Rosemary Pork Roast

 Rosemary Pork Roast
Tender and full of flavor, this lovely roast is an impressive main dish for a Christmas dinner or any special occasion. The aroma as the roast is baking, enhanced by rosemary and garlic, is mouthwatering. While it is in the oven I decorate my dining room table.—
