Pulled Pork Tacos

I was blessed to spend Memorial weekend with 4 fabulous ladies at Lake Martin. We split our time: reading, watching movies, talking, and eating. Lots and lots of eating!Before I left town on Friday I grabbed lunch at Southern Sweets Bakery. I had a shrimp cake Caesar salad and it was delish!
The cake that I picked up for the weekend was the Old Fashioned Chocolate Cake. It is melt in your mouth good. If you're in town-stop by and pick one up! Make sure you have people to share it with or you will eat the entire thing.
For my assigned meal at the lakehouse, I made pulled pork tacos and they were a hit! A good change from the packet of taco seasoning you've had for years!
