Sunday Night - blogging and cooking

Just about to start my second attempt at pork chops with mustard sauce, with green beans, glazed carrots and baked potatoes.

Sunday night dinner

I have the ingredients prepped, I have a glass of wine in hand. Ready, steady.....GO!!!

VERDICT: J gave it 7/10 - he found the sauce a little too sweet. I give it 7.5 (only because I slaved over the stove...ha!). It turned out a lot better than my first attempt, and hopefully it'll be better the next time I try. I used single (light) cream rather than what the recipe called for, and it thickened up fine.

A little sleepy now from such a big meal. Just going to finish up that bottle of wine before heading off to bed. I can't believe the weekend is over already!

Sunday night dinner - excuse the dodgy looking baked potato!

Try the recipe for pork chops out of Jamie Oliver's newish Italian cookbook, it is a ripper.

PS - thanks for all your NYC information. Found your site on one of many google searches before going on holiday to the big apple in March this year. I still drop in from time to time to see what is happening with your blog because I'm a foodie too - based in melbourne.

Thanks for your comment Ken. I'd love to see some of your pics of NY if you have them. I've been missing NY terribly lately!
