    What are we cooking?

    I am under snow and it's falling in fat flakes.

    I have a pork loin and a roast beef under consideration.

    What are we doing folks?

    We had pork loin last night, with steamed broccoli, buttered noodles and salad. Delicious! Then we had strawberry frosted chocolate cake for dessert. Was DH's Birthday!! [​IMG]

    Make a dry rub of sage, thyme, salt, lemon zest and rub into that hunk of pork. Cut some slits in the pork and stuff in some cloves of galric and plop it in the crock pot.

    I'd have to go with the roast beef with some mashed potatoes, candied carrots, brussel sprouts, and some homemade bread! [​IMG]

    BTW - You keep that snow up there! I don't want (or need) any of it here. [​IMG]

    My wife asked me the same thing this morning.

    I think she has gotten used to this idea of coming home to a already done dinner. She was so excited yesterday that she didn't have to do anything after working.

    So....I'll be looking for ideas today. All else fails I can make my easy "Deer camp chili" it would go good on a cold day like we are having here.

    When it is snowing (it is here) my kids like soup. They requested homemade chicken-n-noodle. Yes, homemade noodles and some of GumpGirl's warm bread to go with it![​IMG]

    Take the pork loin or roast and make tiny slits in it to insert fennel seeds to stud it. Rub with a dry mixture of sage, sugar, salt pepper, rosemary and thyme. Set in fridge for 5 or so hours then bake in foil. This is absolutely fab!!! My family begs me to make this on special occasions.

    I seared the beef roast on both sides in butter, olive oil and seasonings.

    I add stock and chopped onions.

    It is gently bubbling away on the woodstove.

    I have rolls on the second rise.

    Honey butter is waiting in the wings.

    I have some fingerling potatoes I will prepare for roasting with garlic and onions and olive oil and other seasonsings.

    My kids are trying to talk me out of the brussel sprouts in favor of green beans.

    I'm taking the easy way out tonight.

    Bacon, eggs, hash browns and toast. We call it Breakfast dinner.

    We love breakfast for supper. One of my kids favorite meals. I do it usually once a week for them and sometimes more often on severely cold winter evenings.
