This is one of those long-cooking dishes that I love doing during the winter.
For those of you not fond of pork, be warned…. This is a double pig dish.
For those of you who love pork… This is a melt-in-the-mouth, chock-a-block with flavor dish.
The best part is… It’s a 15 minutes of prep and then ignore it … Continue reading.....
One of the results of eating with the seasons is, sometimes, one feels like one is stuck on the same page.
I had a bumper crop of acorn squash this year, and very few butternut squash.
As the acorn only have about half the storage life as the butternut, we’re eating those first.

Some have stopped completely… The Ananas never got started; it only produced one tomato.
And the Noir de Crimea, with it’s dark greeninsh black shoulders, has given up.
