Tonight, Pork Roast

It's just the two of us. I don't have to cook anymore.
 We both are struggling with that past middle age battle with the scale. He still has to eat out with clients and such. Me, I have to watch my carbs and take off this past winter's extra pounds...oh, my...winter is coming back isn't it? Well, anyway,tonight I want to make pork roast, potatoes (just a few) ..I'll skip the gravy and corn...but I need the sauerkraut (Frank's) to make the meal complete. Oh, add a side salad and some applesauce, too.
While I was out running errands this morning something in the air took me back to 58th and St. Louis Avenue...childhood.  I was chilly and wet as I walked to my walking home from school so many years ago.  We could always count on mom to have a tasty hot meal for us when we got there. 
Our favorite was pork roast, mashed potatoes and corn.. thanks mom


  1. Oooooh!! Would my husband ever love to be eating at your house tonight!! I have become such a bored and apathetic cook. I really need to try and do better!! He deserves it!!

  2. Oh yum! Isn't it a good feeling when something comes back to you like that. That happens to me too. And with the pork roast, sometimes I even get my grandma's old heavy heavy aluminum roaster down off the shelf and make the pork roast in that, that I remember, with that dark gooey stuff that roasts on it. yum again.

  3. April, I so appreciate you sharing your mom and grandma with me. I've adopted them.
