Pulled Pork

A big mess of pulled pork at the graduation party we attended last night. A great idea for a gathering because it can be prepared the day before.

Sweet Corn Tamale Cakes

I ordered this appetizer as dinner last night at the Cheesecake Factory. Sweet corn tamale cakes. Delish and too rich to eat more than two. Sweet, salty, tangy, spicy and cool all at once.

BLT Salad Sandwich

On the dinner menu: BLT salad sandwiches. This BLT salad is good on its own, too. Bake thick-sliced bacon, yes, bake it! Regular readers know that you NEVER fry bacon, you bake it at 325 degrees. No turning. No spattering. The dressing is mayonnaise and red wine vinegar whisked together. Chop tomatoes, Romaine and cooked bacon and toss with the dress. Load onto a fresh-baked baguette.
