Pork loin with pomegranate sauce; green beans with ginger – 25 December 2011

Well, we planned three meals today but should have planned only two. Given we had breakfast at about 10:30 and lunch at 3, we had a hard time getting hungry for dinner. And of course there were the Christmas Cookies in between… So we ended up eliminating the sweet potatoes from the menu, and just having the pork loin and the green beans that we had planned on, as well as my Christmas wine.

Both of these recipes are from Gourmet: Pork-Tenderloin-with-Pomegranate-Sauce, and Green Beans with Ginger Butter.

We liked both of them. For the Pomegranate sauce, R says one Tbsp vinegar (the recipe calls for 1 – 2 Tbsp) was enough. I agree.

For my first (I assume?) Christmas wine of the new Present, a Calstar Anderson Valley Pinot Noir from 2007. It was great, and remarkably had little difficulty with the pomegranate sauce.

We had Christmas cookies for dessert. 10 kinds!!!!!
