Urban Tailgate

So we went to the Nemanicks' last Saturday to watch the Mizzou football game. It was a disappointing loss, but at least the food was good!

Rik brined 2 pork tenderloins, then roasted one with ginger, the other with rosemary. Both were divine.

Sharon brought a kick ass chili cheese dip - what we all like to call 'crack dip' because it keeps you coming back for more....again....and again.

Tagert made some really amazing Mediterranean sausage meatballs with feta and olives.

I made Ina's Apple and Pear Crisp, minus the pears. Tagert tried this one out at our neighborhood Thanksgiving and the pears were, well, problematic. Chris Cozzoni doesn't like pears anyway, so I left them out. I think it was just as good, although I wouldn't recommend using Granny Smith apples in this. Go for something a bit softer, like a Gala, as the citrus zest and juice + tart apples can be a bit overwhelming. This recipe has an amazing crumble, which I'm sure to use on other dishes.
