Growing up on a very large farm in Kentucky, some of our daily chores was milking cows, feeding the animals and working in the fields, so we just didn't have time some days to fix a large elaborate dinner everyday. Southern Pork N Tators is one example of the meals that Granny and Me would do and everyone thought it took us hours to make. The tender pork chunks and the two types of tators really plays well with the sweetness of the pork. Every fork full makes you want more and more. It will make you start tapping your toes and you just cant set still and eat it.
