Dinner Wed. 3/20/19

With the recent talk about Kalua Pork, I've been inspired today.

I like doing mine in my Nesco Roaster as it works better for me than a crockpot or the oven. When the meat is done and removed, I can hike up the temp. and steam the cabbage we like with it in the juices from the flavorful pork. I'll make some steamed Jasmine rice, and also my Pineapple Salsa for the sides.



What's in your plan for dinner tonight?

SO has a craving for orange chicken. Fortunately there is a bag in the freezer. I'll add sugar snap peas, mushrooms, carrots, pepper and onion to round it out. It will be served over white rice.

We also love that Orange Chicken Andy. Do you add additional orange juice to the sauce packets?

No, I don't. We don't keep OJ in the house. I have some halos or cuties or whatever in the house, maybe I'll squeeze one or zest it.

We're having friends over...pot roast is in the slow cooker and sourdough bread is cooling on the counter. A month ago we were briefly in CA where we stopped at a date store; picked up all kinds of goodies. Will thaw a tin of baklava for dessert.
