Sous chef for a night

Last night I turned over the kitchen to sous chef Carrie who came up with a really great meal. Pan Fried Pork Chops w/Mushroom Pan Sauce, Vegetable Medley, Martini Macaroni and Cheese, Cream Cheese Pound Cake and Ice Cream.

I mean what more could you want. The bone in chops were seasoned with a little salt and pepper and we made a pan sauce with white wine and mushrooms. For the vegetables we simply cut up squash, onion, and a little jalapeno for heat sauteed in bacon drippings.

The star of last nights meal though was the Martini Mac and cheese. If you like olives then you will defiently love this. It was creamy and the olives added a slightly salty taste, but gave it a great texture contrast to the noodles and cheese. I would certainly make this again. It’s was also really good leftover for lunch and eaten right out of the fridge.

For dessert there was pound cake. I’m not a big dessert person but I do like pound cake, and not just any pound cake, a cream cheese pound cake. I really love the taste and texture that the cream cheese gives it versus a sour cream pound cake.

All in all a great meal that left me stuffed but, on the bright side there was left over mac and cheese. There may be some friend mac and cheese pictures coming soon.
