Meaty BBQ Meat

The leftover BBQ Pot Roast was better than the original! Pot roast is okay, it's just a bit....well pot roasty. But this leftover bbq stuff was banging. Next time I might just skip the pot roast part and go straight to bbq. I didn't do the onion or chili powder part and I suppose the taste depends on the quality of bbq sauce you get. I was overwhelmed by the choices at the store and had not tried any of the brands present (I'm a Dinosaur or Sweet Baby Ray's girl) so I texted Mr. Lawyer with a variety of choices including apple bourbon and smokey maple. Being a boy he picked the Bone Suckin' Sauce because it "sounded cool". It was good, not too spicy and a little bit sweet which is exactly how I like my bbq.
Tonight was also our building's Christmas party but nothing looked as appetizing as the bbq sandwiches we had waiting for us except for these delicious salads we snagged. One had a cranberry/goat cheese thing going on and the other a sweet onion dressing with almonds. Both were amazing.
