Pork Chop Milanese

Ended up with two kinda small’ish chops from our new meat share. This makes them more substantial. I didn’t even pound them. Just butterfly and bread.

Just joined a meat share

So, if you don’t know, a meat share is like a farming coop… but for meat. I’ve been looking for one for a while. But they either aren’t accepting new people, are crazy expensive, or you mostly get ground meat. But I think I’ve found what I’m looking for.

I just joined Walden Local Meats. This was my first meal. Flank steak with parsnip puree from homegrown parsnips and homegrown sauteed pea tendrils. The best flank steak I’ve ever had.

Homemade quick tomato sauce

Fresh in season tomatoes with relatively thin skins are really easy to use for a quick sauce no peeling (concaseeing) involved. Dice and saute in a hot pan with toasted garlic. Add basil and parsley at the end as needed. They start out quite liquidy, but cook down nicely. And you’re not likely to even notice the skin.
