Pork chops with peaches and pears sauce.
As the days are starting to get shorter, the feeling of the fall season is up us. Well at least in some part of the country that is, we are still having triple digit temperatures.
Last night dinner was an impromptu preparation with a touch of fall. We got home late from our after school activities and the only meat I had in hand was bone in pork chops that I just purchased from Pete at Personal Gourmet Foods. We have this great recipe in France with pork chops and sauté apples that I wanted to prepare, however with no apples on hand I chose to use the few peaches left and pears. The combination paired well and received thumbs up from my nine years old.
A green salad was just the perfect side dish.
