Wine, Potatoes and Pork

Did everyone have a good weekend?  Mine was pretty good.  I finally made it to the wine store to bottle my batch of wine that’s been sitting since January.  I would have gone sooner but its been a busy few weeks.  Now I have 30 bottles of Chardonnay that are ready to be devoured. 

Trevor and I also watched a movie Saturday night. 


Arthur Bishop (Jason Statham) is a 'mechanic' - an elite assassin with a strict code and unique talent for cleanly eliminating targets. It's a job that requires professional perfection and total detachment, and Bishop is the best in the business. But when his mentor and close friend Harry (Donald Sutherland) is murdered, Bishop is anything but detached. His next assignment is self-imposed - he wants those responsible dead. His mission grows complicated when Harry's son Steve (Ben Foster) approaches him with the same vengeful goal and a determination to learn Bishop's trade. Bishop has always acted alone but he can't turn his back on Harry's son. A methodical hit man takes an impulsive student deep into his world and a deadly partnership is born. But while in pursuit of their ultimate mark, deceptions threaten to surface and those hired to fix problems become problems themselves.

I thought it was a good movie.  Lots of action and the story line keeps you interested. 

On on to good eats…..

Every so often I have a craving for a good pot roast.  So on the menu for Sunday night was pork shoulder, yummy scalloped potatoes and veggies for dinner. 


The pork was very juicy, tender and flavourful.  It was a 2 Kg hunk of meat… I have a ton of leftovers, so I’m thinking I’ll get creative with pork for tomorrow’s meal.  I also found a way to make scalloped potatoes on stovetop since my oven was in use for the roast. 

And wait until you get a load of dessert.  It’s the world’s easiest, richest, chocolaty Chocolate cake ever. I guarantee you’ll be on Cloud 9 (or the Chocolate Cloud…either way… it’s pure bliss Smile )


And will you believe me when I tell you the cake is …..


And I only used 4 ingredients…really…that’s it Smile

So this is what happens when Trevor helps me out in the kitchen…. some pictures I find on my camera when I’m uploading them… thanks babe Smile

Although I have no idea where the Shepherd picture came from.  Can you figure out what the 5th picture is? 

























So that’s it for now…I will post the recipes for the roast, potatoes and chocolate cake in the next few days.  I’m actually just heading out the door in the next few minutes for a social. 

But I’m really excited to see our extended forecast too… they are forecasting 5 days of sunshine. 

Anything new in your neck of the woods?  See any good movies as of late?


Take care
