Pork Roast.....!

Well Gang , We are making a Pork Roast this evening for dinner, More on that Later. We hope all had a great Valentines day.........It was our anniversary also. That's correct Valentines Day and our anniversary. We had a great night here at the Camp in the Adirondacks. We 1st thought that we might go out to the local ski mountain, Royal Mountain just down the road from us, the Ski Patrol was having a fund raiser . Food from 6-8 and then a local band after that. The other option was one of the local restaurants here in Caroga who was having a D.J. for Valentines Day. Us being "Older Folks" tried to hold out til later in the night before going out for dinner cause if we go out too early we will be home by 6:30 and done for the night. We thought that Jen , Ali and me might hit the road around 6:30 and "DRIVE SLOW" to one of the two places that I mentioned , have dinner and be back....Say 9 o'clock? Which is late for us. Then come home and get a movie on HBO ON DEMAND , two more hours and we end up our day 10:30 or 11 pm and we are not looking too bad...Right? At about 6Pm while hanging around the Living room here at the camp and watching T.V. that ......."LETS COME UP WITH ANOTHER PLAN" is starting to be crossing our minds separately, Ali has already bailed on going out for dinner and given us her blessing on the subject of going out for dinner. I breach the subject about another plan and Jen Jumps at " SOMETHING ELSE" too. The plan now is to get Take Out and eat here, then a Movie on HBO. Now what do we do for Dinner? Remember we are in the Adirondacks and lQQking for take out. We decided on Apple Bee's down in Johnstown which is 20 Min's away down the mountain. Jen places the order and I'm out the door at 6:15 for the pick and hungry . I did the 20 Min's in 15 and at the Apple Bee's "to go"side door early hoping they are..."Waiting For Me!" No such Luck...... I pay and at 7:20 leaving to head back for the Camp with our dinner. But 1st a short drive to the liquor store for a bottle of wine. It our anniversary and Valentine's Day. It's close to 8 pm and I'm walking into the front door with "TAKE OUT". WHoo HOooooo? Nah, not so bad...Here with the girls at the camp, food will soon be eaten. Wine too for Jen and Me... and a good movie. There is Just something about eating "TAKE OUT" for dinner....Not left overs, but your dinner. It brought back remembrances of eating in the squad room at work . The only thing that saved it was that I had Jen and Ali here . We ended up then Picking on HBO "The Secret Lives of Bees" Great Choice! We Loved It!!!!! See it if you can, we had read the book first. All in All.... we had a Great Night here in the Camp. Well back to the" Pork Roast". Do this and you will love it.. In a roasting pan, empty a large can or bag of sauerkraut with juices, 3 bay leaves and one large onion cut up, diced some what. Here's the secret ingredient , 3 cubes of beef bullion warmed in 2 cups of water ( Microwaved) and poured onto sauerkraut, mix all and spread out in baking pan. Then add 1/2 to 3/4 tea spoon of Caraway seed on top of that mix. Then on top of your sauerkraut mix place a loin of pork ( 1,1/2 to 2 pounds) and cook covered at 325 for 40 Min's, after that mix sauerkraut around, return to oven uncovered until internal temp reaches 160 degree's . Add what ever side dishes you want and enjoy!!!! Til Next time gang....Jerry
