Honey Mustard Glazed Pork (with Mash, Sautéed Leeks and Cabbage)


It rained quite a lot today and also was very windy, so quite a miserable day.  The strong wind broke the pole we had been using to support the tomato plant.  I’ve been thinking that we seem to be having so many very windy days since we moved, but my sister-in-law said this is quite unusual.  It’s supposed to get better tomorrow then the temperature on Friday in London will be above 30C.

今日の夕食は、Hello Fresh の「 Honey Mustard Glazed Pork (with Mash, Sautéed Leeks and Cabbage)」(蜂蜜とマスタードをかけたポーク、マッシュポテト、リークとキャベツのソテー)でした。以前に一度オーダーしてみたら、美味しかったので。

Today’s dinner was ” Honey Mustard Glazed Pork (with Mash, Sautéed Leeks and Cabbage)”, we had this once before and we liked it.


As always they gave us too many potatoes, so we kept some of the cooked potato and I made a potato salad for lunch in the next couple of days.  You cook leek and cabbage in my favourite way of cooking green vegetables – sauté then steam with a little water.  Pork is just pan fried both sides, then topped with a mixture of honey and mustard.  Then you put some apple and sage jelly with a splash of water in the same pan, after you’ve taken the pork out, to make a sauce.  A very simple dish but the mustardy and sweet sauce goes with the pork well and we enjoyed it.


However, we thought there wasn’t enough vegetables and the colour of the dish is very brownish so we added some carrots to brighten it up.  We feel it’s better if we got fewer potatoes and had another vegetable but I guess British people love potatoes so much – or potatoes are cheaper.











Fortunately, my  “occipital neuralgia” this time has been a mild one, at least from the 2nd day, and is nearly gone now.  I can still feel the soreness now and again but it’s not sharp and not strong and haven’t taken painkillers yesterday or today.  I feel so relieved as it can get so painful.
