Football Food - I love this time of year

I had the opportunity to introduce my grandson, Christian, to Football Sunday at Grammy's house today.  What a pleasure.  Poor boy, didn't know what hit him.

First, I taught him to throw his arms in the air and yell. Christian just yelled, but Grammy yelled "Go Rams"!  We'll keep working on that one.  He thought it was lots of fun anyway.  And . . . he liked the food prep. He helped me taste test everything.

Pulled Pork

Place two pork tenderloins (about 2 lbs each)
Sprinkle heavily with Smoky BBQ Seasoning
2/3 cup vinegar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup of your favorite BBQ sauce

Cook in slow crock pot for four hours.  Remove meat and shred.
Return shredded meat the crock pot and add 1 1/2 cups BBQ Sauce.  Cook over low heat for 1/2 hour.

I served this with coleslaw with Aunt Irene's Coleslaw Dressing and Butternut Squash with Maple

Maple - Butternut Squash

2 medium butternut squash (about 6 lbs)
6 Tbsp unsalted butter
6 Tbsp pure maple syrup, Grade B for strongest flavor
3 tsp coarse kosher salt, plus more to taste

Bake at 350 degrees for 1 1/2 hours covered by foil.  Scrape all into bowl and mix well.  Sprinkle with salt.  Smash squash with maple and butter to serve.  Yummy!
