Slow Cooker Pineapple Pork Roast
I don't know if it's fair to rate this, since I used the recs to add more items: thyme, whole cranberry jelly, crushed pinepples, a dash of cinnamon, red pepper flakes and soy sauce, sugar. Can't say I loved the outcome. it was a bit too tart for me - even with the sugar ( i didn't want to make it too sweet.) Also, I know that some don't believe it's possible to have dry pork roast from a crockpot (i didn't either), but lo and behold! DRY DRY pork roast. I had it bathing in those juices, and yet it was still dry! It was easy to pull apart but all the moisture was gone! I'd give my outcome a 2 star, but I can't rightfully give that to the recipe since I changed it so much. Just be aware!

Marinated Beet Salad
delicious and simple and fast. I ended up sauteeing the onions, as I'm not a super-fan of raw onions. I reduced the amount of sugar, as the onion added a nice sweet caramelized flavor. I served this on top of fresh spinach.
