Pulled pork - my first attempt.

During my travels in America and Mexico I came across pulled pork on numerous occasions, it's something that I haven't seen much of in Scotland and certainly not in Aberdeen - which is 20 years behind every where else in the foodie world!
After searching online for recipes of which there are a lot, I went for a cross between a traditional pulled pork recipe and a cochninita pibil recipe from mexico.
The one thing I did notice was that these recipes use cuts of meat called pork butt which translates to pork shoulder in Scottish - something I found strange since shoulder and arse are no where near each other!
The pork was bought from Andrew Gordon Butchers and it was some hunk of meat!

Once the meat was cooked I decided to stick with the more mexican serving and we had tortillas, salsa, guacamole, sour cream and cheese - it was delicious even if I do say so myself.

I became a Mrs and went away for 4 weeks!

Well I have finally grown up and became a married woman! My husband and I jetted off for a 4 week trip to Seattle, Alaska, Canada and then 2 weeks lying on the beach in Mexico, where we ate too much food and drank a shit load!

But now I am back to reality with a bump, the holiday clothes are washed and ironed and the grass has been cut! So I promise to update my blog soon and to start writing a bit more regularly now that I don't have wedding things to be doing!
