Intentional Leftovers...

Intentional leftovers is exactly what it sounds like,  when you make a dish with the specific intent to use it for more than one meal.
Pulled Bbq, made in the crockpot, is a great example of how to work "intentional leftovers" into your weekly menu plan.
What you need:
Pork roast or boneless chicken breasts
1 to 2 cups of NON DIET Root beer (depending on the amt of meat you use & the size of your crockpot)
3 or 4 cloves of garlic (chopped)
1 med onion (chopped)
Bottle of your favorite Bbq sauce (I prefer Sweet Baby Ray's) or your own homemade.
Add the first 4 ingredients to your crockpot and cook for 4-6 hrs on high or 6-7 hrs on low. When it done,  (you'll know it's done when you can shred it with a fork)  strain all the juice off the meat, add the meat back to the crockpot & add 1/2 (more or less to your taste) bottle of your favorite sauce, shred meat with two forks. Let meat cook about another hour and then serve.
This is great for Bbq potatoes, Bbq sandwiches, Bbq burrito wraps, Bbq chicken pizza, Bbq ranch bacon pizzas and lots more.
