Pork Carnitas

Last night, Sean was concerned that we were eating so many different kinds of foods (e.g. Thai, Mexican, Indian).  I felt a little sorry for him, because tonight’s menu was another “Mexican” meal.  Happily for him, he liked it, and tonight said that he’s lucky to live in a family that eats so many different things.

I looked through several recipes last week, and decided to try this recipe for Pork Carnitas Continue reading

Mark fried up some bacon, chopped the pork chop, and mixed up some delicious Pork Fried Rice.  I don’t know what his technique or seasonings were, but I did catch sight of several lovely ingredients:

carrots and onions

Wednesday Stir Fry – Pork!

Mark, the stir-fry guru, whipped another yummy dinner.  We rarely use pork for stir fry, but it was delicious.

Out of water chestnuts, Mark used extra celery.

Tortillas, etc.

Homemade tortillas- I pressed them with the tortilla press to get started, but then rolled them out much more thinly.  Best effort to date.

We ate these with shredded cheese, mixed beans (from last year’s Garden), rice, and pork (last of a package of gristly chops I bought and froze- they weren’t very good, but tasted ok cooked, pulling what good meat I could off of the bone, then cooking with tomato sauce, hot peppers, and tomatillos (all from the Garden)).

Mark liked it.  I think it’s a lot of work for an ok meal.

We watched lots of episodes of Kate and Allie on netflix while I cooked; that was fun 🙂
