A special dinner

There are two things that when I prepare them I feel like we are having a special dinner. The first is a really good pasta, salad and bread. The other is a roast with ALL the trimmings. Last night our garden obliged and gave us a nice little harvest...we couldn't use all of this but we ate the beans and gems with an organic pork shoulder roast.

I made sage and onion gravy as well as apple sauce to go along with the meat, rice and veggies.

I added some stick cinnamon and nutmeg which filled the house with a delicious fragrance.

A little later today I am going to grate up the 5 huge marrows we picked and freeze almost all of it. The one will go into a chocolate zucchini cake...if it's a success I will post the recipe here.

Your dinners always look so wonderful. There is just nothing like harvesting your own food and preparing it immediately.

Thanks for sharing.
