Imagine for a moment a platter of freshly toasted bread, side by side on the table with a bowl of crisp lettuce and a second platter of sliced red tomatoes. Everything looks delicious, but something is missing. All that’s needed is some crisp bacon, currently frying in the kitchen. This is a common scene in my family, where BLTs are a delicious meal that we enjoy fairly often.
While my family enjoys BLTs, there are many ways that people can add pork to their diets. Since October is pork month, I encourage you to think about the different ways you currently enjoy pork, and maybe think about some new recipes too. You might just find a new family favorite.
