Yup, another Sunday Dinner party tonight. I’m looking forward to using our new red wine glasses and also our new salt and pepper shaker… Our engagement party was like Christmas I tell you!
This week it’s a roast pork recipe that The Runner found during the week on Goodfood.com.au. The link is here if you want to check it out. It looks pretty yummy and delicious. It’s currently in the fridge marinating in herbs, spices, and orange juice. I’m going to do roast potatoes, sweet potatoes, and apples on the side with some wilted spinach. Should be tasty! Oh and I’m going to attempt Nigella Lawson’s Olive Oil Chocolate Cake for dessert. I’ve never made an Olive oil chocolate cake for dessert but hopefully it turns out well. If not, there’s always Kurtosh and Cold Rock Ice Creamery around the corner.
I’m also planning ahead and making Smitten Kitchen’s beef brisket in the slow cooker for tomorrow night. It already smells delicious and it still has another 6 hours to cook! I LOVE beef brisket, but sadly it’s really hard to find here in Australia. My mom used to make it all the time in an oven bag with french onion soup and it’s amazing. This recipe is more of a sweet-sour-BBQ type thing which sounds yummy too! We went to the Meat Emporium yesterday so not only does our freezer resemble a treasure trove of meat, we were able to get some lovely cuts like brisket that our normal butcher never seems to have.
I should probably get back to cooking, I’ve just done a quick calculation and based on the size of the pork and how long the cake will take to bake in the oven, I should have put it in 30 minutes ago in order to have dinner ready before 8…..uh-oh!
