3 Tbsp coconut oil

    Yikes. Weekly Menu week 2 at Casa LeGrand update.
    The Chili cilantro lime crock pot chicken was a FAIL. Apparently it’s not so wise to cook a chicken in the crock pot for 6 hours! Yikes….
    The Pork with Squishy, Squashy apples needs to be in the oven for a LONG time. I added 30 minutes to the 50 mins suggested and it is still REALLY pink inside. Not edible for dinnertime. Bummer.

    One last update: cooked the pork roast longer last night and it was true yum when done. I’d say cook time more like 90 minutes and definitely go by meat thermometer temp 160. Enjoy!
