My passions - things that grow pretty or yummy, cooking things I grow with a pinch of sugar and spice and my love of photos and journals. Not least of all my family - like Kumquats mainly sweet but can be "tart" and so often pixelated. Always, always with humor and love.
August 4, 2015 A week ago, just as we were pulled into our driveway, a salesman from Meat Delivery company waylaid us. Daughter was hesitant but I was ready to have another source for steaks. Plus, the fridge had been bare since our mini vacation 2 weeks ago.... and I was too busy/ lazy to go shopping. Long story short, I bought some goodies from him. I got a selection of beef tenderloin, jumbo prawns, Ahi Tuna, Kobe Burgers and Boned in Pork Chop. The latter was the inspiration for tonight's dinner. I have been trying to recreate this Pork Chop with a mushroom sauce that Helen Headke, my sister-in-law's mother used to serve us. Even my sister-in-law has lost the recipe. It has been so long since I had the dish, I don't remember exactly how it taste, only remembering how good it tasted. She used to serve it alongside with her Pasta Primavera. BH who also loves Helen's pork chop asked if this was her recipe. This is first version to the Pork Chop and the mushroom BH has said he likes!! This is a tribute to Helen Haedke.
