The Second Annual Indian Summer Picnic

This what 17 pounds of pork looks like.

I think that it’s safe to say that I tend to get a little carried away.

And, so the Second Annual Indian Summer Picnic was a little bigger than the first.

Owing to bad time management skills on my part (a recurring theme here, it seems), it was a race to the finish to get everything on the table. In fact, if not for the help of my friend Andrea, who I’ve mentioned here before, it might not have happened.

Within an hour or so, eight pounds of pork were consumed and two wine glasses were broken. I’d say that’s a sign of a successful dinner.

Onto the menu:

Mains:
Pulled Pork, with barbecue sauce
Baked Macaroni and Cheese

Sides:
White Bread
Garlic Pickles
Fennel Slaw
Four Bean Salad

Expect recipes soon.
