About a month ago, my husband bought a buffalo with 2 other friends, had it slaughtered (gulp) and filled our freezer with buffalo burgers, steaks and roasts. I have always heard that buffalo meat was more lean than regular beef, so I was kind of excited to try it. The first thing I made was this delicious BBQ buffalo sandwich. This is a great BBQ recipe that I got from my sister-in-law, Carrie. It goes great with beef, pork or.......buffalo.

Mix together and pour over roast in crock pot. Cook on low for 9 hours. If using leftover roast, cook only for 4 hours. Remove roast, shred with two forks and add back to crock pot and mix in juices. Serve with buns.
I love to bake and cook, but it seems like I am always on a diet. To keep my sanity, I give myself one "cheat day " a week. On that day I have permission to splurge a little. I'd hate to do a cooking blog that was all healthy recipes, so I created Cheat Day Cafe so that I could share some of my non-diet recipes too. Cheat days make life more interesting! So here is a collection of healthy, real person, family recipes and a few "cheats" thrown in for fun.
