tasty tuesday ~ mary's pork roast with garlic and rosemary...

You all know about my husbands love affair with all things pork. Last week was a tough one with Miss Courtney fighting some viral nastiness and by Thursday both Jerry and I just needed a quite moment to just reconnect with one another. So I prepared a simple and flavorful meal of a roast pork with rosemary and garlic alongside some roasted winter veggies. We sat down at the table and enjoyed a lovely meal and wonderful conversation. Just what we both needed. The meat was moist and the roasted herbs made it all the better.

Now that it is officially fall, this recipe will enter my menu rotation at least once a month. I see pairing it with roasted beets or a fabulous creamed spinach or a fresh cole slaw and of course many different types of potatoes. It just goes with so much.

So happy fall y'all!! It's my favorite season of the year. I can't wait to get baking and roasting and apple-saucing and just all things fall. LOVE! LOVE! LOVE!
