Roasted Potatoes with Tomatoes, Basil, and Garlic
Bland. I left out the tomatoes because I didn't have any, and added salt & pepper and they just didn't have enough flavor. Even fresh basil & rosemary couldn't save this dish.

Best Spanish Rice
Good, but needs more onion and next time, I'd probably use 3/4 c of rice. We have a TON leftover! I added two cloves of crushed garlic when I was browning the rice - I just can't NOT add garlic. :)

Slow Cooker Carnitas
Pretty good - I made the rub + added 1 tsp of red pepper flakes to add some heat. I rubbed it and let it sit in the fridge overnight. I added a little more cumin, coriander, fresh garlic & red pepper flakes in the morning. I seared it before putting it in the crockpot. I put one small chopped onion on the bottom, then some soaked Ojo De Cabra beans, then the roast (which was about 2.75 lbs). About two hours into cooking I realized I forgot the bay leaves! and threw them in then. It cooked for about 6 1/2 hours and came out very tender, it was falling apart as I was trying to get it out of the crockpot! I think it's a great base recipe. I would liked to have added some chili powder but I'm out. The beans had a wonderful flavor from the rub. Next time, I think I might do what others suggested and cut it into smaller pieces and rub those down completely to get the flavor in a little deeper. I served it with the beans, Spanish rice, sour cream, salsa, queso fresco, avocado, and flour tortillas I have a ton of leftovers too that will make great burritos and sandwiches!
