I used green garlic instead of regular garlic and leeks instead of onion. And I roasted the pork for longer than the five minutes recommended. I don't care what anyone says, I do not like to see any pink in my pork.
I teamed this with garlic goat cheese mashed potatoes and roasted zucchini.
We're leaving tomorrow afternoon to head up to Tahoe for a little skiing (Sunday and Monday). Sophie asked "Will there be powder, Mama?" No, probably not. The days have been into the 50s, with the nights back below freezing, so anything off piste will be like skiing over an ice cube field in the morning, turning to glue-like slush in the afternoon. Spring skiing, you know.
If I don't get back to post about the carnitas roasting in my oven overnight, have a good weekend!
