Crown Roast of Pork and the Weekly Menu

This gorgeous and easy to make roast is perfect for a gathering with family and friends as you ring in the New Year.

Let's get ready for 2020.........

Bring it to the table in all it's glory as you say grace and toast family and friends, then take it back into the kitchen and slice it into these gorgeous, tender, juicy chops.  So impressive and so easy peasy.

I served this up for our family dinner on the Sunday before Christmas and then we enjoyed the leftovers as bbq pork sandwiches the next day.

My regular readers know that in our household we start celebrating the Christmas Season with Thanksgiving, followed by St. Nick Day with lot's of entertaining before Christmas arrives on December 25th.  This is the first day of Christmas and Christmas doesn't end until the Epiphany on January 6th each year.  We give and attend numerous celebrations during those 12 days including New Year's Eve and New Year's Day 

This year we are heading north to celebrate the New Year with our Traverse City family.  I'm excited to see them.  They spent the Christmas holidays in Mexico so we can hear all about their trip and envy their tans.  

Tonight John and Kirsten will be bringing their family to join us for dinner.  Their son Mike and his wife Amy, whom you might know from Amy's Cooking Adventures are in from North Dakota for the holidays.

Sunday we are meeting our friends Kim and Kurt for dinner at a local restaurant.  Tuesday we are heading to our TC family and stopping on the way to meet our friends Bob and Cathy for lunch.

So here is the Weekly Menu, below which you will find the recipe for the pork crown roast.  Merry Christmas all.........
