Weeknight Dinners

Slowcooker BBQ Pork Sammies

It’s Sunday Funday! This morning we had some fun family time mini golfing at Vitense Golfland. Truly, this place is made for kids who want to mini-golf but still have a ton of energy to “do-stuff-besides-golf.” It’s been ranked nationally, and is the number one place in Wisconsin to mini golf.

When I say it’s made for kids, I mean every other hole has a slide (for big kids, too), or an activity of some sort; rocking motorcycles, zip lines, light house climbing tower, giant Giraffe, climbing walls, bridges, you name it. Oh, and having your ball roll into the water, don’t worry, it’s meant to. Who doesn’t LOVE splashing in the water to fetch the ball?

My kids love to mini golf, but their attention span is about 1 putt, then on to something else. Vitense nails family mini golfing.

If it’s cold, don’t worry, the indoor mini golf is even more impressive than the outdoor. It’s a full on replica of Madison landmarks; UW Campus, State Street, Governors Mansion, State Capitol, lakes, Men’s basketball, the Dance County Airport, Wiener mobile (that you can sit in and drive), hot dog slide and a few kids games with tokens.

I bet you didn’t think I was going to fill your head with thoughts of mini golf, did ya?

On to the recipe for your “Meaty Monday” — this IS WISCONSIN, after all.

Crockpot BBQ Pork

Ingredients

  • 2 – 2.5 lbs. boneless pork loin
  • 1/2 onion sliced
  • 1 Tbsp paprika
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 16 oz. bottle BBQ sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
  • 1/2 cup water

Directions

  1. Add all ingredients to the slow cooker.
  2. Cook on medium for 6 hours or low for 8-10 hours.
  3. Shred and enjoy!

Nut-free buns for this would be anything made by Kings Hawaiian. After speaking with them last year, their stuff is made in a dedicated nut-free facility. And they’re pretty good tasting. Not the lowest calorie count for a bun, but it’s a bun.

Sides for tomorrow, I’m not 100% sure what I’m going to do yet. I’ll probably do something easy like a Steamfresh bag of green beans or peas seasoned with Season Salt and a little butter and a quick coleslaw (pre-chopped bag) with dressing.

Hope you have a great week – I’ll post a pic of this meal once I make it tomorrow. The rest of the week’s meals can be found on my Instagram at:

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your Sunday night.

***And yes, Milwaukee area friends, this attraction is worth the drive. You could spend a day here at Vitense between the indoor restaurants, big kid games, mini golf, arcade and heated driving range, you’ll be set for a minimum of 4 hours. Did I mention there’s also a movie theater down the road from this place? Nice little get-away, especially for cooler weather months.
