We are not a traditional family and when it comes to the holidays, we’re no exception. Our holiday dinner changes from year to year and has included traditional meals like a ham speared with cloves and pineapple, to less traditional sausage lasagna, and everything in between. Add to all that our chief cook, me, is a vegetarian and you’ll see we’re a bit eclectic.

This year I think Pork may be our holiday dinner. I know for a lot of people Turkey is Thanksgiving, Ham is Christmas, and Pork is New Year’s Eve, but we dare to be different (plus the family can only eat turkey once a year, and we do that at the inlaws). So I’ve done some online searching for some unique holiday pork recipes my family might like for the holidays. So far I haven’t decided on one, but here are a few I’m considering (click on any photo to visit the creator’s website and to access the recipes).
