        1. Try a pork butt/shoulder in a slow oven or crockpot overnight, the possibilities for the leftovers are quite varied...

          1. A seafood salad with lettuce, hard boiled eggs, cold asparagus spears, chunks of peeled tomato, red onion, shrimp or other favorite seafood, maybe a few capers and a good thousand island dressing made with your own hands.
            If you want to reduce the heat produced/vessels used faction, boil the eggs, use the remaining water to loosen the peels on the tomatoes, poach the asparagus in the remaining water (for 3 - 5 minutes) and use the last of the water to steam the seafood.
