Trying new things….
I’ve been trying to prepare meals differently these days instead of the same old humdrum ways I have in the past. The meal I prepared of slow baked pork chops, roasted potatoes and roasted asparagus with hollandaise sauce was just scrumptious and so filling.
The roasted potatoes were a recipe I snapped up from a fellow blogger Susan, from Savoring Time in the Kitchen . It not only tasted great but it makes such a pretty presentation.
I had always steamed my asparagus but had seen so many roasting it instead. I have to admit the roasting gives it a much better flavor. Since I had a little Hollandaise sauce left over, decided to use that over the asparagus. It gave it an extra flavor that was over the top!
Paired with the slow baked pork chops, which were so tender, there was no need for a knife at all. Topped off with lots of baked onions, gave the chops that additional bit of flavor.
Such a simple meal but so very comforting and bursting with flavor! I guess an old dog can learn new tricks. For a novice cook I am enjoying trying new things which are probably old hat to most of you, but keep teaching me….I'm enjoying your lessons!
