This is it.
The culmination of 16 days of a swine-laden life.
Back in June when I moved to my swank Bella Vista abode- I offered to make lance romance dinner-=anything he wanted.
He chose porkloin, mashers, and green beans.
Could there be a more ideal way to end Porktoberfest other than me donning an apron and spending a couple hours in the kitchen? I think not.
I marinated the porkloin in rosemary, garlic, Salt, Pepper, and Dunkel Lager.
I threw some mustard powder into the smashed potatoes and tons of cheese.
Green beans--I did Julia Child style- boiling till tender than sauteeing them up with olive oil and garlic.
I was quite pleased. We shared a bottle of Malbec- which was good, but Dunkel lager or Saison would have made a great pairing as well.
I should go on a diet now...but I won't. Phils are gonna take it...and there's plenty of wings to be had.
Thanks for following Porktoberfest 2009.
