Pork and Hominy Skillet

Pork and Hominy Skillet

I originally posted a Pork Skillet recipe in August 2009.  I went back to make it again as part of my never ending effort to add photos to old posts, and I completely changed the entire thing.   The original had a tomato base.  Most of my children will eat tomatoes, but Princess Pat has a complete aversion to them unless they are in pizza sauce form.  She does not even like ketchup.  I keep putting a Tablespoon of spaghetti sauce on her noodles, but I have made little progress over the years.Pork and Hominy Skillet

So, when I saw the tomatoes in the old post, I knew I needed to do something.  I decided to make a skillet with the flavors of Posole.  We all love that simple soup, so I figured a one dish meal along the same lines would be a hit.  And it was.

Do you ever read a recipe one year and think, “No, I don’t think I would like that,”  and then months or years later, you come across it again and decide it doesn’t sound so bad?  That is happening a bit as I remake some of these older recipes.  Isn’t it funny how our tastes change?   The only recipe I have ever firmly decided never to try involved hamburger, lime jell-o and Miracle Whip.  It will be a cold day in the Hot Place before that one graces my table.
