Mama's Pork Chops and Casserole

Sunday, August 10, 2014

If anything, I think I got my penchant for food experimentation from my mom. While she's the one who makes dinner most of the time, there was this one time she got so bored that she wanted to try something new. 

These chops are her usual baked pork chops. 

But this casserole is her experiment. She doesn't like bathing potato casseroles in cream and cheese, which is why she only added in a minimal amount of cheese, and to make the thing still taste creamy, she used starch and coconut milk to make it more creamy. 

Having no maids means we're used to having dinners like these. I know a lot of Pinoys are used to having three or four viands a night with no repetitions or no reheating, but for us, we're used to having one source of carbs and one viand. And we're also used to reheating portions of a dish till all of it is gone.

Surprisingly, though this had that island feel to it, it actually turned out good. If you're desensitized by too much cream and cheese in your foods, you may want to try coconut milk as an alternative...
