Disneyland Dinner!!

So tonight we will be making cards that we will donate to a school in Sprinville. In return, Disneyland will give us a free day pass to thier park! We thought since we will all be getting together to make cards that we should also make Cafe Rio- something we've been wanted to do for a while. Here is the recipe for the meat and dressing.

"Just like Cafe Rio" Pork:
5-6 lb prk roast
1 Tbsp cumin
1 cup brown sugar
12 oz bottle La Victoria Taco sauce
20 oz bottle coke

Cook roast on low for 12 hours in crock pot with water added half way up roast. After 12 hours, drain water off roast and add remaining ingredients and continue cooking for 4 more hours. Then shred the meat and cook for 2 more hours.

"Just like Cafe Rio"
Creamy Ranch Dressing: 1 pkg dry Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing
1 cup mayo
1 cup shopped cilantro
2 cloves garlic
3 tomatillos (peel off paper) (found by the hot petters in the fresh produce)
1/3 cup buttermilk
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (more or less as desired)

Put all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth.

Pictures from the night:

I have to admit I was very impressed witht he creativity and card making skills our boys have. I think the others girls would agree...
