A face can say so much without a word being spoken. When we sit down for family dinners, I like to sit back a moment and watch as
Nancy and Quinn start in. I'm waiting for "that" face, the one where the eyes close and that deep exhalation of satisfaction can be heard. When I get "that" face, I know that the dish is more than good.
These chops and sauce got "that" face.
It wasn't just the perfect sear or the tangy, creamy sauce. It was the combination, greater than individual parts, that came together
to take away the cares of the day and brings everyone together for a few minutes of bliss. That face, and everything that comes with it, is one of my great joys in life.
My thanks to FoodNetwork.com, for the recipe that inspired this one.
I served this dish with broccoli roasted with Parmesan and fresh sweet corn.
One chop and sauce is only 201 calories with 7 grams of fat and no fiber.

Deal of the Day: Amazon has this Pinzon
