January 24th – Sunday Supper

The mercury took another major dip this morning.  It is a good day to stay inside and do laundry.  Unfortunately for Dan, we also need groceries so he is out into the cold and onto the icy roads to go shopping this morning.

With our weather as mild as it was yesterday, the snow on the patio packed down considerably before I got out to shovel a path for Kat.  Needless to say, it weighed a ton – and I have to throw it about six feet over a pile of snow to get it off the patio and onto the garden area. Kat got half her path cleaned, I got a sore shoulder, and it is what it is until until our weather moderates again.  🙂

Yesterday, being Sunday, seemed like a good day to make a real meal for supper.    I took out a generous  package of stewing beef to make gnocchi stew.  After defrosting the beef for a couple of hours, I realized we were out of gnocchi, so….. stuffed pork roast it was.

Spreading out the stuffing…
Rolled up and oven ready… (Have I mentioned I love our new stove?)
Making gravy – I only mention it because I really like my gravy mixer.  It came free on a bottle of wine, but it was worth the price of the wine.
Stuffed roast pork with mushroom sauce, mashed potatoes and gravy, mixed vegetables – and another glass of the Pelee Island Merlot.

That is it for today. Take care and have a great day!

  1. Well, that looks delicious! I was curious about the Pelee Island wine. The bird on their bottle of merlot is very attractive! Kat is fortunate to have a half-clear path so I am sure she is grateful for your effort. Ours are bigger dogs, so they do not seem to mind the snow and like to run across the yard in it. But of course, there is not 2 feet of it. 🙂

  2. Thank you! Pelee Wine is a good Canadian brand. That bird is a Pelee Island hummingbird. Our last dog, Casey was a Pomski (American Eskimo/Pomeranian). She loved the snow. Kat does not. She will be happy to see it gone.

  3. Wow, your dinner looks so delicious, Ann Marie! I adore gravy and taters! Pelee wine, eh? Are the grapes grown on or near Point Pelee in Ontario? When I briefly lived in Ontario years ago, a trip to the point was always nice. Please don’t exert yourself too hard, you don’t want serious back pain or worse! You did a great job of making Kat a path. ❤️🇨🇦

  4. Thank you, Carol Anne! It’s not that bad! Dan does most of the shoveling. I can’t shovel when it is really cold because of lung issues. I just shoveled this time because it was nice out and Dan was working. 🙂


  5. I honestly didn’t notice (it was a roast Dan bought). I sliced it into three sections (without cutting all the way through), if that makes sense, and then pounded it with a meat tenderizer to flatten it out. (Obviously I had to take the string off of it before I sliced it. ). I have used pork tenderloin, sliced it in half, and then pounded it out flat.
