Sunday's Miscellany

Last night was a "make do with what's in the house" affair since I was too lazy to go to the store at the station.

For the main course I started some diced smoked pork in olive oil with some sliced leek. When they started to soften I mixed in some leftover basmati rice, covered the pan, and let it cook for 15 minutes or so. The hope was to get a nice crust on the rice; that didn't happen but the dish was still tasty.

As a vegetable side I cooked some diced carrot with frozen peas in a bit of stock with some herbs de Provence. Just before serving I added some butter and a beet that I had diced and sauteed in a separate pan until it lightly caramelized.
