Yesterday was my husband's birthday. We celebrated with a feast last night. I made sure to include all his favorites - what he likes to call the trifecta (lime, cilantro, and jalapeno) and chocolate. Most of the produce ingredients came from my garden which made me really happy. Ever since I realized my honeydew plant was actually the long-lost tomatillo plant I thought never grew from last season I've been inundated with tomatillos, so it was good to use some.
I slow-cooked a big hunk of pork butt (actually a cut of the shoulder) with onions, garlic, and cumin, then seared it off in the broiler and made an amazing green-chili/tomatillo/lime/cilantro/pork drippings sauce that was totally outrageous.
I served the pork with some chipotle-cheddar mashed potatoes and grilled onions. Definitely a winner dinner. :) I think my husband's favorite were the brownies with home-made double chocolate ice cream though. It was devoured too fast to even get a picture.
