Cheese pork chops.

The Fall air is one of my favorites. The days are getting shorter the morning are colder.

Our home cooking reflect that by having a more sauces, more oven cooked meals.

The aromas that linger in the house are warming to the soul.

Last night I prepared one of my old favorite meal, cheese pork chops.  A classic winter French recipe.

The heavy cream tenderizes the meat, which was already tender to start with, the mustard gives a small bite, the cheese blends well.

The cream and mustard combination is one of my favorite, soft cream with a tanginess to it.  A nice variation is using grain mustard. The cheese… well I am French so all cheese is good for me.

However, with this dish, you will really enjoy the combination.

Nothing portrays Fall better than Brussels sprouts.

To maximize my time I did not peel leaves by leaves, but instead, I sliced them in thin slices. the same result while cooking, faster prep time.

Could not have our first official Fall meal without potatoes.

A nice glass of Chardonnay by Sterling Vineyard was perfect.
