my housemate flieschy is one of the hardest working people I know… and she had a day off.
we decided to do a roast. but what roast? my favourite is lamb. I love beef. I also love sweet potatoes and kumara and pumpkin. I have also been dreaming of corned beef, though not strictly or even remotely a roast, it still fits in as one of those traditional family meaty dinners that I LOVE.
we went for roast pork, cause neither of us have done it before & it presented a challenge. we cut off the rind for crackling. we ground up salt and garlic & rosemary in the mortar and pestle. we rubbed it in. we left it wrapped in the fridge for a few hours. we rubbed salt into the crackling. we made appley red cabbage. we roasted it with all those veges. it was amazing. especially with the feijoa & apple jelly I made last week. THANK YOU PIGGY. & thank you Hec for the feijoas.
then we ate the self-saucing chocolate pudding that I made.
what else? apart from gloating (SORRY) about good food... not much. trying to take advantage of hard rubbish to clean up this house. it is a huge old house with crazy big high ceilings and wide hallways & I love it. but it’s been a share house for a long time. a stylists nightmare... the HORROR. i want to have a sacrifial burning of a few items... yeah it needs a serious clean-up. & we’ve started. but it’s hard not to also bring more stuff home. damn it. hard rubbish.
