A couple weeks ago I was lucky enough to have my friends Michael and Tommy in town from Chicago. Michael and I have known each other since we were 8 years old on the Florida Aquatics swimteam (Michael went on to being the top in the state and I quit and joined the band – so very typical). Since then, we have been attached at the hip traveling to visit one another from London to Chicago, Florida and North Carolina. For Michael’s first stay on Mendenhall, I made him his favorite Cuban Pork Roast with all the traditional sides. Michael has been begging me to teach him how to cook this pork roast since my mom made it for him over Christmas about 6 years ago. So, it was about time. This week I’ll post the recipes from our dinner and Tommy’s famous breakfast burritos that we had in the morning.
