Time to make a Cake around here!
Today was a day just for cooking!.....Last night I put a fresh pork on with a lot of spices(Vinegar,salt,Habenero pepper with crushed garlic, and Sprigs of fresh Rosemary
from the Garden of "Almost an Acre" :o) just thought I'd add that in...
I tried this once before and it worked out terrific...only last time i didn't add vinegar...big mistake....this time the flavor was out of this world...I'm going to give you the secret...(no charge)..I put the FROZEN pork roast in the pot with all the goodies and put the gas flame on LOW! and it cooked all night....stayed in one piece and then I put it in the 400 oven for about 15 minutes to brown wrapped it Aluminum foil and let it sit for a bit! My new Trick! Don't have to worry about boiling over etc. I could have even used my Crock pot it would have fit and would do the same thing....I keep forgetting I have that pot :o) somebody is getting old..I made a pot of Black eyed peas, and Collards mixed with other greens from our garden
and a pint of Candied yams from the freezer..no rice..Felt like I had enough starch.The cake turned out delicious....made my own frosting without a recipe (bet I can't do that again:o) would you believe I put some chocolate in the microwave to melt and the darn thing burned :o( I just threw it out and made up my own..Micky loved it too!....I added pecans in it almost like a "Sock it to Me" Cake.it;s good as it looks :o)
