Recently, chickens everywhere starter squawking at me to get my hand out of their hen house and cook another animal for a change. Slightly nervous but still sympathetic, I walked around the butchery section at the store and eventually settled on pork instead.
I invited my old roommate over as motivation to make a meaty dish because, well, it’s more fun to cook for friends! She and I ended up side by side in my cramped one-butt kitchen after she sweetly offered to help. She chopped veggies while supervising me slicing the pork and browning it in the skillet. After tossing all of the ingredients together in a homemade vinaigrette (and snapping some photos, of course!), we sat down to enjoy our dinner and catch up.
Really, is there anything better than good food and great friends?
