The cooking segment is back! #yourewelcomekelly As you have seen from both Jenny and I this month has been a total food fest!!! So forcing ourselves to cook was a must and a struggle this week! Last week when we were supposed to cook we went out for a sushi date instead, so this week needed to happen! But we were smart…we cooked the comfiest food of alllll time…crock pot pork tenderloin with cabbage, carrots and onions!!! First off…nothing is easier than a crock pot meal and second of allllll……yummmmmmmmmm!!! Let me paint a picture of what my cooking fantasy is…Jenny and I jackass around, have so much fun, learn a new recipe and then we sit down with Brandon and enjoy an amazing little meal that we just prepared with love and healthy vibes. Now, let me just pop that bubble and tell you that that has literally NEVER happened and tonight was no exception. Let me paint the reality of cooking night. I had to work until 8, so Jenny had actually started hours before I got there. This is the scene I walked into at the Smith home.
Jenny was writing the blog you read yesterday. I was starving when I got off work so I stopped by Chickfila and got a salad and devoured it at their dining room table solo as soon as I walked though the door!
Brandon was glued to the Hurricanes game which he explained thoroughly how the points system works! #iunderstandhockey now #thanksbrandon
The house smelled farty but somehow yummy for sure…you know what I’m talking about right ladies…house full of stewing cabbage!!!! So how do you make this fall comfort food!? Here is your ingredient list:
1 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
1 cup water
1 tbsp. salt
1 tsp pepper
2 tsp paprika
2 lbs. pork tenderloin
1 onion chopped
4 carrots chopped
1 head of green cabbage
Put slow cooker on low, dump all veggies on the bottom, then lay the pork on top of that, then sprinkle all the seasonings and then add your wet ingredients and cook for 6-8 hours!!! Jenny literally did all the work here!
So what are the three best friends who anyone could ever have (did you see what I did there!?) to do while waiting for the pork to cook!? Well snuggle on the couch and act a fool of course. I used to spend endless hours with these two!!! This felt great and super duper comfy…the theme of the night!
Sooooo fun!!!! The three of us haven’t been in a room together for more than five minutes in ages and it was soooo great! We talked a lot about how hard it is to stay focused while losing weight…our major fall cravings, how mean your brain is at sabotaging a good food day and just struggles in general! Then we watched youtube videos and reenacted terrible commercials! We discussed if you could lose a pound every time you farted that all we would eat is beans for life!!! #meatballssssss And there was def a moment where we all broke out into “These Boots Were Made For Walking” which turned into a conversation about cassette tapes and Michael Bolton. Welcome to the land of ADD and 4 city!
Then the timer went off and it was time to sample! #ourfavoritepart #fattypatty’s
It looked amazeballs.
It was verrrry vinegar-ey so we added a cup of water to the recipe above. But it really grew on us and was so comfy and warm!
Is there anything better than cooking with friends!? I think not!!!! We hope you have a great day and if you are struggling to get back on track just know that we are too… but it is possible and it’s happening as we speak! #allthreemeatballsgetyourheadsinthegame
My dream came true the next day…what a lovely little meatball power lunch we had…we are both back and in the mother fuzzing game!!!
Love y’all!!! PS…Jenny and I both got new hair today! Thanks Natalie!!!!

1 1 tbsp. salt? – really 11 or is it just 1? sounds good and will definitely try it.
Just one!!! Haha sorry!
