Dinner 5/9/07

who's cooking tonight? I'm going to try something a little different with my pork loin tonight. As a kid and young adult, my mother always cut slits in her pork roast and inserted a slice of garlic and some fresh rosemary. My dad and sister loved it, but I found the garlic crunchy and hot and the rosemary just too strong...I've roasted a head of garlic and picked some rosemary sprigs,I'm going to put evoo in the bottom of my roasting pan and lay the rosemary sprigs on the evoo, then place the pork roast on the rosemary..when the roast has about 20 min. left to cook, I'm going to take a spatula and smash up the garlic add a little salt and then smear it over the roast, cutting some slits and inserting some of the roasted cloves in there..Have fingerling potatoes and baby carotts to add to the pan..Large green salad, peas with mushrooms, chunky apple sauce should do it..Dessert, half cantaloupes with vanilla ice cream in the middle.
What are you planning?

I had too much lunch with friends today. (a large chicken fillet sandwich with curly fries.....we were smart enough to order water to drink)

Everyone will be away for the evening so it will be a snack for later. Right now, I'm just hoping it will be a tictac!

I'm making a boneless pork roast tonight too kadesma I marinaded the pork in a dijon/horseradish sauce with sauteed red onions, with a bit of chicken broth added to the roasting pan to keep the pork moist. Probably some sort of potatoe dish on the side and some peas.

I'm cooking up boneless pork chops and making some gravy. I"m also making some instant mashed potatoes. I really should use the last package that I have. I also have a frozen bag of mixed brocolli and cauliflower. I'll have to use 1/2 the bag, since it's only for the 2 of us.

We will probably have an apple each since we had lunch at our local seafood place - all you can eat flounder. I didn't get extra, but dh did and we are both quite satisfied. Also we didn't finish lunch until about 2:30 so I think with an apple about 7ish I'll be good til breakfast.

Amber,
that sounds good. Let me know how you liked it. I'd like to give it a try.

Instant Mashed Potatoes are a household staple. Although I am lousy at making instant mashed potatoes, I have been served some great ones. So Boo hoo, I use them for potato soup. (others at DC often use them as a thickening agent).

Someone recently gave me a small recipe that includes instant mashed potatoes in it. It's like a little potatoe pancake with shredded veggies to try to get veggies into my 13 month old. It didn't work though, but I thought it was good "lol". When my new baby arrives in August, believe me...I won't have time to make mashed potatoes from scratch. But there is nothing like the real thing though of course.
