Roast pork redux

Eastside Road, December 20, 2010—

EXACTLY THE SAME dinner as yesterday; we'd cooked enough for twice as many people. I guess that means tomorrow will be the same. I did steam a few more Brussels sprouts; otherwise there was nothing more to be done; Lindsey warmed up the leftover potatoes and carrots, and we ate cold sliced roast pork, and why not?

The evening did give us the chance to test the hypothesis I'd just read somewhere the other day, that desserts always improve on standing and should therefor be prepared a day in advance. Indeed, Reine de Saba was even better tonight.
