4 lbs. Boneless Pork Roast
40 oz. tomato sauce
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
4 cups Dr. Pepper
3 tsp. garlic powder
4 tsp. cumin
3 tsp. molasses

Mix garlic powder, cumin, molasses, tomato sauce, brown sugar, and Dr. Pepper in a large bowl. Pour mixture over pork roast and cook in crock pot on low for 6-7 hours. Shred meat, return to pot and cook 1 hour in the sauce on low. Keep warm until ready to serve. Serve in tortillas. Garnish with shredded cheese, lettuce and sour cream.

Tuesday - Colorful Chicken and Rice (Gayla)

1 cup uncooked rice
2 boneless chicken breasts
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can cream of chicken soup

1/2 teaspoon paprika

Any or all of these vegetables can be added:
1 large carrot, sliced into pennies
1 cup of fresh cut-up green beans
1 medium bell pepper, chopped
1 can of corn, drained

Place rice in bottom of crock pot. Pour water over rice. Mix canned soups and dry soup mix in a bowl and pour over rice. Add chopped veggies. Place chicken on top. Sprinkle with paprika. Cook on low for 3-4 hours.

Wednesday - Cheese Filled Jumbo Shells (thanks to Hilary for sharing this one)

Fill each shell with about 2 Tbs. mixture. Arrange shells in tight rows. Spread remaining sauce over shells. Sprinkle with additional parmesan or mozzarella cheese, if desired. Cover with foil. Bake 35 minutes or until hot and bubbly.
