I had a chance to go to Dorchester. Work related.
For this, the most ancestral of homes, the place the Patriarch was raised and identified as being from. Not matter how many years we lived in Pembroke, he would still say he was from Dorchester.
Besides, the place is in the midst of another resurgence. Places get that every 80 years or so. It’s a deep breath away from being – dare I say it? – Hipster. Or whatever will follow hipster, because in 2 years it will no longer hip to be hipster, so whatever we call what follows.
And then to lunch.
Local 149, South Boston
On the menu was deep fried mac and cheese….
Lots of deliciousness….
Excuse me, waiter
What is Porky Toast?
You’re gonna wanna try this! Porky toast…BBQ pulled pork on ciabatta, herb cream cheese, sunny side up 🍳 #local149 #southie #brunch #sundayfunday #voteforpedro
Pulled pork AND Toast??? Could this be like the Reese’s Cup – two great tastes that taste great together?
I didn’t even notice the eggs until the plate was sitting in front of me.photo from Local 149 instagram
How to re-create this at home?????
Sister Trish added slow cooker pulled pork to the Christmas Feasting at her house last year…..
which makes it the perfect time to introduce the clan to Porky Toast.
And I just like saying the words:
I supplied Sis with a Butt. There was Butt discussion.
I got Pirate Spread to sub in/ totally improve on the herb cream cheese.
Pirate Spread: A spicy, sweet spread made with Salty Sea Feta, sundried tomatoes, rosemary, cayenne pepper and olive oil. Its boldness makes it a perfect match for grilled meats, veggie pizza or oven fries.
Then I got some onion rolls, split them and toasted them
I got to spend Christmas Day saying, “Porky Toast”
