I digs me some pig

**EDITED to remove the pork roast photo that was making people gag**

I have a long standing love affair with all things pork related. The pig loves me back. Bacon? Adoration. Ham? Heaven. Chops? Divine. Loin? Yes, please. I don't know why I love pig parts so damn much, but I find all of them delicious. No feet, no ears, nothing typically creepy. But hocks, chops, hams, shoulder roast, you name it. There is no cut of pork from which I cannot coax something amazing. Yes, I am painfully aware that this makes me a bad jew. I make sure that when we have dinner parties where any of my vegetarian/muslim/kosher friends are guests we do not serve any portions of pig. None of those caveats limit in any way my love of pork.

Over at Shauna's blog you can check out some of the most decadent bacon recipes in the world. She's fantastic and she loves food as much as I do. She and her husband throw dinner parties all the time, too. Except her hubby is a chef and she's written a cookbook... Matthew and I just dabble. We're amateur gourmands, but professional eaters.

If you're interested in gluten-free food for whatever reason (my almost father-in-law has celiac disease, which is a severe intolerance of gluten... it could kill him if he eats it) you would do yourself a favor to check out Shauna's blog. You could also just pop over to drool over the photos of the food she makes.

Ok...at first (and even second) glance, that photo looks like a hairy pig snout.

I never met a piece of bacon I didn't love.

Pork is another reason I could never ever ever be Vee-gun.

I wish I had seen the first pic before you removed it.

It is definitely the other white meat. #1 reason I cannot be Jewish. #2 reason is lobster.
#3 reason... uh, I believe in Jesus Christ.

Oh dear, that came out all wrong. Sad but true.
