When it comes to entertaining, we’re in deep.

Here’s why.

When I think of my friends, the ones I want to cultivate deeper friendships with, the ones I find value in and want to get to know more, I can’t even imagine not having a meal with them.

You sit, relax, engage, pour your heart out, become authentic and vulnerable, and usually it’s mutually pleasurable. You learn pretty quickly from the times that it’s not. And quite seriously, you don’t have to invite those people over again. But for the ones you enjoy, it’s good.

The love language of food has a way of bringing down walls, because you’re less guarded and more trusting when sharing a meal.

It’s innately a trusting act.

It truly shows love.

We’re in deep. Hospitality is important to us and defines us. Because we need it more than we know!

Are you interested in cultivating new and fresh and deeper friendships? What stops you?

Last week I made a simple 2-Ingredient Crock Pot Pork Verde recipe.

Here’s what I LOVE about this recipe. In the morning, you decide you want to host that night, take a 1-pound pork roast or tenderloin from the freezer, place it in the crock pot … and the rest is easy.

Delicious pork that you can serve many ways. Here are only a few ideas: Tacos, enchiladas, on rice, on zucchini noodles, in soup, in a wrap, by itself with a delicious green salad.

Seriously, you can’t get any easier than 2 ingredients. No excuses now for hosting a small party! LOL

From a level of 1-10, 1 being shallow waters, 10 being deep ends … where do you stand with hosting a dinner?

  1. Can you use frozen pork chops?

  2. Could this be done over a longer time period (work is 10+ hours)?

  3. I love this Sandy!! SO EASY! This would fit in nicely to our week, but I love having it as a go-to for entertaining friends. Just add margaritas :)

  4. I was so wowed by this simple recipe last week. Had two events I needed a main dish for over the weekend: an international dinner at church and Sunday lunch. Everyone loved it, it was the easiest meal I’ve ever made. Thank you!

  5. Wow, you can’t beat that for ease. And look what a fab outcome.
    You did good, Girl!

  6. You so made my day. Two ingredients? Hugs and kisses your way, this could be life changing. Will make my boys very very happy. Me too. Pinned!

  7. So ridiculously easy, this looks incredible!

  8. Looks delicious!!!! I so appreciate you putting simple recipes on here!!!! Why do we always think I have to do something elaborate for having people over? its often way to stressful and time consuming plus I don’t want to “test” it on them. I love how you encourage us to practice with a recipes a few times first then use tried, true and loved recipes for hosting!!! Not that its not fun to try new recipes just not always the best idea to use the first time when you’re hosting.

  9. I love the simplicity of this, especially being able to use frozen meat. I’m guilty of often forgetting to defrost meat when I need it. So, this is perfect!

  10. YUM!!! I do this with chicken and regular salsa…I’ll have to try this version for something different. I’d say I’m a 5…I would be apt to have people over more…hubby is not quite so social and likes to stick with ones he knows well….and in the season of “challenging” changes it’s a little trickier. :/ BUT I do agree, that when food is involved, walls come down. My MIL is beautiful at this and often has people in her home for meals and we often get to join them since they live 2 minutes from our house
