Meal No. 1739: Pork Medallions with Ginger-Shiitake-Soy Cream Sauce
Last Saturday night was the occasion for the Mookie birthday dinner, and his menu choice was pork medallions in the famous ginger-shiitake-soy cream sauce that's been making folks happy here for quite a few years now. With it, I also prepared layered green bean casserole and company mashed potatoes. The crew was generous in its praise of the fixins.
There was also dessert: a return to the amazing lemon velvet cake that I first tried out last August. And it was yet again a pretty remarkable slice of heaven on our little black plastic plates.
