Pork roast slabs cooked in soup; parsley potatoes; green beans with almonds; cole slaw – 4 January 2011

R was back at Mom’s for one night and she wanted to cook something he’d enjoy. She sliced a pork roast into perhaps 3/8″ slices and cooked them in soup – I think cream of mushroom.

It was good. (R used leftover slabs in sandwiches which both of us (separately) took to the airport the next day.)

I suggested making parsley potatoes, and showed her how easy they were. She thought of the French-cut (frozen) green beans with toasted almonds – and of course the ubiquitous Safeway cole slaw made an appearance.

We were hemming and hawing about whether to open another red wine or make do with leftover bits, when brother said “if you are looking for an excuse to open a bottle…”  So we did 😉 R and I wanted to try the Chateau Saint-Sulpice Bordeaux. It was fine, but not spectacular, unfortunately.
