I was completely incapable of cooking rice without burning it when I first met Byron. Over the last 20 years I have quickly realised that it is very easy to keep him madly in love with me. Have you heard the expression "The way to a man's heart is through his stomach" ? It was written about Byron. Most meals that are put in front of him are eaten with exclamations of appreciation. He really is very easily pleased.
This week in particular I hit upon a magic combination. Spice, meat and beer. All it took was a pork leg rolled in brown sugar, mustard powder and paprika, a bottle of beer poured on top and 90 minutes in my trusty pressure cooker and he was in heaven. The pork was amazingly moist and tasty, served on crusty bread rolls and with a side salad of some random things in the fridge. Grated carrots and apples, cucumber, craisins and orange juice. Not only did he have seconds but thirds too. It's a good job we still do the 5:2 intermittent fasting or there would be twice as much of him to love!!!
