I guess basketball practice was extra tough today, because the boy texted me on his way home to ask if we had food. Meaning, can he eat the minute he walks in the house?
Fifteen minutes later: Slices off a pork roast simmered in cream and Hatch chili salsa, and carrots simmered in beef broth with the last of a package of Sardinian toasted fregola. Served with Japanese rice and frozen peas. (The pork roast, rice and carrots had been cooked previously, so it was just a matter of some a la minute saucier and finishing work.) I wasn't able to take a photo of the plated food.
I also had an appetizer of pears with a beautiful French blue and some sugared walnuts waiting on the table. (No photo).
Confession: I used instant mashed potatoes to thicken the sauce, no time to simmer it down. Yes, @TheCookie, I have instant potatoes in the cupboard, I keep them just for this purpose.
