An excellent way to use leftover pulled pork is to make a BBQ Baked Stuffed Potato.
I posted a recipe a few days ago for Crock-Pot BBQ Pulled Pork. When making Pulled Pork, my family always requests this delicious BBQ Baked Stuffed Potatoes. They are incredibly filling and make an entire meal by themselves. They include all of our family’s favorite foods like BBQ pulled pork, potatoes, cheese, BBQ sauce, and ranch dressing. Try also topping these potatoes with bacon, chives, or sour cream.
Life Can Get Busy
These potatoes remind me of how I can get so busy in my life by filling every minute of the day. Often we fill our lives up with activities and then run out of time for the thing that is the most important, which is spending time with God. As mothers we have so much to do; looking after children, being a chauffeur, buying groceries, cooking, cleaning, ironing, church work, spending time with husband/family, catching up with friends, jobs, and more. Just as I finish one list of things to do, I have already started another list. Our daily list of stuff that needs to be done is overwhelming at times.
Time With God
When we spend time with God, we are better in tune with His voice. Somehow, He helps us make better decisions and choices concerning all the activities that we have to get done during each day. God still surprises me with all that He allows me to accomplish in one day. My challenge for us all is to begin the day in prayer and ask God for help and guidance to reveal the important things that need to be done. Like this potato is filled with great stuff, remember to also fill yourself up each day with the help and guidance in the Word of God and prayer. The following verse reminds us what we should be doing to make better choices. Luke 10:41-42 “’Martha, Martha,’ the Lord answered, ‘you are worried and upset about many things, but few things are needed—or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.’”
