Tailgating & Pin to WIN $250 with Pork + {$100 Kroger Gift Card & Prize Pack GIVEAWAY} #TailgatingWithPork

We recently hosted a tailgating party with some friends where the menu was a pork lovers dream. I am sure you know by now that my husband is a serious carnivore. He loves to grill meat and cook meat and pretty have meat at every meal.

One of his favorites is pork so at our recent party, we came up with a really fun cocktail menu, bought potato chips and tortilla chips, made homemade salsas and of course made lots of pork items.
