Happy 5th Anniversary, Dinner is Served 1972!

Yep. I got the little WordPress notification yesterday. February 24th was the day of my first post. Which was basically THIS:

So far I have learned that I need a lot to learn about blogging. I think that the cooking part of this whole thing will be much easier. I am still trying to find where I can put the whole “about” nonsense; because, without that, the point of said blog is rendered utterly moot (or moo, since it is as pointless as a cow’s opinion).

41. Fruit Stuffed Pork Loin was my first completed dinner.

I have fond memories of this dinner. I remember it being really good.

I guess you always remember your first time…

Also, I can go back and read what I wrote about it:

I must admit that the pork loin was really good. Very juicy. The fruit added just enough sweetness. I enjoyed the potatoes. I think it would be even better to glaze them and then put them in the oven to brown a bit. Overall, If I were to make this again I would change the sides to sauerkraut and dumplings and a braised kale or collard green. There would be no gravy.

Here’s a thought: what if I went back and made this dinner again? Ya know, to go back with everything I know now (e.g. I now can make a custard).

I think I could make 41. Fruit Stuffed Pork Loin AMAZING.

It seems a very appropriate ending to Dinner is Served 1972. Full circle and all that shit, amiright?

I think I just decided that I will do that.

But anyhoo,  the anniversary of Dinner is Served 1972 coincides with the adoption anniversary of my beloved King of the WTF Face, Brian!

WTF Brian

I know a lot of you tune in just for Brian. So…

Oh, Brian. That video kills me. I know it’s the music, but whatever.

REMEMBER! Only TWO dinners left before I wrap up this thing!

P.S. the traditional 5th anniversary gift is wood. Modern is silverware.

    Happy Anniversary, my love. You sure know how to make your old man smile and laugh. I think the Pork Loin would be the perfect ending to a fabulous adventure.

    I did not know Brian had his own Brian pillow.

    Also, why stop in 2 dinners? THE WORLD NEEDS YOU. I’m sure there’s a whole other recipe set you can find

    Congrats on five years! I was going to make a joke about wood being good for any anniversary, but I’m a classy lady so I won’t. As always, hurrah for the Brian pictures!

    Congrats…from one of your “first” fans. I’ll give you wood, I mean, uhhhh, HAPPY 5th! I’ll look for silverware, now.

    Looking for card #76 or #79… “Stuffed Green Peppers”. I would be forever greatful if anyone could find and send the recipe to me! It was my favorite. I even used the filling for Cabbage Rolls. Please put Stuffed Peppers in subject line. TIA!
