The Lady & Sons #1

Farmer's Pork Chops

8 medium potatoes
1/2 medium onion
Salt & pepper, to taste
White sauce (see recipe below)
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 Tbsp Lawry's Seasoned Salt
8 center-cut pork chops, about 1/2 inch thick
1/3 cup vegetable oil

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Peel potatoes; slice 1/4 inch thick and cover with cold water. Slice onion into very thin slices. Cut slices in half. Drain potatoes; layer half the potatoes in a well-greased 15 x 10-inch casserole dish. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Scatter half of onion slices on top of potatoes. Repeat with remaining potatoes and onions. Cover potatoes with white sauce. Cover casserole dish with plastic wrap and microwave for 5 minutes on high or
bake uncovered for 15 minutes. Mix together flour and seasoned salt and dredge pork chops in flour mixture. Lightly brown chops in vegetable oil. Do not cook them completely. As chops are removed from frying pan, lay them on top of potatoes. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-60 minutes. The juices from the pork chops will drip down into the potatoes. Delicious! Serves 8

White Sauce

8 Tbsp (1 stick) butter
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 to 2 tsp salt
1/2 to 3/4 tsp pepper
4 cups milk
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley or chives (optional)

Melt butter; remove from heat. Stir in flour; add salt and pepper. Return to heat and cook, stirring constantly, until mixture is bubbly. Add milk, 1 cup at a time. Bring to boil over medium heat, stirring frequently. Reduce heat and simmer 1 to 2 minutes, then let stand at least 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in parsley or chives, if desired.

These were a hit all around.  The potatoes were so creamy and good!!

Paula Deen

I <3 Paula Deen.   I don't think I have ever eaten anything from a Paula recipe that I didn't love.  Her recipes are not for the faint at heart.  Not for people watching their weight.  And not for people with high cholesterol!

That being said, I am going to cook my way through my Paula Deen books.  The weather has turned and I feel like cooking again.  I didn't do a whole lot of serious cooking this summer between traveling and it being so hot.

The Lady & Sons Savannah Country Cookbook Collection

These are the books I am starting with.  I will go through The Lady & Sons first and share likes/dislikes, pictures and include the recipes.

I will admit there are a few recipes I am a little nervous about.  Being from Savannah, Paula uses a lot of seafood.  We love seafood, but I usually leave it up to restaurants to prepare it for me.

Wish me luck!
