Pork Chop and maybe it's the flu
Today I was well enough to go shopping, for food. Finally broccoli is affordable again, fresh carrots and mashed potatoes. Not much to talk about there. I steamed the vegetables, drained them and put them on the burner with butter and a little xv olive oil. I'm trying to get the hang of finishing vegetables with xv olive oil. If it's done right it gives them a wonderful flavor, overheat the xv oil and it will be bitter. I didn't quite get to full flavor this time. Premature plating I guess.
The pork chop was the star. I put corn flour in a plastic bag and added salt, mixed pepper and dry mustard. I shook the pork chops to coat and fried them. The condiment is fresh Apple Ketchup
made that day. The meal was the highlight of the day.
