After an appointment for a procedure I don't recommend unless really necessary, I happened to find myself on the upper east side, and after a quick lunch of a few slices at PQR (really good again), I moseyed on over to Schaller & Weber. Once there, I spied a good looking pork loin roast, the size of which would've been enough to feed a nice family gathering, but since I was only feeding Significant Eater and myself, I asked for a cut off the small end, containing 3 chops, which the butcher was kind enough to do.

 

I decided to slow roast the loin, and after well-salting/seasoning and allowing the roast to sit in the fridge like that for a good 6 hours or so, it went into a 275℉ oven, for about 2 hours. Here's where timing is interesting; at an hour and 10 minutes, it was registering under 115℉ on an instant read - after that, the temperature shoots up much more quickly per minute than during that first hour...

The broccoli, pan seared and steamed in its own juices. To drink, a 2015 Tenuta de Fessina Erse Etna Rosso - went nicely with the pork.

Fed a crew at church last night. Brunswick stew, beer cheese muffins, corn muffins, sandwiches. Running late when I got it out, so no photos of whole spread, but the sandwiches were homemade pimiento cheese and ham/turkey and cheese on King Arthur multigrain bread.

Had a rather heavy lunch, so a light dinner tonight.

 

Stir fried fresh ramen noodles with duck and leeks. Duck marinated with Shaoxing wine, garlic, ginger and chilli. A splash of soy sauce near the end.

I had a big lunch, so downsized dinner to a cup of Chili with Fried Polenta, served in the bowl I made in a pottery class last month. 😋
