Roast Pork and Potatoes

 Roast Pork and Potatoes
Meet the Cook: We used to raise our own hogs. This recipe was given me by a fellow farmer who also had pork on the dinner table a couple of times a week. I'm a dietitian at the local VA hospital. Cooking, of course, is one of my top pastimes! My husband and I have four children and one grandson. -Denise Collins, Chillicothe, Ohio
