A supper for the longest night

Today, the Winter Solstice, is traditionally a day for weddings. Longest night and all that, eh.

I found a news item today that said we crave more carbs this time of year. Something about the darkness, insecurity and all. Tonight's supper covered pretty well all the fat groups, and even added a couple of root-cellar vegetables.

Roast pork, with onions and cauliflower, baked in the oven this afternoon and made the house smell cozy. Homemade perogies from my friend, Linda -- so much better than the store-bought variety. Those tiny bits of onion and potato in the filling! A cheese sauce to cover any or all of it -- the perfect wintry blanket.
