If it isn’t, it is sure close!
Pete made supper tonight. I tried, but couldn’t quite accomplish it (see my chat note from earlier today), so I talked him through, telling him how I would have done things. This was a supper made up of 4 out of my 10 favorite foods: pork, cabbage, squash, and onions. But the result was SO wonderful, moreso than it would have been had I been able to complete the meal I’m sure!
First he prepared the head of cabbage by cutting it – and a sweet onion – up and tossing them together with olive oil, Happy Salt,* and Everything But The Bagel seasoning. Then he prepared 2 small acorn squash by halving them, scooping out the seeds, brushing olive oil on them, and sprinking them with S&P, cinnamon, and “Lakanto Golden” (just what I call it, the real name is a lot longer), wrapping them in foil, and roasting them @ 375F for an hour. Meanwhile he put the big sheet pan of cabbage and onions in the other oven @ 375F for 30 minutes, then a good stir, then 400F for a further 30 minutes. This makes sure we have plenty of the sweet crispy blackened pieces and we don’t have to fight over them – we both LOVE those! During the last 20 minutes or so he fried up a pork steak for me.
*Happy Salt is a seasoning blend that I picked up at one of the Amish groceries we shop at. The ingredients listed are salt, pepper, and spices. It is delicious on just about everything!
Everything tasted so good! I don’t remember when I’ve enjoyed a meal so much! I’d been planning this dinner for days and was excited about it when today finally came…then disappointed when I couldn’t cook it…then thankful when Pete offered to do it…then thrilled and delighted at the outcome! I think it was even better than if I’d have prepared it myself.
Also, like the very poor blogger than I am, I didn’t take any pictures. I just wanted to eat and everything else left my mind. Sorry.
So now I’m happily stuffed, enjoying my nighttime cup of tea, and getting ready to get ready for bed. I hope your supper, whatever it was, was amazing also!
