Sometimes dessert leads the way when planning our weekly Saturday night gathering menu. This week my husband had a hankering for some oatmeal raisin cookies. I said I’d make them on Saturday night. Then we finished up a particularly delicious batch of macaroni and cheese so we, obviously, needed to make more. Pork loin was on sale and then it was just a matter of choosing from the items at the farm stand to fill-in the rest of the menu.
