Timeline of a Meal

7:35 am – Take pork roast, fresh (not hard) apple cider, one dark beer, and one apple out of the fridge.
7:37 am – Get out the big damn slow cooker
7:40 am – quarter & core the apple
7:42 am – Put everything in the slow cooker, set to high for 6 hours
1:30 pm – clean 1lb fingerling potatoes
1:35 pm – clean and slice in half 1/2 lb Carrots
1:40 pm – clean and chop up lb sunchokes
1:50 pm – throw all that in the slow cooker with the roast
1:52 pm – for the hell of it, add in about 1 tbl fresh chopped ginger
1:55 pm – half a large onion in quarters? Sure, let’s add that too
1:57 pm – Set to cook on High for 4 more hours
5:50 pm – Pull it all out of the liquid, separating the meat from the veg
5:55 pm – Serve with the cooking liquid as a sauce or gravy. Salt to taste

The meat just falls off the bone, and the veg is JUST RIGHT. Oh and the flavor? Lovely stuff.

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.
