Kalua pork sandwiches for the Super Bowl crowd

By Scott Banks For some reason sandwiches came to mind when I was planning the eats for Super Bowl Sunday. So I decided on kalua pork sandwiches.

By Scott Banks The saying goes in the bayou that when you meet anyone, you ask them three questions: “Who’s your momma; are you Catholic; and, can you make a roux?” My answers are: “My momma is with Elvis, I was raised Presbyterian and, yes, I can make a roux.” Only the last question is […]
