I am just Pennsylvania I know plenty of you will be cringing and scrunching your nose at the word "sauerkraut" but the trick to make it taste good is to drain it and rinse it in cold water at least 3-4 times. This gets out all of the awful bitterness and then it tastes amazing when you cook it with the pork!

I'm Pennsylvania dutch and still can't stand sauerkraut!!! I've tried it prepared all kinds of ways but I just can't do it. I have a pork loin in the crock pot though.

Well, guess who is the only one who got up? That's right...the person who didn't want to go shopping....

I just told her that I was leaving in 30 minutes...with or without her...you should have seen the look when I got to the without her part...

whew...somebody is gonna catch one in a few minutes...hehe....

You better be nice!! It's a little cold to be sleeping in the dog house.
