Last night I was not up for making dinner, so Theresa made dinner when she got home. It was a quick and easy meal, but as always, really good. Barbeque pork with cornbread and coleslaw. I think this betrays some of our southern food background, if only a little.
I will admit that I don’t remember exactly everything that Theresa put in the meal. I was a little whoozy and giddy at the time. However, I will say that Theresa had the fantastic idea of making BBQ pork from leftover fresh ham from Sunday. She cut it up and cooked it in sugar, apple cider vinegar, salt, mustard, and homemade tomato paste (dried tomatoes rehydrated and blended until a paste). She made cornbread and then another fantastic idea: make a BBQ pork cornbread sandwich. She sliced the cornbread in half, sliced some cheese to go on it, and layered the pork very snuggly into the cornbread and cheese.
That was just plain good. For dessert, we had the last of the strawberry rhubarb buckle or betty or whatever. We ate it with maple syrup, and it was quite divine. I think that I might request Theresa make some more in the near future.
Ah, good food, in times of need. Although I’ve been a bit out of it being sick, things are looking up. I’m feeling a bit better, and the weather is actually getting pretty nice if you ask me. Now I just have to decide what I’m making for dinner tonight……
