Tonight I skipped the English National Ballet (though half price tickets were available) in favor of a quieter evening at home (per shadowdaddy's request). I was struck by sudden inspiration on my way back from the lawyer's office, and picked up some pork chops at the Theobald's Road butcher shop. Once I got home I made pork chops in a blueberry sauce - the sauce a mix of reduced red wine (thanks to indigo_violet, I'll note we drank the rest :-) ), a half pint of fresh blueberries (don't even ask how much they were), and a bit of honey. While the pork chops were baking under the sauce, I made some of the fresh Sicilian tomato sauce - sauteed garlic done in a tiny bit of oil and chopped fresh (ripe and tomato-y smelling) tomatoes, cooked until the pan was dry then a bit of chopped fresh basil added and all put into a holding bowl with very good olive oil on top .... and some fresh pasta. Altogether, it was quite a nice meal. Now we're tired and full - and vacation starts tomorrow!
(PS: Thought poh would have really liked this recipe ...)
