On Sunday evening I invited my son and his wife over for dinner. I wanted to try some new recipes that I had never tried before. My guests were invited to serve as guinea pig taste testers.
The first new idea to me was a cross between Scalloped Potatoes and Fondant Potatoes. I cooked the potatoes like Fondant Potatoes but used a cream and gruyere cheese sauce instead of chicken stock.
I caught America's Test Kitchen episode recently to get the idea for Monroe County Kentucky BBQ Pork Chops. Basically it is grilled seasoned pork chops that is bathed in a seasoned browned butter vinegar sauce.
Finally from Facebook I cooked a Korean Inspired Zucchini Stir Fry.
An arugula, watermelon, blue cheese salad dressed with balsamic vinegar completed the meal.
No one called in sick this morning, and I had very few leftovers. I think the meal was a success.
