But in the nicest possible way of course.
I mentioned in my ‘Today is……… ‘ post earlier that we were having pork chops with stuffing (if I had any) and a certain person asked if she could come to dinner.
Well Lorraine, this post is for you.
I surpassed myself.
I cooked the chops as I always do, in water in a frying pan, nice and slowly so that they cook all the way through and remain moist.
I put our new potatoes, baton carrots and green beans in a saucepan and added a generous sprig of mint from the garden.
My stuffing mix was out of a box which said it made about 12. I got 10 out of it which made the sums easy for calculating the syn value. Each 25g of made up stuffing mix attracts 1½ syns, so as my box was 170g, I rounded it up to 175g for my figures. That equated to 7 x 25g, so 7 x 1.5 syns, which is 10.5 syns for the whole box. So one stuffing ball was calculated at having 1.05 syns. I rounded that down to 1 syn each.
I sprayed a little oil into another frying pan, and put my balls in it (get your minds out of the gutter!) turning them often so that they didn’t catch. The whole meal took 25 minutes to cook and about five minutes before I was ready to serve, I sliced one of our onions and added that and a stock cube to the liquid with the chops to make my gravy.
Wonderful. The one centre left is the biggest and that has your name on it Lorraine.
These are my stuffing balls, and this is my 2 syn dinner today
We have six stuffing balls left which we’ll have sliced in a baguette with some chicken later.
