Simple Good and Tasty Pig Roast

Last Sunday, after a weekend spent camping, our family went to a pig roast held by fellow (and more frequent) blogger Lee from Simple Good and Tasty. The pig roast and potluck was enjoyed by around 150 guests who all share the same thought that food is best when it's local. The roasted pig, while amazing, in my opinion was outshone by the insane spread of side dishes featuring ingredients from back yards all around the twin cities. Mike may disagree and say the pig was better. Certainly, our children seemed to enjoy crunching down on crispy pigskin more than trying all the sides which ranged from pasta salads, tabbouleh, tomato dishes, and potato salads. My own salad of roasted sweet corn, heirloom tomatoes, edamame, and green and yellow snap beans with a garlic vinaigrette seemed to go fast. The meal also featured sausages from Kramarczuks and pulled chicken from Brasa. It was all so good. I can't wait until next year!
