Teagan's Baby Blessing

It was Teagan's big day yesterday. He was officially blessed and given a name: Teagan Amana Green. Jeremy blessed him in our ward. Here is a pic of everyone that stood in the circle, minus Jeremy's brother Tom (we didn't take the pic early enough before he needed to leave) and his cousin Brock (I'm not sure where he is?).

Jeremy's Family

We had an awesome lunch at the clubhouse right after sacrament meeting and 67 people came! Wow!

We had Cafe Rio Pork, which I got the recipe from Jenya. Jeremy did such an awesome job. He prepared all of the meat and got up at 4am yesterday to get all the last minute things done. He even packed the car up with all the stuff we needed. So, all I had to do is set up with the help of my mom and Jason. Thank you babe for all your hard work.

People keep asking me for the pork recipe, so here it is:

Cafe Rio Pork
3-4 lbs Pork Tenderloin (thawed and/or fresh, not frozen)
1 Bottle of Taco Sauce/ Med (16 oz)
1 Cup Brown Sugar
1 Tbsp Cumin Powder
1 Can of Coke

In crock pot, put pork in water filling water about 3/4 of the way.
Cook on low for 6 hours.
Take out pork and shred.
Mix ingredients together in crockpot.
Mix in pork.
Cook on low for an additional 3 hours.

We served the pork with tortillas, which we got the tortilla dough from Costco and cooked them on the griddle. We made white rice, brown rice and LIME rice. :) Yum! We also had shredded romaine lettuce, cheese, guacamole, sour cream, 6 layer bean dip and Peach Mango salsa. My mom made fruit salad and Jeremy's mom made her famous pasta salad. Another side we had was chips and spinach/artichoke dip.

Here is anothe pork recipe I got from my friend Teresa which is very similar and is just as good.

Pork Picnic Roast
6lbs thawed picnic pork roast (put in slow cooker)

Add water and cover 1/2 of roast
Cook on high for 5 hours (Do NOT remove lid during this time)
Take pork out after 5 hrs and drain water from slow cooker
After you drain water, put roast back in slow cooker

Add 1 Can of Coke
Add 2 Cups of Brown Sugar
Add 16 oz jar of Pace Picante Salsa (Med Spicy)
Cook 3 more hours on High
Shred Pork & Enjoy!

We had just enough food. I was worried we'd run out. The blessing went really good and Jeremy did a fantastic job and the lunch turned out well. Thank you everyone that could make it. It means a lot to us. We are blessed with great friends and family.

Sorry we missed it too, we have had some sick kids and with my calling I had to be there on Sunday. It looks like you had a good time though.
