Did a braised pork loin German style. Heavy S&P, seared and removed. Added thick sliced onion, then 2 crushed garlic cloves. deglazed with chicken stock and apple cider. Brought pot to a simmer, returned pork, added bay leaves and allspice berries, covered and adjusted heat to braise. Added in order of cooking time, carrots, cabbage wedges and golden delicious apple wedges. When pork was ready, I removed and tented it. Removed carrots, cabbage and spices. Blitzed the broth and apples with an immersion blender, adjusted seasoning and reduced "sauce". Added butter to make a silky finished sauce.

Served sliced roast with cabbage and carrots, mashed taters, all smothered in sauce.

If you're gonna make a Key Lime pie, you have to use real Key Limes!

Leftover slow-cooker carnitas! Soo good and so much healthier than their restaurant counterparts!

Haven't had broiled marinated flank steak strips in awhile. I got a slab of flank yesterday and cut the whole thing into 1/3" thick strips, then froze them in serving sizes for later use. I marinate them for 30-60 min (up to 1lb of strips) in 4 Tbs lime juice, 2 Tbs soy sauce, 1/2 tsp minced garlic, 1 tsp ground ginger, 1 tsp sugar, 1/4 tsp salt and pepper, then broil the strips on my Norpro broil pan. A baked/microwaved potato, canned or fresh green beans, salad and toasted french bread round out this meal.

Open faced burgers tonight with avocado slices, bacon, and pepper jack.

Oh, and a salad.

I ended up making the crab salad sans the spam, but also made some rolled tortillas stuffed with fried Chorizo spam, onions, and eggs, and cheese and salsa...was very good.

We had a lovely evening and probably stayed longer than
we should have
Mr. Neighbor was grilling, for the first time in his life,
a flank steak that he had marinaded in ketchup, soy and
Worcestershire; he said he had no idea what he was doing, that neither of them cook.
DH chimes in, "oh my wife cooks for me all of the time, that's her hobby"...
at this point Mr. Neighbor asks me to assist him.
It truly was a lovely evening.
