Lazy Sunday Dinners

On a  lazy Sunday I like to make one pot dinners. This past Sunday it was raining and coolish so this dinner hit the spot.


Ingredients:

2 small washed and diced yams
2 small washed and diced russett potatoes
1 1/2 peeled and roughly chopped yellow onions
1 large stalk of celery, washed and quartered
2 medium carrots, washed, peeled and quartered
1 head of garlic with outer skins peeled off and top of head sliced off
1 medium pork roast
salt and pepper

After preparing the vegetables, place the celery, carrots and onions in the center of a baking dish. Then place the pork roast on top and put some coarsely ground pepper and salt on the top to season. Spread the remaining ingredients around the roast and season with more salt and pepper. Cover and cook in a 400 F oven for 1.5 to 2 hours until everything is nicely cooked and the pork is soft and crumbly.

  3. Your pork roast looks delish! It is something I will think of the next time I do a pork roast.

  4. Thank you Susan. I had the pork roast for Sunday dinner and ate too much! It is well worth the minimal effort it takes to make and is even great for inviting guests over (just add a starter and a light dessert).

  5. OH that looks so yummy....I enjoy pork...

    I read your post on Kamloops....I have a dear friend who lives in Kamloops who I visit often....especially in the winter then we go up to Sun Peaks and go skiing. They also have a place on the Shushwap so in the summer we get to have some fun on the lake....yes Kamloops has really grown up over the years....and it does seem to be a gateway to so many other places in the province...you did a fine job on describing Kamloops!

  6. @Smalltown RN, you have found the best of both worlds, beach life on the coast and winter life in the mountains. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm glad you found my description of Kamloops accurate and thanks for adding the bit about the skiing. With Sun Peaks now in the "neighbourhood", this is a huge bonus for the area.
