Oysters and Pork
When my husband and I first started seeing each other, we ate out a lot. One thing we enjoyed doing was going to one restaurant just for apps, then to another for the main. This sort of “restaurant hopping” allowed us to get the best of both worlds and saved us the painful act of having to actually make a choice (oh poor us).
We don't do that much anymore. But we do still enjoy getting the best of both worlds. And on Friday night, that's just what we did. We actually had company coming over. But before they arrived, we snuck over to the Whalesbone for some oysters and beer. Yum!
Shortly after we got back home, our friends arrived. Donnie brought the meat (thanks Donnie!). A delicious hunk of pork stuffed with spinach, red pepper, ham and cheese. It almost seemed like pork stuffed with breakfast, the only thing missing was the eggs. He picked up these lovely rounds of meat from the Glebe Meat Market. My husband cooked them on the barbecue and served them with heavenly garlic, pureed cauliflower and sweet potato fries. What a great way to start the weekend!
