I feel like I haven’t really, like REALLY talked to you guys in a while. I’m trying to bring you so much new and fun stuff, that sometimes I forget what’s really important here: building our friendship. Is it weird that we’ve never met in person and we still have some sort of connection? Of course it’s weird, but it’s just us. Other people just don’t understand.

Well…honestly not a lot has been going on over here. Back to normal life since I’m not traveling. Which means lots of working. Especially since football season is here. I’ve complained about it before, but my husband works Mon-Sat and now spends his Sundays watching football. Don’t get me wrong, I still find it completely f*cking annoying, but I’ve learned to deal with it a little better with each week. Mostly by just filling my time with more work. So then I’m working Mon-Sun. Luckily, I really love my job. But I love having a husband as well, so it’s a fine line. If we ever end up going to therapy, it will be because of football. Not because he likes to watch it, but because of my extreme hatred for it. We will have to seek therapy because I hate football THAT much. Until then, I’ll be making cake balls and brunching with friends on Sundays.

A couple days ago on a Sunday, when football was going on in the background and I already got all my work done, I decided to sit with him while listening to podcasts. Ever since starting my own, I can’t stop listening to others. It’s super inspiring and I love hearing the banter between people. And of course, I got hooked on murder mystery podcasts. But when you get hooked on that kind of sh*t, it’s a never ending hole into gloom and despair. And then you think everyone is a murderer. And now at night, I obsessively checked all the doors and windows to make sure they are locked. And here every single sound when I’m trying to fall asleep.

So I took a break that night and turned to Anna Faris and her interview with Olivia Munn, who is a total babe and dating Aaron Rodgers (the only football player I know by name since his brother was on the Bachelor and talked sh*t about him. yaaaaaassss to all the drama) and they went on to talk about childbirth. And how no downstairs is the same afterwards. Which led me to think about a podcast episode entitled “why having children scares the ish out of me” and all the subtopics I would cover in this episode. Which led me to sleep a total of 3 hours. Because I was having nightmares of someone outside my door and birthing a human.

This is what has been going on in PaleOMG world. Not a lot, but yet, soooooo much.

  • Yield: about 10 tacos 1x



For the pork

  • 2 cups fresh diced pineapple
  • ½ white onion, roughly chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • ½ cup orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 2 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce

For the tacos


  1. Place all pork ingredients (except for the pork) in a high speed blender and blend until smooth. Place cubed pork loin in a crockpot and cover pork with pureed mixture. Cover crockpot and cook on low for about 8 hours.
  2. Once pork has cooked through, use two forks to shred the meat and mix to coat with the cooked down sauce.
  3. To heat tortillas: place tortilla over a gas stovetop until slightly browned on both sides (about 10-15 seconds per side).
  4. To build tacos: use a slotted spoon to scoop out the meat and place in taco shell. Top with pineapple, onion, cilantro, a small amount of creamy ranch, and squeeze fresh lime juice on top!
  5. Serve up, buttercup!

  2. Linda says:

    This was so easy to make, the house smelled amazing, and it tasted delicious! I made it last night to have today, and at 11pm when it was cool enough to transfer to a container I was licking the pot 🙂 I had it with salad wraps and some avocado. Thanks for the inspiration!

    1. juli says:

      awesome!! so glad you loved it, linda!

  3. DJDeeJay says:

    This was so good! I cut it down to one pepper in adobo and accidentally bought a grapefruit instead of an orange and it’s still delicious and just spicy enough for me. I added sliced plantains and peppers to the bottom of the crockpot and lo and behold I had lunches for the week all done.

  4. Katie says:

    I followed the recipe to the letter and I tasted the sauce and it’s way too spicy for me, and I love spicy food. How can I make what I already have made and sitting in the crockpot less spicy?
    Lesson learned: read comments BEFORE making recipe.

    1. juli says:

      chipotle peppers in adobo sauce can be hella spicy, that’s for sure. you could always add some honey or agave to the mixture to calm it down!
