Barbecue Pulled Pork Sandwiches
This week Jennifer has for us an instant pot recipe for us! BBQ pulled pork sandwiches! Jennifer says,
""ATTENTION INSTANT POT LOVERS!
I recently purchased my IP from an Amazon Deal of the Day and so happy I did! This was one of the first recipes I made and it was great. You could just as easily do this in a slow cooker if you sear the meat on the stove and reduce the sauce at the end in a pan. I would say slow for 8 hours should do.
It took me a bit longer than 5 minutes to sear the pork but I was fooling with it. If I just left it be, it might have been faster. I was just too excited!
Instead of the extra apple cider vinegar at the end, I used raspberry balsamic and WOW! It definitely kicked it up. But I like sweet and spicy, not smoky. I also used soft flour taco shells and the kids loved it, too. And because it's still 100 degrees in October, you don't have to heat up your kitchen with the oven. Win, win!
Try it, then post pictures! I can't wait to hear about it!"

Down Syndrome Awareness Month
October is Down Syndrome Awareness Month! This is a month dedicated to celebrate abilities and spread awareness about Down Syndrome. People with Down Syndrome have the same dreams as everyone else, it just may take them a little extra work to achieve them. The label “Down syndrome” is not meant to describe those with the condition as being “down” or delayed. Rather, like many medical conditions, it is named after physician Dr. John Down who described the condition. Too bad his last name wasn't Awesome! People might look differently at the syndrome.
David and Jenn's 7 year old daughter, Joyanna, was born with Down syndrome. She's a spit fire, full of sass and knows it! She's always been included in both General Education and Special Education classes with lots of friends. While it takes Joyanna (nickname BOO) extra time to reach milestones and complete daily tasks, she's doing it on her own time. Kind of like "Island Time" if you're familiar with the phrase! There are some specific characteristics that accompany Down syndrome including facial features, short stature, delayed speech, hypotonia (low muscle tone), heart defects, intellectual and developmental delays, and impulsivity. But one thing is for sure, there is nothing DOWN about her!
If you'd like more info about her or Down syndrome in general, please reach out! Bringing awareness is so important!!
From Our President
"Most of you may not know it, but I have a daughter with Down Syndrome. In decades past there were a lot of derogatory comments made toward those with Down Syndrome. Thankfully, times have changed. Awareness month...what does that mean? To be honest I don’t know what that means, but all I ask is that people continue to treat my daughter and anyone with Down Syndrome just as she is, no different than you would treat your kids. Please don’t feel sorry for our family or any other family. Times have changed so much for the better that everyone is accepted. Let’s all do our part to keep that going. Cheers!"
