- 3 ounce pork loin
- 3.5 ounce twice baked potato (made with ff half and half and 1 teaspoon bacon bits and .5 cheddar cheese
- SAVORY monkey bread
Okay, the story with the monkey bread is a few years ago, my step-son asked if I had ever heard of it. I said no, but a quick search told me it was dough balls, rolled in butter, then rolled in a cinnamon-sugar mixture, and then put in a bundt pan and baked. The result? Deliciously caramelized cinnamon bread! You flip it over and its this mound of gooey goodness!
Well I thought, couldn’t you just make a savory version? I bought refrigerated biscuits (Pillsbury buttemilk biscuits that are 3 biscuits for 150 calories.
Okay, so now what to do with overcooked pork? Make barbecue! My grandpa made a North Carolina barbecue that was made from pork shoulder, slow cooked with vinegar, crushed red pepper and Tabasco. I just grabbed a few ingredients I had on hand and made a quicker version.
And added this:
I added crushed red pepper, a splash of balsamic vinegar and a splash of chicken broth.

- normal except for after breakfast, but I think my insulin pen malfunctioned. Usually it goes “click click click” while it goes in. This morning it was one giant CLICK. I assumed that the insulin was injected, but two hours after breakfast it was 291! No worries, after my workout it was normal again.
