Garbage day is Monday. How often does one go through the refrigerator cleaning it out in anticipation of the traveling dumpster’s early morning arrival; and find ALL this food that you haven’t eaten yet??? On this particular Sunday I came across a couple of mangos that I’m sure I bought earlier in the week, I think. Still smooth-skinned, slightly firm and changing from an olive green to a muted orange-brown hue. I’m thinking, “must still be good” – although not very photogenic at this point. Dig around the ice box a little more… A few pork chops pulled from the freezer to thaw… Check the pantry for some grains… yep, looks like we have dinner for the next day!
Pork chops with a mango chutney – at least that’s what I called it. Below I used the late afternoon Western light diffused through our patio. To add some color to my white dishes, I added the multi-colored cloth beneath. I wish I would have caught the “fleck” of pork that’s sitting on the mango, but oh well! It’s all in the details from making a good picture, great, right? The dish by the way, was just yummy. The kids and hubby ate it all up!
