This has been one of those weeks where I haven’t done much cooking. Last Wednesday we went out for dinner with our neighbours. Thursday I had a craving for a hot dog, so, on the way home from work. I stopped and pick up European wieners and a baguette. TIP: If you are like me and you don’t like regular hot dog buns, try cutting a baguette to size. Most baguettes will yield three buns.
Moe was not feeling well on Friday so I made him a pot of potato leek soup and Saturday night we had a pork dinner. I presalted a small rack of pork Thursday night and covered it in plastic wrap. I unwrapped it Friday night so that it could air dry and before work Saturday, I rubbed it generously with fresh garlic, sage and lots of black pepper. Moe put it in a 375°F oven shortly before I got home from work so I just had to prepare the sides. Served it with mashed potatoes, buttered peas, a baked sweet potato and of course lots of gravy.
