When Lesa announced that Pork & Rice were determined as January’s Improv Challenge ingredients, my mind (& taste buds) immediately flashed back to favorite meals at Grandpa & Grandma Hull’s house. Didn’t matter who or what time someone showed up to their home, everyone was welcomed to the dinner table. Usually dinner was accompanied by Grandma’s fabulous sponge bread.
I decided to use my every day brown rice blended with a touch of some Lundberg Black Japonica™ rice.The sauerkraut was made from the lacto-fermented cabbage I started a couple weeks ago.Grandma usually baked her meal in a 9x13 casserole… that size would not be appropriate for the appetites seated around my table.
(My grandma usually used white rice & canned sauerkraut which would crisp up so nicely while roasting -- a few of us had been known to tussle over the nicely browned bits of tastiness…)What a lovely Sunday dinner!
