Ohhhh my goodness, this looks amazing. From the mind of Jordan Peele (Key & Peele), this is exactly what my spirit needs before Logan is released. Check out the trailer:

Pork belly: an experiment in deliciousness

February 22, 2017 Leave a comment

During the week my meals are pretty lame, but that’s by design. Weekday meals keep me fueled, but weekend meals feed my soul. Otherwise y’all, I’d be getting down with high octane deliciousness all the time, trust.

I tend to watch the Food Network quite a bit, mostly because I’m fascinated by the dishes expert-level chefs can whip up. Perhaps in another life I went to culinary school and opened my own restaurant instead of being a veteran of the IT industry, but in this life I have much catching up to do.

Getting back to the Food Network: they love them some pork belly. Would you believe that aside from bacon I’ve never tried it? A few weeks ago, I decided to do something about that.

This recipe, oh my goodness, this recipe for Roasted Pork Belly with Brown Sugar Glaze was killer. Even before the glazing, I was taste testing the pork belly more times than I really needed, it was that delicious. Definitely not an all the time thing or I’d be having major issues, but it was awesome. And, two days later I used the leftovers for a homemade pizza.

If you try it, let me know what you think.
