"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

one pork roast (can be pork tenderloin, center cut, or sirloin-end roast): My preference is a bone-in roast, which has more flavor.

salt and pepper to taste

one whole onion, sliced
5 or 6 cloves of garlic, crushed
fresh parsley
fresh sage
coarse ground pepper
olive oil

Pork roast:
Mix marinade ingredients together in a pan or zip-lock bag. Add pork roast and marinate at least 3 to 4 hours, but preferably overnight. Remove pork roast from marinade and pat dry with paper towels. Reserve marinade.

Set pork on a rack in a roasting pan. Add additional garlic under the skin of the roast and salt before putting the roast in the oven. Roast at 400 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes. Lower oven temperature to 350 degrees, and roast until meat thermometer registers your preferred degree of doneness.

After you remove the roast from the marinade, place the cubed potatoes in the marinade for about 30 minutes. Remove the potatoes from the marinade, add salt and pepper to taste, and roast in 350-degree oven until browned and fork tender.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This is another of my Mom's simulated recipes -- since the only way you could get her recipe was to watch what she was doing. She wasn't secretive about what she cooked; she just did so much cooking that she didn't need a written recipe. This has always been a family favorite, so I thought I would take a shot at passing it along, even though it may not be exact.
