As I wrap up the tail end of my first week back on the job, I am still dragging a bit. Last night I was faced with the epic feat of making two meals. The Confluent Boyfriend wanted Nanette Sauce over pork chops for his birthday, which was Tuesday but I was still broken then. And I don’t eat pork chops, so I decided I pan fry the chops, and make the sauce when he got in. I started to work on my dinner.
I first broiled a couple tilapia fillets until crispy, then topped with softened cream cheese that I combined with a teaspoon of wasabi. I doctored up some sushi rice, added some minced nori into it, and sliced the avocado. It was a prep time of under 30 minutes, thank god.
For the Nanette (which I have posted many times) it couldn’t be simpler. Pan fry pork chops until cooked through and pretty. Evacuate chops, add 3/4 cup heavy cream to deglaze. Add a tablespoon each of tomato paste and Dijon. Season to taste.
I was a culinary rock star last night.. Which is why I waited til this morning to post about it.
