As an Englishman living in Europe for years, this blog is about the recipes we have made for dinner and lunch parties for friends and family over the years.
I can think of nothing in life that is more pleasurable and fun than to sit down with old friends eating and drinking proper home made food made from seasonal fresh ingredients, enjoying some local wines.
The sort of Lunches that last into the night. Lunches Memories are made of.

Lemon Marinated Pork Chops
I have been a bit absent of late from my little blog for two reasons really firstly just manicaly busy at work, which is a jolly good thing given the economy, seem to be bucking the trend for now anyway so making hay whilst the sun shines. Secondly as I have posted over a hundred different dishes over the year do tend to find the dish I am making I have already blogged or it got late and just couldn't be bothered!
Anyway here is one of those dishes I made the other day when I really was a bit pressed for time and wanted a one pot wonder!
It couldn't be easier I marinated some pork chops over night in Lemon juice and Garlic then quickly pan fried them to give a bit of colour and added them to a clay pot which I had put some sliced Potato
some sliced Onions a chopped Tomato a crushed clove of Garlic and a sliced Courgette, Mixed them all together with a glug of Oil some Oregano and plenty of Salt and Pepper and a glass of White Wine and put them in a pre heated Oven for around 45 minutes before adding the Pork Chops at 200c
After 5 minutes added some frozen Peas and cooked for around another ten minutes so the chops are just cooked through.
Take the dish out the oven add the zest of a Lemon and a little squeeze of Lemon Juice and sprinkled over some Freshly chopped Parsley for Colour. Really tasty great flavours from humble little ingredients and hassle free to make!
