1st Annual Pork-Off

The family decided to make Sunday dinner for me for my birthday. Oldest Son had successfully tried a recipe for CP Sweet Pork, (ala. Cafe Rio), in Logan with FDIL and wanted to do that. But, DH is not a fan of Mexican food in any form, and he decided to make his own pork. Let the competition begin! DH combed the Food Network site and found a likely-looking recipe, along with one for roasted potatoes. My kitchen was full of menfolk and good smells during the day yesterday. Youngest Son took over the Roasted Potato recipe. Here's a look at what happened:

OS made his pork into burritoes:YS roasted those potatoes:DH made a salad to go along side:It was all yummy, but I must say that Oldest's Son's sweet pork was really, really good. I'll post the recipe tomorrow. DH's pork was, well, a little dry. We had a fun, if competetive dinner. Only Daughter and her husband brought my favorite dessert, crushed strawberries over vanilla ice cream. Thanks, family!


  1. I had to laugh at the mental image of all the men cooking you dinner. I especially love the salad portion....don't strain yourself, DH!
