Pork BLT Sliders for National Pork Month
Did ya know that October is National Pork Month? Fun huh? Costco has a great offer right now. You get $2.50 off Whole Boneless Pork Loins from 10/22-10/28.
To celebrate, I have a really fun recipe that uses boneless pork loin and even made a video demonstrating it back in June of this year during BlogHer Food in Seattle with my friends Jaden of Steamy Kitchen and Amanda of Kevin and Amanda. We had a great time making these videos and there’s even a silly blooper video you gotta check out, lol! Click the links below the recipe to watch
Fun seeing myself 6 months pregnant in these videos. Boy I don’t miss being pregnant!! Have a great day friends!
