A Creekside Linger and Ginger Lime Shredded Pork

I love my creek very much. I love laying in bed with my window open, hearing it trickle under the blackberry bushes overhanging its banks.

Every time I go to the creek I see something new and beautiful. The other day it was towering stalks soaring up through the morning glories with these ethereal pink blossoms dangling from the tops. Do any of you know what they are?

Today I was delighted to discover the blackberry bushes covered in plump, ripe berries. I popped a few in my mouth, delighting in the sweet juices warmed by the sun.

It’s been dark and rainy here the last few days, and since I’ve been unwell, the crockpot has become my new best friend.

My latest favorite dish is Ginger Lime Shredded Pork over whole grain basmati rice. I made a marinade of carrots, ginger, garlic, Hoisin Sauce, Soy Sauce and red wine and basted a lovely pork roast with it. I slow-cooked the roast about 6 hours, turning it every 30 minutes to let those delicious flavors sink into the meat. Then I cranked up the heat a bit, added a cup of diced green beans and some lime juice and cooked it for another hour until the meat was falling apart and the green beans were cooked but still pleasantly crunchy. Oh boy – did my house ever smell good!!

Joanne - WHEN I make this, I’m pretty sure it will become my favorite dish as well! Please let us know when you find out what that flower is…it is just SO pretty!

Jacqueline - Those are perennial Sweet Peas — and SO very gorgeous, particularly when accompanied by Morning Glories! Both are two of my favourite flowers from gardens past. I love climbers, and all shades of blue and pink in the garden (my downfall!)

Genevieve - Oh I love my crockpot! I must use it once a week. But I just have to try your pork Krista. It looks delish! And by the way, how do you get such fabulous photos! It’s not fair that one person has so much talent … cooking, writing, photography… And you even have natural gifts… beauty, a great sense of humor and gorgeous feet. I’m referring to the photo with ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ which has a nice shot of your pedicure. My feet have never and will never look so good.
