We went shopping at the Natural in Forest Hills, which was so busy with Flowers for Mom's Day! We bought a 2 1/2 lb. Boneless Loin of Pork and I butterflied it, stuffed it with the fennel, onions, breadcrumb mixture and then retied the roast. While it roasted we tackled the truly ugly celery root aka celeriac or celery knob. (See the picture below) We also prepped the potatoes and green beans and made a gravy with onions, toasted and ground fennel seed, white wine and chicken broth, lightly thickened and reduced.
The table for two:
The finished dinner plate:
The Meyer Lemon Cake:
And the plated slice:
It was a delicious meal and a great day cooking together!
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY NANA AND ALL THE MOM'S NEAR AND FAR!
