Pork roast & potatoes

Tomorrow I’m going to the seaside, it’s been a long time coming. I’m mixing business with pleasure as they say, a bit of work on my projects, a bit of relaxing and a whole lot of cooking. The only thing I’m hoping for is good weather, sun in the sky, a cloud nowhere to be seen and sound of the ocean rolling over pebbles on the beach.

There is nothing like a small vacation during the semester to give me some energy to continue with my studies. I won’t be just relaxing, I also have to work on a project involving Raspberry Pi for my Bachelor’s degree in Mechatronics and Robotics. People I’ve met were always stunned or surprised by the field that I study in and my passion for cooking, but I think that if you can find the time to do both or more, why not have more than one interest in life.

Let’s get to the recipe – this is certainly a Sunday family dinner recipe. In my family we do it really often and my mother passed me the recipe. There are just a few ingredients included and it’s easy to make. Of course it’s delicious since it combines tasty vegetables with a delicious piece of meat. Try it out, tell me what you think, if I don’t post until Easter – happy Easter and have a great weekend!
