I Love Rock ‘n Roulade

Fig & Grape Pork Loin Roulade with coconut gravy and greens dressed with dragon fruit and lime
I remember the day that my parent’s got cable. My brother and I were really excited about it – me probably more than him because he was still pretty young at the time. We caught on real quick that MTV was the “it” station – we absolutely loved watching it, and Joan Jett was one of those artists that they played quite a bit. Looking back, those videos were pretty bad-ass!! Inspired by Joan Jett, and her song, “I Love Rock ‘n Roll,”, I present this gorgeous Pork Loin Roulade, stuffed with figs and champagne grapes, coconut gravy, and arugula dressed with dragon fruit and lime!

USA Road Trip #5: The Flatirons’ Maiden

FtWorthKansasColorado-7

We’re finally making it up north, and out of Texas! No offense to Texas, but I was really stoked to get out of that heat. I just wasn’t ready for that kind of business. This trip was a loooooong, long trip from Texas, up through Oklahoma,then through Kansas, and into Colorado – a total of a whopping 878 miles. We started out super early from Ft. Work with no breakfast, and got on the road quick. We went straight north on I-35 to Oklahoma City before we got a hankering for lunch and to pick up some local craft beers. We did a Yelp search, and found Byrons Liquor Warehouse, which had a large selection! We acquired F5 IPA from Coop Ale Works, and Polar Night Stout from Roughtail Brewing Company – both excellent Oklahoma offerings.
