This will hopefully be a regular thing because I like to cook and it forces me to do my dishes. The format will be: ingredients for all dishes, then instructions on how to cook everything at once cause that's how I roll.
HERE IS A DINNER FOR TWO THAT I COOKED TONIGHT AND ATE ALONE Sauteed apples & onions
1/2 large white onion
1 apple--I used Gala because that's what I had, but any tart variety should work
fresh ground nutmeg--I have one of those whole nutmegs/grater deals, the end product is much sharper and more aromatic than pre-ground. Also great in leek & potato soup, by the way.
I also considered putting in ginger, mustard, turmeric, cinnamon, or curry powder. Anything warm and spicy would have worked.Rosemary Pork Chops
2 pork chops
handful of rosemary
handful of garlic cloves Mashed potatoes
(not as boring as it looks)
First things first, chop those potatoes up in little chunks and throw em in some boiling water. Then slice your onion and put it in a skillet with some butter. Cook to desired degree. Slice apple, add to skillet. Throw on desired spices. Set aside. Don't overcook or the apple will get mushy! I learned this because I took too long deciding what to put on them
Chop each garlic clove in half or so, heat in a skillet with rosemary and olive oil.
Remember those potatoes? They should be boiled half to death now. Mash the crap out of them! (note to self: buy a potato masher)
Oh crap that garlic is looking a little brown. No matter! Scoop them out and put them in the potatoes. Yum.
Throw your pork chops into the hot skillet, salt and pepper til they look good. Cook til pink inside, especially if you're like me and leave the finding of a clean plate til the last minute, the residual heat will finish the job.
