I LOVE PIE.
I will admit it.
I have learned I love Monkey Bread, too, but that was close to KITCHEN FAIL.... but we don't have to go into that now. Right??? RIGHT????
HERRY PIE RECIPE HERE!!!
But the cherry pie disappeared quickly and it needed a friend... So an Apple Pie joined the cherry pie for delicious goodness! Yay!!!
But that's not the point of this post.
Oh, Ruthy (you say....) Did this post have a point?
It started with one, but it may have taken a right or left turn along the way....
ROASTED PORK AND POTATOES
1 2-3 lb. boneless pork loin
Onion (fresh or dried)
1 can Golden Mushroom soup
1 can beef broth
Sprinkle roast with a generous coating of crushed rosemary, garlic, onion and pepper. There will be plenty of salt with the broth and soup, so I didn't add extra to the meat. Roast the seasoned meat in a good-sized pan at 350° for about an hour...(I used my 12" chicken fryer. It's got a great lid, perfect for steaming/roasting the potatoes in the broth).
After an hour or so, mix soup and broth together... I added a sprinkling of the crushed rosemary and some garlic...
Pour into roasting pan, add large chunk potatoes (or small, salt potatoes) around roast... cover and roast for about another 1 1/2 hours....
I turned the temperature to 400 because I wanted the potatoes to caramelize a little... and they did!
This came out so well, it was absolutely delicious. And it was one pot!!! :) I love one pot meals, and one pot to wash. Bonus!!! Note the new tile floor below... molding went on over the weekend and I got the closet painted... Oh, wait. There's a cute BOY in this picture. A boy dressed for winter.
Hello, boy! :)
And the boy discovered a love for cherry pie... a love he passed on to his baby sister... The Little Princess.
And the boy ate two pieces of pie... and the boy was happy.
We've kissed January goodbye... the days are slowly getting longer. We are BIG FANS of longer days!!!!
And I'm planning far too many summertime jobs (an age-old problem) because I always think I can squirrel away time to get major things done... and usually end up completing the odd MINOR thing and feeling not quite as proud as I could!!! And this innocuous looking box was overlooked in the Great Computer Mouse Hunt, an endeavor that resulted in a new mouse...
And then finding of the old one by daughter Beth, who (as we've often said...) can think like a two-year-old!!!
And that's how we're ending it! It's been a fun, busy, productive week here on the farm... but quiet enough to get some delightfully serious writing done! And... food. Always, always, always... food!
