We (I mean, we two, personally speaking) are never going to get through this thing on short rations. It is important to us to eat well as it is the greatest pleasure in our lives. All the same, I think it paramount not to waste food either,
Tonight I cooked pork chops. I made Potatoes Dauphinoise, which I topped with some St Nectaire cheese that was in danger of being binned. I served our meal with some fresh Rocket on the side and I cooked some onions with sage and mushrooms in the meat juices whilst the pork rested. A dollop of some Rosé Wine Jelly (from the vineyard at Neuville) balanced the finished plate nicely.
Good heavens, it was delicious (even if I say so myself.)
This is the way to get through lockdown.
We have been talking about doing Date Night: three course splendid dinners with wine and good music, to get us through this period of not being able to be out and about and dining at good restaurants, We will dress for dinner. It should be fun, and something to look forward to every week.
it will take planning. Planning which we have not done for tomorrow’s shopping trip, so we will start the week after. For now, tonight’s dinner was good enough to claim that “it counts”.
I am replete.
Pogged, more like.
