It’s a new year!

What’s the best  way to usher in the new year??

With food of course!! (Besides copious amounts of fireworks).

So on the last day of 2014, I decided to end the year with happiness 🙂 … and roast pork with crackling, which is basically edible happiness. And since slaving away on a hot day is not associated with happiness,  I tried to keep it simple and stuffed it with an easy mixture of rosemary, thyme, onion, garlic and fresh bread crumbs. I also added a couple sploshes of marsala before rolling the stuffing up with the pork. After wrestling the hunk of meat into a bind-able form, I massaged some olive oil and salt into the skin and whacked it into the oven to roast.

And in order to clear out some left over veges in the fridge, I served it with some roasted cauliflower and red cabbage. My attempt to be a little bit healthy 😛

But ooo look at that juicy fatty pork..mmmm

By the way, I’m not sure how people cut out perfect rounds of roast pork, because my knife has trouble cutting through crackling and the whole thing kind of fell apart the harder I tried.


And so 2014 has passed and slipped into history, hopefully 2015 will be one that is meaningful and joyful for you all!

And yay I get to start the year with roast pork sandwiches
