We ran out of ideas.

We tried that, but she wouldn't stay in the crockpot, so we had to resort to baked beans on polenta, slices of sausage bread, a garden salad, fresh corn on the cob, and apple pie.

Darn. LOL!!! I'm just kidding!

I started with the Food52 recipe for pork ragu that Andy posted a couple weeks ago, adapting it for the Instant Pot. I added 4 tbsp homemade tomato paste for that long-cooked flavor and a cube of frozen basil from last summer's garden. Start to finish in an hour and a half instead of four hours! Yay!

I served it over this huge spiral pasta DH bought at Kroger called trottole. Green beans simmered with Penzeys Fox Point seasoning and chicken broth and homemade bread completed the meal.

He enjoyed the home fried corn chips with his, and I was happy with my store bought Chicharrones for scooping. Ole'!
P.S. Sorry about the blurry food spattered spots on my camera lens. Cleaned now.
Kay, that looks absolutely divine - even better than the pic in the recipe! I haven't had ceviche in years, but boy am I wanting it now. Perfect looking fried tortilla chips, too.

Mmm....delish looking dinner, GG. I love Fox Point on green beans!
