This is a very belated post! As some of you probably already know Ron and I go to a lot of Phillies games and we take a lot of pride in out tailgates. Our friends go all out - tents, tables, grills, games, beer, wine, booze and lots and lots of grub. We generally stick to the Holiday Inn parking lot but large scale tailgates call for a spot at FDR park and this April 2nd tailgate was a big one with one VERY special guest. The boys get props for coming up with the brilliant idea to invite this guy:

Yummy. I mean look how happy he made everyone!

Apparently pork make boys happy and, I gotta be honest, the girls were pretty happy too. How could you not be when there were fixin's for pork three ways?

With garlicly broccoli rabe and sharp provolone or vinegary BBQ sauce and creamy slaw:

Or in taco form with pineapple salsa, queso fresco and chipotle sour cream:

Yup - we take tailgating pretty seriously. I also made sweet potato salad and cookies but who cares about that when there's an entire pig and all it's crunchy skin to eat?
