dw made a fantastic pork loin tonight, served with baby peas and a salad. the loin had a nice, thick fat cap, and when it was taking too long to cook, she cranked up the heat to get it done. the result was a beautifully browned and moist roast. i was going to explain what a reverse sear was, but i was too busy eating.

We really must eat something healthy soon.
What part of that don't you consider healthy? Fresh vegis? Whole grain tortillas? Cheese? Meat?

Tortillas fried in oil for one, and pork Carnitas twice cooked in pork fat another. Just the veggies with cheese would have been a more "healthy choice" but not anywhere near as tasty.

I'm making this: Chicken Wellington with Country Cranberry Pecan Stuffing - Rock Recipes -The Best Food & Photos from my St. John's, Newfoundland Kitchen.
I've been wanting to make this for a while now, and as 3 of my kids have will have just finished their first week of school at the university, I thought this would be a fitting meal to celebrate. (I love to celebrate!) :-)
