I have this thing about Sunday Dinner. It's probably my nostalgia for times past, but I can't think of anything better than spending the day making a delicious dinner...and it doesn't hurt to have football on in the background.
Dinner tonight is a French-Style Pot-Roasted Pork Roast, Mashed Potatoes, Acorn Squash, Roasted Asparagus and Homemade Applesauce.
I am stuffed to the gills, but it looks so good, I want to eat it all over again.
The recipe for the Pork Roast is from the September-October 2011 Edition of Cook's Illustrated. (If you like to cook and don't have a subscription...get one!)
I followed most of the directions, except I didn't use the unflavored gelatin (cause I didn't have any) and I cooked the roast past the 140 degrees recommended in the recipe. It didn't seem done enough at 140, so I waited until is was 150ish. It was the moistest pork roast I've ever tasted.
Earlier this week, I read on another blog...that she had made homemade applesauce in her crockpot. It sounded so easy-peasy, that I wanted to make it too. Applesauce is a great side dish for pork.
This is one very happy camper. What I great Sunday.
