" I truly think it is best to be a robin lightly dressed concocting soup inside my nest" ~Maurice Sendak

Rinse and Repeat

I know I know.
I have said it all before.
Pork is one of the most versatile meats around and super easy to prepare.
When it comes to entertaining nothing is easier than this dish.
You can vary the stuffing ingredients to suit your tastes.
Lingonberry preserves can be found at Ikea. If you don't have any on hand cranberry sauce works well too.

You can assemble this dish in mere minutes and hangout with your guests while it roasts.
Serve with baked squash and brown rice pilaf.

Like I said. Easy. Just sayin'...
