A Feast of Thrones: Chapter 6

The main course turned out to both the most tenuous link to the seven kingdoms, and the most delicious.

I'm sure that some house must have a boar as their sigil, but a boar also kills a major character midway through the first book, so Pete served up a platter or pork tenderloin, wrapped in bacon and sided by vegetables roasted in its juices.

At the risk of sounding sacrilegious, pigs are a major part of the reason that I find the idea of a loving creator very easy to believe, so taking the flesh of the pig and surrounding it with even more pig strikes me as nothing short of brilliant.

The herb basted vegetables and potatoes carried a hint of the pork flavor, and the tender meat made for a wonderful end to the savory portion of the meal.
