There are so many aspects I love about gardening, but I have to say cleaning out the garden at the end of the season is not my favorite activity! The amount of snails, ear wigs and spiders I saw as I was pulling out the dead plants in my garden gave me the heebie-jeebies! I do NOT like insects, especially snails, so I was covered in head to toe with gloves, shoes and a jacket. It wasn’t until I stepped on a snail that I let out a blood curdling scream and decided I was done for the day. Before I left however, I had plenty of too-large zucchinis, peppers, tomatoes, carrots and broccoli.
So…what do you do with all of your end of year tomatoes and peppers? Pork Street Tacos is my answer! I have posted this recipe before, but I have taken a new picture and wanted to tantalize your eyes one more time with this amazing recipe. Our picture was so poor last time you probably skipped over this recipe not thinking it was anything special. However, this recipe is a MUST try! There are few recipes that I crave, more than I do these tacos. They are the perfect combination of salty, spicy and flavorful. Use up those tomatoes in your garden and enjoy a simple, crock pot dinner that your family is sure to love!
P.S. Does anyone know what to do with butternut squash?? I have 15 from my garden and I am at a loss of ideas of what to do with them–other than steam them and eat them with butter and brown sugar. I would LOVE any ideas or recipes you might have. Thanks 🙂
