Sundays are Slow-Cooker Sundays at Teacher's Market. I post an easy recipe to help you out during those busy school nights ahead during the school year.
If you have a quick and easy recipe you'd like to share with other teachers, please leave the recipe in a comment below and I'll be happy to share it next week! Thanks!
Crock Pot Pulled Pork: Makes 10 servings
This recipe comes from Food.com and boy does it look easy and sounds great! It does take a long time to cook, however.
***4 lbs. Pork Roast (shoulder or butt)
***2 large onions
***1 cup ginger ale
***1 (18 ounce) bottle barbecue sauce (food.com recommends Sweet Baby Ray's)
***Barbecue Sauce for serving (optional)
1. Slice one onion and place in crock pot.
2. Put in the roast and cover with the other onion, sliced. Pour over the ginger ale. Cover and cook on low for about 12 hours.
3. Remove the meat, strain and save the onions. Discard all liquid. With 2 forks, shred the meat, discard any fat, bones or skin.
4. Return the shredded meat and onions to the Crock Pot, stir in the barbecue sauce. Continue to cook on low for another 4-6 hours.
5. Serve with hamburger buns or rolls and additional barbecue sauce.
Makes 10 servings. Leftovers freeze well.

Fashion Friday Giveaway: Dansko Shoes
I absolutely love Dansko Shoes. They are so comfortable and just my style! The shoes above are my very favorite pair of Dansko's that I purchased last Fall. I wear them a ton and are very comfortable. I receive lots of compliments on these shoes, too.
I know many teachers prefer Dansko shoes because they are so comfortable and are what teachers need with the demands of being on their feet all day.
Dansko shoes are on the expensive side, but with a little research, you can find them on discount at stores such as 6pm.com and sometimes on Amazon.com. Also, shop during Black Friday for great deals. So, I'll keep my eyes peeled in November for some good deals on Dansko shoes for you.
Also, be sure to enter their monthly shoe giveaways at the Dansko website. They run regular shoe giveaways at the Dansko website where there are usually around 10 winners for each giveaway. Pretty sweet.

Aren't these cute? They look great with everything---pants, dresses even jeans. Very versatile.

We were so excited when we got the opportunity to review the Big Joe Dorm Chair from Comfort Research.
We chose the fun Zebra Print Big Joe Chair and absolutely love it. It is so comfortable that I fell asleep in it while trying it out. It is definitely perfect as a reading chair for your students.
My children say it is so comfortable and soft. They absolutely love it. They fight often over who gets to sit in it. It's a great addition to our family room!
There's a pocket to hold a drink in it and another pocket to hold another small item. Just a fun reading and lounge chair for your reading nook in the classroom or family room/library at home.
We highly recommend this chair for your classroom or school library! Immediately, when I first saw this chair, I automatically thought what a perfect chair for your home or classroom library. Your students will love it.
