Weekend family dinners have been something I look forward to. After the family has had their long week of school and work, it’s been great to sit down to a nice dinner with everyone to catch up and relax. I especially enjoy preparing the meal with the weekends to take my time and not rush.
Not too long ago, I made this pork loin roast and it filled the kitchen with some wonderful smells as it cooked. The key to the great flavor was the combination of spices you may already have in your pantry – salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder and ground mustard. If you have leftovers, they make a great addition to a warm bowl of ramen soup!
