Saturday night – 01/17/2015

This was the first Saturday night at our place for 2015 so I went with a fairly easy menu. I’m happy with how everything turned out. I even remembered to add the parsley to the fennel salad.

Cajun-rubbed Pork Loin
Mashed potatoes
Steamed carrots and parsnips with browned butter and toasted sesame seeds
Fennel Salad
Homemade Applesauce

Giant Cranberry Cookie
“Blue” Jello

13 gathered for dinner this week (9 adults; 4 kids).

A couple of our friends were recovering from dental work so there’s an emphasis on softer foods. I might have roasted the carrots, for example, however that leaves lovely crispy bits which are no fun in a sour mouth.

The jello was by request. It’s not something we normmally make. Jiggly sugar water the color of smurfs; what’s not to like.
