Meal 1: Pulled Pork Shoulder, Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Yellow Rice Succotash
Vegetarians: remove the cheese mixture from jar and into a bowl. You will need a utensil. Add a very little bit of milk or other dairy ( or water ). Less than 1 T per share. Mix this in, then press the cheese into golf ball sized balls, and flatten them into disks about 1/2" thick.
Heat a little oil over medium in a nonstick or well seasoned pan. When hot add the cheese patties and brown them on each side. About 1-2 minutes per side. Serve atop the rice and sweet potato.
Omnivores. Briefly microwave the pork and sauce to get the chill out. Transfer to a sauce pan and heat gently. Add just a little water and lid the sauce pan. Allow to simmer very gently for 4-6 minutes. Be VERY careful to not burn the sauce and pork. Taste the sauce and add a little salt as desired. Stir and use a fork to shred the pork as coarse or fine as you like and to fold it with its sauce. Reserve.
Remove the sweet potatoes from the jar and reserve.
Heat a little butter or oil in a sauté pan. When hot add rice. Toss to dress. Add butter if necessary. Allow the rice to heat through and become fragrant. Transfer to serving bowls.
