Pork with Lemon & Mustard, Slow Cooker; seedlings

I found one more slow cooker recipe when I was organizing my work today. As it’s a rainy day it seemed a good time to post it,

My seedlings and I are getting rather tired of the rain. We all would like a little sunshine.

I managed to order charcoal online but mon mari prefers not to be out cooking in the rain.

I made this shortly after lock-down went into effect. I still had a fresh lemon that needed to be used.

If I have lemon I have to add capers.

I have made slow cooker pork with capers in the past – and posted it, but this one is a slightly different. I added mustard, different herbs and not as many capers – working with the pantry….

You could easily do it in a skillet with pork tenderloin or chicken breasts.

Speaking of seedlings looking for sunshine…. here are mine.

On the right are 16 tomato plants which, hopefully, will be ready to go in the ground by May 15th (the unofficial planting date for tomatoes here in France)

On the left are all the squashes, summer and winter, which will go in the ground as soon as they get their 4th leaf.

Some of them are a little slow…..:

It’s hard to believe, but those 2 trays of seedlings will provide all of our soups and vegetables for the better part of summer, all of fall and most of winter.

Isn’t nature wonderful ?

  1. Nature would be a bit more wonderful in my mind if it would cooperate a bit more this year. We’ve finally gotten past freezing, and are now into the rain, rain and more rain. *sigh*

    And your recipe looks delish! I had green bean soup on the menu for the end of the week so warm or cold, that’s what we’ll be having. Beyond that, it’s just a day to day thing around here though hubs is supposed to go back to work starting Monday. We’ll see…

    • We’re had so much rain I’m starting to get concerned. We can’t get anything done outside. I’m hoping for better this week, I love green bean soup – and the best thing is that the hubs hates it so I get it all myself!
