Forgive Me I’ve Been Experimenting… With Pork


Sorry the blog has come to a screeching halt for the past two weeks, there’s a PERFECTLY good explanation I promise.  I’ve been endlessly experimenting with foods for my “Pork Experiment” dish in the evenings instead of blogging!

It’s been fun and I’m just tweaking little details here and there to get ready for the big day, SUNDAY.

What I’ve got in the fridge:

  • 15lbs of pork shoulder from a local farm in Bastrop TX, Bershire Pork!
  • Homemade pickles, that are increasing with flavor as we speak.
  • Homemade mustard that’s almost done.
  • Some delicious baby swiss…
  • Some other secrets that I cannot divulge at this time!
