Once Thanksgiving is past and winter sets in, do you struggle with what to prepare for Sunday dinner? While I was in Africa, our guide (Dutch/German heritage) said his favorite Sunday dinner was a beef pot roast. What do you know? That’s my oldest son’s favorite too, so maybe westerners the world around love their Sunday pot roast. However, to switch things up a little, in our family, another treat is a German-style, seasoned pork roast with potatoes, onions, and apples sprinkled with cinnamon. To pump up the veggies, you could add a layer of red cabbage and acorn squash on top. Pour in a cup of water, pop in the oven, and let it bake while you’re at church for a couple of hours at 350°F. We love sauerkraut, so I heat some up after we get home, add a little salt and pepper, butter, sour cream, and brown sugar (for the acorn squash), and presto! A great meal with lots of flavor and very little prep!
If you’ve found other roast/veggie/fruit combos that you enjoy, I’d appreciate your sharing ideas in the comment box. My kids have noticed that many of their friends don’t know how to cook, so that’s inspired me to share a few basic ideas for the young adults of the world who are now fending for themselves. Thanks!
