You too, live in the State of Oregon. I had gotten the mistaken impression that you were from Texas.
I was initially surprised that you sent me this comment about this recipe, since I am a guy.
I don't cook too much at all. But, sometimes I help my Mom as long as it is not a complicated dish to be prepared.
I like Pork related stuff to eat but not too much of it because like Beef it is a red meat and can lead to a high level of Cholestrol and Triglycerides too.
I love a Sausage Pizza as well as some Local Pork related Recipes and dishes where I am originally from.
I am sort of Health conscious and more so for the last few years.
But, Yes -- "Roasted Suckling Pork" sounds yummy.
I am familiar with Salem, Oregon Yakima which is in the State of Washington, Seattle, and I have some freinds who live near Baker, Oregon.
Have you ever tried "Portuguese Chorizo" ?
Here is the Recipe -- if you are interested.
Portuguese Chorizo and Peppers
2 pounds chorizo sausage, casings removed and crumbled
2 green bell peppers, seeded and chopped
2 sweet onion, peeled and chopped
1 6 ounce can tomato paste
1 cup red wine
1 cup water
2 tablespoons crushed garlic
In a slow cooker, combine the sausage, green pepper, onion, tomato paste, wine, water and crushed garlic.
Stir so that everything is evenly distributed. Cover and set on low.
Cook for 8 hours. Uncover the pot and cook an additional 2 hours to allow some of the liquid to evaporate.
Serve over rice or with Portuguese bread.
Makes 8 servings.
Me to MilesJesu on the health side.
I put my diabetes in remission and lowered the Cholesteral to normal with losing wieght, walking and following the American Diabetes Assc. eating guidelines.
But one can dream. For Easter I was craving Peking Duck. Again thank God I live so far from Portland.
My splurge living on the Coast is Crab and Morro Bay Shrimp with Pica Del Gallo Salsa and fresh cilantro with a 1/2 of an Avacado. Salsa is a free food in the health watch diet choice.
OK now sorry to get off the subject here of our Daily readings and Prayers.
