Pork Chops

So, the pork loin turned out so well, that it will become a regular favorite around the Cottage. I've made another one since then to happy results. Tonight, we'll be having pork chops. I prefer them bistro style with mustard and apple chutney and cream, and gnocchi alongside. Since I don't quite have the makings of that, I'll think we'll just have macaroni and cheese alongside to appease the toddler in the house. I'll do a jalapeno honey glaze for the Vintner, and apple chutney with brown mustard for me. I'll have green veggies to boot, but I'll be alone in that.

Pork Loin

Tonight, I'm making my first ever pork loin. I hope to master this, since they can be so impressive. I'm thinking just bay leaves and garlic for the flavoring. I'll post tomorrow as to how it turned out. I'm pairing it with white rice, and possible a green vegetable. I think spinach salad would be best, but I didn't think about that ahead of time (during the shopping.)
