Laura Calder's Milk Pork (Milk Pork), two sides--butternut squash and brussels sprouts, followed by gingerbread for dessert. I'm trying a recipe from 1929 for the gingerbread (didn't get it made last week because the taste tester wasn't available and I don't need to keep it in the house)!

Yum

I'm making grilled smoked pork ribs with sauerkraut and baked onions.

We're having guests for cocktails and appetizers late afternoon so probably won't eat much of a dinner.

That milk pork recipe sounds awfully Danish.

I doubt you will actually need the immersion blender for the sauce. I make a pork recipe that uses a lot of cream and it curdles, as described, but mixing it well with a wooden spoon, while reducing it, has always made a smooth, thick sauce for me. I just stir and reduce until it is as thick as I want it.

If Stirling goes to Blue Lotus with friends for Chinese food (I don't go because of the soy), I'll have to figure out something.

If he is having supper at home, it will be slow roasted leg of lamb, sides to be decided.

We're going to a Barolo wine tasting at 4pm today (weird time, I know) so we'll probably eat something light before we go. I have a leftover chicken breast in the fridge, so we might just have that chopped over some salad greens.
