Q: My boyfriend is a big fan of pork, as evidenced by him cooking 6 pounds of pork shoulder on Sunday in our brand new slow cooker. Problem is, he’s now going out of town which means that I am responsible for putting it to good use (i.e. eating it all), which is impossible. Any suggestions for how else to eat this delicious meat other than in tacos or pulled pork sandwiches (which are becoming a little boring)? Thanks a ton!

Editor: Jackie, the good news here is that pulled pork freezes brilliantly. In fact, it’s probably my favorite meal to freeze. Put it in one-serving-size containers — maybe with some beans — and you have lunches for a week. Also check out this post:

Readers, any suggestions?
