When I was in high school Mom worked as a cook in the restaurant kitchen at the South Bend Farmer's Market. Every Saturday they served old fashioned Roast Beef and Roast Pork. Everything there was homemade and simply delicious. This roast pork dinner was my favorite. It was served with real mashed potatoes and homemade dressing. Fresh vegetables were used most of the year. And after your dinner there was homemade pie. AWESOME!
