow Cooker Parmesan Honey Roast.  As y'all know, I like to take recipes and put my own little twist on it, so that is exactly what I did!  It looked delish and I knew that we had to try, and share with you!

It warms the whole house.  Once you put this in the crock pot, y'all's house with start filling with wonderful smells.  After about 5 1/2 hours, Adam and I decided to pair our dinner with my Mom's Rosemary Garlic Potatoes, and a side of veggies!  With the remaining liquid, I just put it on top of the roast, and had a little extra on the side for some dipping sauce.

450 degree oven, 10-15 minutes, then flip potatoes for another 10-15 minutes.

Throw this in the crock pot, sit back, relax and watch a movie, while your yummy food is cooking away.  After y'all try it, tell me what you think?  What changes you made, what you paired it with.

Have a blessed Sunday!

Paper SkyScraper in the Queen City

Big News, y'all!  I got a "big girl" job, and Team Herre is MOVING!
There will be a post later about that, and what I will be doing.  But, because of this, of course I had to go out and do a little shopping, especially in the Queen City before we leave.

It was a long day, so as any person would want in order to balance out their week, we are in the same boat, so Be Yoga Carmel was the spot for me, with the most amazing yoga instructor, Ashley.  She has a way of strengthening who you are as a person and it feels so good when we am done. (it also helps that I have been getting some top abs!)

Afterwards, I was out with some amazing people eating at a fabulous restaurant called, Cantina 1151, it was so good - you have to go. And I was told about this little knick knack store called, Paper Skyscraper, it was the CUTEST!

Paper Skyscraper is the PERFECT gift store,no matter what the occasion is, they have whatever you want or need.  Their stationary choices are outstanding, their frames are super unique, candles/scents/lotions are great, and they have so much more!

I found a few things that I loved and HAD to get!  One was a gift for Adam and I, for us as a couple.

It is one of those envelope seals, that people used back when snail mail was popular.  This is a letter "H" seal.  All you do is melt some wax, put it over the envelope and then press the letter on it.  I'll post whenever we use it, we are going to wait for when we move! 

Knowing that ladies have a good amount of jewelry, I have never had a good place to put my rings, until I found a ring holder at Paper Skyscraper and it is the coolest thing ever.

This funny Office Notepad is the perfect assets for my new job. I work with some amazing people, who are funny, believe in a wonderful work environment, and importance of a team.

After my arms piled up I knew there was something else that I needed to start off my new job in style, a frame.  Yes, guys, a frame.  I want my desk to be black, white and gold. So, out of luck, I found the cutest gold frame, that is super unique and good quality.

And lastly, y'all know my obsession with candles and yummy smelling stuff, so I had to get a candle and by far, it is my favorite scent ever!

Paper Skyscraper is amazing, guys! Check it out, off of East Boulevard, Charlotte! (PS - it is dog friendly)
