*NOTE* If you hate waiting, go watch movie, play some video games, watch 2 episodes of your favorite drama or rave about Kpop or something. Time will fly faster.
*NOTE2* You can replace the pork roast with any pork cut or any type of light colored meat (chicken, turkey, or rabbit). It is equally as tasty.
Happy eating! ^.^
