Sunday Dinner-Pork roast

Since we agree that the biggest meal of the day should be called the dinner, the noon meal on Sunday is our biggest Sunday meal-thus our Sunday dinner. Sunday supper is waffles or pancakes......

Roast Pork-
Rice and Gravy
Hot vegetable - Broccoli/Cauliflower
      sprinkled with cheese
Spinach/leaf lettuce salad with
      carrot and celery slices
Home made rolls
Fudge Ice cream dessert

Directions: Fresh pork roast, season with salt and pepper and add about 1/4 to 1/2 inch of water to the bottom of the pan, bake covered in a 325 degree oven from about 9:30 until 12:00 (2 and1/2 hours). There is usually very little fat, so we make a flour based gravy with the drippings in the pan. 

Story:  We are looking for a Sunday dinner that is easy and quick and the dinner preparation can either be done the day before, or early in the morning before leaving for meeting.
This meal is a good 'winter meal', it's almost always good, and fairly inexpensive to make.
We start with a Fresh pork loin sirloin end roast. This is about $2.29 a pound and easily feeds 4-6 people. We plan on left overs for stir fry or pork sandwiches the next day.
This Sunday we
served Fudge Ice cream dessert
