Attention KTA shoppers! Open your new Super Saver booklets and turn to page 52. That is where you will find this recipe (Crispy Pork Chops with Mushroom-Stout Gravy). Yum! Mr. L likes anything with a sauce, but I hadn't cooked with stout in a sauce before, so I wasn't sure how this would turn out. It's delicious. You can still taste the stout, but it's not overpowering. This is not a difficult recipe, but make sure you get organized (mise en place) before you start cooking. This also would have been nice with mashed potatoes. We had coleslaw on the side. For those of you who are not fortunate enough to receive KTA booklets in your mailbox, check their website. The recipe is not up as of this writing, but will be, soon.
My pal Rosemary is of Swedish descent and has been giving me some of her favorite recipes. Tonight I'm going to try Biff a la Lindstrom. I'll put the recipe below. I think I'll change it up a little, putting the beets and capers on top (along with some pickles, maybe) and serving the potatoes on the side, crisped. Let's play around with it. Apologies to the Lindstroms, who might be offended.
We had a lovely promenade around Liliuokalani Park this morning; I'll include a photo. We chatted with some "snowbirds" from Canada, who live here four months of the year. They aren't missing the snow. What a nice way to spend your retirement.

Sunday: The aforementioned Biff.
Monday: Pulled Pork Enchiladas with Chiles; Salad with Avocado and Tomatoes
