....even though my picture may have you scrunching up your nose in disgust.
I am not a photographer.
But I can serve up a mean pork roast.
I never buy pork roast. However, Pinterest has inspired me to make and try things I never have attempted before.
And then there's the whole crock-pot obsession. If a crock-pot is involved, I'm pretty much in.
This recipe is a keeper, as the mister loved it. Leftovers were tasty too. It took maybe ten minutes to prepare, then I walked away until it was time to serve it up. And the house smelled great all day long.

Slow Cooker Parmesan Honey Pork Roast
(copied straight from the original source)
1 (2-3 pound) boneless pork roast
2/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup honey
3 Tbsp soy sauce
2 Tbsp dried basil
2 Tbsp minced garlic
2 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
2 Tbsp cornstarch
1/4 cup cold water
Spray slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray. Place roast in slow cooker. In a small bowl, combine the cheese, honey, soy sauce, basil, garlic, oil and salt; pour over pork. Cover and cook on low for 6-7 hours or until a meat thermometer reads 160°.
Remove meat to a serving platter; keep warm. To make the gravy, skim fat from cooking juices; transfer to a small saucepan. Bring liquid to a boil. Combine cornstarch and water until smooth. Gradually stir into pan. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Slice roast; serve with gravy.

I served this with mashed potatoes (like the source suggested). The next night, I heated up the leftovers alongside baked potatoes.
I will admit to a mishap with the gravy. I completely scorched the first batch. Luckily, there were plenty of drippings to do a take two. And it was worth it....
So go buy a pork roast.
Then, because you'll have soy sauce and honey on hand, make Crock-pot Honey Sesame Chicken.
Yeah, do that too.
But maybe on a different day.
