So, I should have remembered to take a picture of this before we totally devoured it, because it was actually quite pretty. It was a lightly breaded and roasted pork loin, cooked in shallots, sherry and broth with a cream sauce and almonds. Seriously, probably the best thing I've ever cooked. Finally! Some success! And I didn't even burn anything down, which would have been par for the course this month.
By popular demand, I cooked the torte. It was all we dreamed of and more. Strawberries were very good this week, so I could have made the other, but I'm glad we had this, though it is rich as hell and sits in my stomach like a devilish chocolate brick while insisting that I go eat some more, because, after all, it's low carb.
See my seeds? Yeah, I know you do.
