Was it as delicious as it sounds?

Yes, indeed. I need a good casserole recipe for the leftovers so I can freeze it. The second roast that I brined is ready to go into the oven. It is a shoulder roast with a bone. It won't stand up for the fat to be on top, so I have it on its side and sprinkled the top with rosemary and pepper. Slow and steady at 325 degrees. I'll take a picture when it is ready. Pork hocks and beans are in the freezer, as are 3 meat loaves and 18 mini meat loaves. I also cooked and froze chili and thin slices of cube steak in gravy with shiitake mushrooms, 2 taco pies, and 16 pork chops. Split pea soup is in the crock pot. I still have to make turkey soup and spaghetti sauce. (I make about 5 quarts at a time and use it various ways.) A little book that has been very useful to me in this project is called Once a Month Cooking. Almost everything is precooked and frozen. Mimi Wilson's parents were missionaries and her mother used to always keep enough on hand to feed unexpected guests. When we get ambitious, my daughter and I "cook for a month" together, for both of us.

The ham was delicious too. I roasted it together with the first pork roast. We've been eating like kings!

Wow. Sounds like you're set for more than a month! Anyone who stops over during the holidays will surely dine well at your home.
