What's for dinner tonight, Mom?
That question is brought up during breakfast....sometimes because the 'loved one' has a special request or craving.
I'm always thinking about what to have for dinner and to find an answer, I headed into the 'cookbook room'. I found a negleted copy of River Cafe Two Easy which I bought this summer. I don't want Rose and Ruth to wonder why this book was gathering dust, so I started pouring through the pages to find something that tempted my taste buds.
I found Slow-Roasted Pork in Milk, read a bit further and realized I had most ingredients already. So far, so good! I had lots of garlic, lemon for the 'peel', my Sage bush was still producing some decent leaves.......Yeah, this was sounding like it could be dinner!
Then I remembered that Biggles had already blogged about a similar recipe. Actually, his roast looked really delicious, nice and browned. He did complain about his sauce, but I had my secret weapon, Cream Fraiche. This 'pot of delicious' stays in my fridge, always ready to enrich any bland sauce!
Dinner was accompanied by a roasted asparagus and seared Little Gem Salad! Topped with shavings of Parmesan Cheese. (you know that I served mashed potatoes too)
Weeknight dinner, one night down! Now.........what about tomorrow??
