Pulled pork sandwiches

Who doesn’t love BBQ? Well, my husband, Stephen, makes the best BBQ around . . . and I’m not the only one that thinks that ­čÖé

He smoked a boston butt this weekend (for 14 hours!) for our family get-together. I made some homemade gluten-free hamburger buns that rocked and loaded up my sandwich with BBQ heaven, including his homemade sauce, he made just for me (corn-free)! Isn’t he just a sweetie!?

Gluten-free french baguette for Banh Mi

I found this blog post referencing lots of different bread recipes. You can visit it here: http://glutenfreeeasily.com/bountiful-bread-basket-top-20-gluten-free-bread-recipes/. I chose to make a french baguette for a recipe Stephen created this weekend. The bread recipe is here: http://www.artofglutenfreebaking.com/2009/05/french-baguettes-gluten-free/. The bread turned out great! As expected, gluten free bread is denser, but it still had a great taste. Here is a picture:

I would love to give props to my husband, Stephen, who is an excellent cook. We did Vietnamese Banh Mi sandwiches with pulled pork and man, oh man, they were delicious!! Stephen is great with BBQ and he smoked two boston butts on his Weber smoker. He chopped up cucumbers, a jalapeno, and red onions as garnishes. Then he marinated grated Japanese radish and carrots in vinegar overnight so they were pickled. That was by far the best topping! That radish smells funky, but it tastes awesome! I forgot to take a picture of the finished product. Sorry! But trust me; we will be doing that one again!
