It's 10/10/19 Pork Chop Thursday

For dinner tonight, I am cooking two boneless pork chops by sous vide. I'll sear them in cast iron. As sides we're having stuffing and sweet corn.

How are you celebrating pork Chop Thursday?

Here's a photo to prove it actually happened.

Not pork chops.....
I made something we call Chicken Apollo. Years go we had a dish in a restaurant called that and we really liked it. I tried to reproduce it at home, and we liked mine as well or better. So it's become a standby.
Sauteed chicken breast, topped with sauteed mushrooms and shallots, fontina and provolone layed on a bed of sauteed spinach. Drizzle over the top with rosemary basalmic glaze and sprinkle with chiffonade of basil. The side was orzo cooked in chicken stock.

Our supper is still in the works, but no photo will be forthcoming. While we absolutely love the sheer comfort of "cheesy potato soup", it's not really photogenic. Basically very loose mashed potatoes ladled over chunks of cheese (today we'll have colby) topped with minced onion and drizzled with vinegar (I like apple cider), it's just what today's chilly weather needs - or at least what we need.

Time to test (and, hopefully, mash) the 'taters...

Haven't been posting in these threads lately but I should. Dining alone it's easy to devolve into eating protein from the skillet and salad over the sink, lettuce head in one hand and salad dressing bottle in the other.

Not a picture worthy dish here tonight either, but it sure was good.

Although it's not soup weather, I did a killer Cream of Mushroom Soup made really special with lots of assorted mushrooms/white wine/leeks/fresh thyme/cooked wild rice. Better Than Bullion, mushroom flavor made the perfect base for everything.

Garlic toast on the side made a meatless meal for a change.

I made a country omelette with chives from the garden and feta cheese. We had whole grain sunflower seed and wheat toast with that.

Thank you. I love pears with spinach! Have you ever put the pears in a spiralizer? Kind of a PITA, but makes a cool presentation.
