Pork chops and...fennel sauce.
I say that I love all vegetables, but there are some I love more than others. Fennel has always been on the not-love-so-much side of the continuum. We got some fennel in last week's CSA box and I figured I'd let it go slowly soft in the fridge (of course, I'd mean to cook it, but never get around to it) until I saw an episode of Everyday Italian last week.
Yup, Everyday Italian, with that perpendicular girl Giada De Laurentiis. She may be skinny, but she cooks some good food. Like her pork chops with fennel sauce. (I omitted the capers, because I'm not a huge fan, and I only cooked 2 pork chops so it was extra saucy - delicious with polenta.)
