Here's Little Miss Attitude (aka Alexa) in her tap costume for this year's recital. They're dancing to "Can't Be Tamed" by Miley Cyrus and I can tell you that her teacher picked out the perfect costume. We're talking a black, sleeveless "leather" biker-style, belted vest atop a hot pink and black unitard with "torn" mesh at the top, a tutu and rhinestone-studded shorts. The accessories are neon green, fingerless, mesh gloves, a black rhinestone-studded choker, and a sweet, little innocent floral headband. :)
During one class, Alexa's teacher was telling them she wanted to see more attitude as they danced. She said she wanted them to act like the "b" word. Alexa very kindly asked if the "b" word could be brat. That's my girl! :)

Before I share today's recipe, please take a minute to visit Jillibean Soup's blog. You just may see a familiar name there. :)
This week I made this recipe for the second time in the past month. The first time we all loved it but decided it was too heavy on the balsamic vinegar. This time I cut it down to about 1/4 c. Super easy recipe to put together and "forget" as it cooks.
My crock pot runs pretty hot so everything was done in about 4 hours on low. Also, I use a center cut boneless pork roast loin because it's very lean, doesn't have a lot of fat, and shreds apart easily. Other than that, I follow the recipe, as is. :)
