Today was Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. A time-honored day of peace and remembrance. Not to mention a day off from school for many students and teachers. The plan was: cleaning and cooking. Instead I took Arya to the vet (low appetite) and did cooking. The vet isn't as worried as Colin and I are, but she got an antibiotic shot and guidance to go back to the humane society for blood-work if she doesn't perk up soon.
Following the regularly-scheduled menu tonight is:
- Roasted Pork Loin with Apples (How to Boil Water: life beyond takeout p. 172)
- added in an extra apple and a potato to "beef it up"
Roasts aren't difficult, they're easy and delicious one-pot meals. They're time-consuming however. First comes the vegetables.
|Arya doesn't want the veggies.|
|Fammie isn't sure why vegetables are on the ground.|
After the vegetables are skinned, cut, and prepped the meat gets seared and buried in a nest of veggies.
Finally, after the meat is done, it's time to mix up the cider vinegar, apple cider, mustard, butter, and drippings sauce.
Sunday dinner on Monday night:
