Sunday Dinner

This was actually a few weeks ago. Today I'm cheating and making easy chili and cornbread. I may take photos, but it's not really different than anyone else's recipe, I bet!

Herbed Roast Pork and Gravy
Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes
Wilted Baby Spinach with Honey and Bacon
Apple Cobbler

Pork roast, thyme and rosemary.


Salt and pepper the roast first--rub it all over well.


Chop the herbs and cover the roast with those as well.


The roast seared on all sides and ready for the oven.


Roasting garlic--3 cloves in a small square of tin foil.


Wrap up and toss in a 400 degree F oven for about 20 minutes until soft. Mash well before adding to potatoes.


The mashed potatoes with roasted garlic added--these are Yukon Gold.


Spinach with bacon and honey. This was really yummy--even if the photo is blurry.


Another blurry-but-yummy - the pork roast gravy.

I didn't get a photo of the finished roast or the cobbler, but they were sure good!
