I like to cook the side dishes while he is cooking the pork. I generally start about 1o minutes after him. It’s nice because this ends up being an easy 30 minute meal stove to table.

With both of us working we reserve meals that take longer to the weekends unless I have free day where I can pop it on earlier.
