Happy Labor Day weekend everyone! I hope the weather is beautiful where you are and you're enjoying the long weekend. You may have noticed there wasn't a Friday food post this week, that's because I decided to take a rare weekend off. I started out catching up on the new season of Dr Who on Friday and went to see the new Sin City movie on Saturday. Now that we have a toddler underfoot date nights are rare things, but I've got the best friend ever who offered to babysit for us so I jumped at the chance. Today she brought her family along for some fun and we spent a good part of the day at Taste of Madison trying out bits and bites from our local restaurants. This event is without a doubt my favorite all year, not that should surprise you since it's food related. Our local restaurants set up tents around the Capitol grounds, the same place the Dane County Farmers' Market takes place. The prices are reasonable, usually $3-4 to sample an item off the menu. I love that this event gives us a chance to sample the best food Madison has to offer all in one place. If you're curious about what I tried this year you can check out my instagram feed for the highlights. We stumbled across some real gems including dessert Sushi and Beer Battered Fries with Truffle Oil.
Now that I've spent the last few minutes teasing you with the things I've eaten today, I'll go ahead and share a recipe for the Dr Pepper Pork tacos that I mentioned recently. Those of you who made my recipe from last week know that it makes a ton, so if you weren't feeding a crowd, then you've likely got plenty of leftovers. As much as I like eating pulled pork sandwiches I do get tired of them, so when I've had my fill I switch over to tacos. These are quick to toss together and don't require you to do anything more strenuous that reheating leftover Dr Pepper Pork. We all need a few meals like that in our repertoire. If you haven't had the chance to make last week's recipe yet, all I can say is "for shame Doc!" Seriously though, you're really missing out, Dr Pepper Pork is amazing.
