But there are times that I miss the big Sunday dinners I use to make. This Sunday I found myself craving roasted vegetables and pot roast. I also did not want to heat up my kitchen. So I made it as easy on myself as I could.
Turned into these, roasted and not dried out.
When all was done I just let my meat rest while I reduced the juices and thicken slightly to make a very nice tasty sauce.
Now for dessert. We really needed something light after this meal. I found a recipe on Pinterest that really intrigued me. It was just a box of Angel Food cake mix and a can of crushed pineapple. That's it! You stir the two together and bake in a 9x13 pan and it was very nice. I just wanted a little more flavor to it. It made me think of the ambrosia pudding I use to make. So I added some of those flavors.
I don't have any canned pineapple so I used my Thrive Pineapple Chunks that I reconstituted with water then blitzed in the blender to "crush". I added drained mandarin oranges and coconut.
Stirred gently and poured into a parchment lined pan.
After it baked in the Sun Oven I created a glaze using the mandarin orange juice and powdered sugar. Drizzed glaze on top of the cake and sprinkled some extra coconut.
Tasted even better than it looks!
