I know a lot of you are still having weather issues.  Sorry, so sorry.

Here in AZ, we’ve been in the triple digits for weeks.  I’m not bragging, just stating the facts.  Most nights I put stuff on the grill and we eat on the patio.  It’s not cool, but at least the sun is at the front of the house, not the yard.

This weekend, as with all weekends, my husband is working.  I’m done for the month, just a few little things here and there to set up for the start of another thankfully busy couple of weeks in June.  

Tonight though, no grill.  I’m putting a rack of pork loin in the oven.  While looking for tonight’s feast I found this small roast on the shelf wrapped in paper!  Of course it was in plastic underneath, but my best guess-dh was putting a lot of  proteins away and didn’t think about re-wrapping it one little second.

It was dated 12/13/12.  In short, I was pretty incapacitated and didn’t care what he bought or how he put it away.

No matter.  Our daughter-in-law is working, so our son will be coming over to enjoy the dinner with us.  He asked for noodle pudding, so I’ve got that ready to go into the lower oven while the roast and veggies are in the upper one.

I’ve made a base of the usual suspects:  celery, carrots, onions and garlic with sea salt and cracked pepper.  I coated the roast in the salt, pepper and garlic as well.  For extra flavoring, I put about a cup of white wine in the bottom of the roaster.

In case you‘re wondering-we have realized that through the years we’ve brought back a lot of wine/champagne from our cruises.  I don’t know why-we don’t drink!

Figured that I better start cooking with them before I go from several bottles of wine to several bottles of vinegar.  That really wouldn’t be so bad-I do make a lot of my own salad dressings.  And the bottles will make a great acid for marinades as well.

I know our daughter-in-law will be upset about missing the noodle pudding-so I’m going to put a big note on the fridge to send home enough for her to enjoy for a couple of meals.

For dessert-made some low-fat, healthy oatmeal and goody cookies. Those two were created by seeing the tidbits in my pantry.

Now I can start fresh and eat well at the same time.

May all of you be able to spend the day honoring our troops from yesteryear,the present and the future.

Love it
