The other night, we hosted a potluck get-together with friends we met back from our days when we volunteered with the Colorado Saint Bernard Rescue. We all had a good time catching up with each other and visiting, and while we were visiting we were also busy filling our tummies with some delicious food. Everyone brought a ton of food, and of course, I made a ton of food, which means we had two tons of food. We had a wide variety of delicious and delectable foods. I alone made a smoked pork loin and some smoked chicken, a Southwestern sweet potato salad, a cucumber-tomato-onion salad, Cool Cucumber Salad and an apple spice streussel cake Apple Spice Streusel Cake. Then our guests all brought food as well, including more smoked, pulled pork and a smoked brisket, both of which were out of this world delicious; chicken wings and a beautiful antipasto salad. We had enough food to feed a small army, and then some. But alas, there were only a few of us, and there was no way we could possibly eat all the food we had. In fact, we barely even made a dent in the abundant spread of food, which means we have a ton of leftovers that need to be used. It is a good thing the Queen of Leftovers is here. I will be busy for quite some time re-creating dishes out of all these wonderful leftovers.
The pork is ready for the smoker.
The finished product. Delicious!
After everyone left and took home what they wanted, this is all the food that was still left over. It looks like so one even ate anything at all, but believe me, we did. It looks like the Queen of leftovers will be busy for awhile.
