Well, I’ve made our reservations on the Zen train for the boarding school in Alsace, I’ve booked the dog into the Doggy Pension for next Tuesday, I’ve gotten the French doctor to sign off on a “good health” certificate for Jade and I’ve marked all her clothes with indelible black ink. The weather is reasonable today so we decided to go to the market, have coffee and people watch for a while.
Nothing says Fall is coming like cute little potiron pumpkins. I had to buy one! And a whole bunch of other stuff. What the heck, I’m not leaving for a week :D The Vietnamese lady was back from vacation and so I bought some of her prepared noodles to go with my thawing, freezer pork chops.
Easy Char Sui Pork Chops
4 pork chops
Char sui sauce (homemade or good quality jar)
Spring onions, sliced
Marinate the chops in the char sui sauce for at least 2 hours or overnight. Roast in a 400 F oven, on a roasting pan rack for 25 minutes, turn, brush with marinade and continue to roast for an additional 15 minutes. Sprinkle with the onions and cilantro and serve with Vietnamese noodles.
